3/14/12 Mini BOOBs...and "The Best Laid Plans Of Mice..."

Yes, I have them.  Mini boobs.But that's not what I'm talking about...

I met with some local Banders/Sleever yesterday for lunch.  It was a historic one, worthy of some celebrating (and note the soup all around)! 

From left:
- Me.
- Judi- one of my role models and favorite banders.
Chris- Just Banded and celebrating her first day of MUSHIES!  YAY Chris (we all remember that day!).  So sweet, and she's doing great!!
Lee Ann- Moving to Texas TODAY with her family *sniff, sniff*!  We'll miss you Lee Ann (and Texas, you got a good one)!

In other news...

(L)BG, you just announced putting the book online.  What are you going to do next?

I'm going to Disney World!!! 
DH is attending a conference in Orlando and the sales guy who was supposed to go with him just quit/left for another job.  He just decided to take us and make it a mini-vaca/long weekend (the conference is over a weekend).  We're taking DS2 (his only trip there was in Kindergarten) and he's SO excited. 

Here's the rub (no, there's no downside to going to see the mouse)...we leave in 10 days...we have to change a four night stay (I'm bookending Disney on-site hotels, and off-site for the weekend).

OK, I've been there a number of times, but 10 days to plan a trip like this???!!

Excuse me while I hit the Disney Forums (they have one of those on LBT, right?  LOL)... *hi ho, hi ho, it's off to plan I go*...

Facebook For Super-Dummies...or Blondes

I'm having a blonde moment...make that a blonde day.  Can someone please help me because I feel like a moron?!  And yes, I tried 'Facebook For Dummies'...I'm apparently dumber than that.
I need help with Facebook interacting ('friending/liking'), basically getting started, and I need so much help that I don't even know what to here's me trying...

I set up a Facebook account (Lap Band Groupie) in Feb.  I created a lovely profile pic (long vertical)and today I even switched to the new Facebook layout they just announced (now long horizontal) and changed my 'cover' pic (thought I was clever).  I've posted a few Facebook updates along the way and I added a Facebook 'like' and 'share' button here on my blog.  I also read a ton of stuff today and made sure I've 'verified' my page by my phone number today.  I added a 'username' today ('LapBandGroupie' no spaces were allowed), although I'm not sure how that's different than the account I'd set up weeks ago.  Facebook told me I could now 'tell all my friends they can find me at '  (I'm hoping you'll see what I see when you go doesn't say anything like 'wall' if that helps).

Here's my questions/issues:

- There's no 'search' area at the top of my page (OK, not even sure page is the right word as my DS thinks I still need to create some sort of Fan Page...whatever that is) to look up people for me to 'friend'.  Everything I've read in 'Help' says every page in Facebook has a search where the heck am I if I'm not on Facebook then?  My kids couldn't figure out what I did.

- When my kids try to look me up in Facebook with their searchbox...that they have on their Facebook ('LapBandGroupie' or 'Lap Band Groupie'), I'm not there. 

- It looks like people are 'liking' and 'sharing' with the buttons I put on here (I see there are numbers now), but what does that mean?  Should something be showing up on my Facebook page? 

- There's nothing on my page, but what I've created/added...when/how does this become interactive?  What am I missing here to start connecting with others?  Do I need to create something else?  Is there something else to verify, or change in security?

Thanks for holding my hand...will you be my 'friend' or 'like' me still (now that you know how blonde I am)...*sigh*
