Pinterest, You Owe Me Two Days of My Life

Oh, Pinterest.  I remember when I scoffed at joining your site.  Who needs to join another site? I didn't know.  I didn't know the sheer satisfaction I could derive from saving ideas found on the web into categorized pinboards.  I've been doing this for years with images torn from magazines.    It all started when I decided I wanted to paint my 26 year old cabinets in my kitchen.  So I went to Pinterest in search of ideas and two days later I'm blinking away the spirals in front of my eyes.  You are dangerous, Pinterest.   But fun and useful, too.  Because in the past I would have bought tons of magazines and torn out loads of pages from them and filed them in folders that took up half my filing storage.  This is much better.   So thank you.  Now instead of being a paper hoarder I can be a digital hoarder.

And now it's time to tell myself:

I don't need more ideas, 
I need to execute some that I already have.

If you were trying to discourage your followers from joining Pinterest, you FAILED! I had never heard of it before! It's soooo alluring.

Epic Fail. It really is a great site. But I can't be responsible if you lose two days of your life adding things to all kinds of fun categories. BUT I think it would be a good application for students as well with homeschooling. There, I justified it!
