Facebook and Friday!

Well, I finally broke down and started a profile on Facebook. So many people have encourgaged me to do so and I resisted over and over. The problem for me is TIME. Which often seems to be my enemy rather than my friend. I'm already on Shoutlife, which consumes some of my time, and I try to maintain this blog, my website, send out a quarterly newsletter (which I have no idea if anyone reads!) answer all fan emails, book signings, etc. The last thing I needed was another site to maintain. But, I'm really going to try and keep up with it all (And write a full length novel every 6 month!) Oh, and did I mention, I'm also a full time housewife and mother? HELP!
Anyway, if you're on Facebook, please do me the honor of requesting my friendship! I'd appreciate it. And a reader of mine also started a fan club for me there. The M.L. Tyndall fan club. If you'd like to be a part of that, I'd be thrilled!

Anyway, Happy Friday! I don't know about you, but I really look forward to the weekends! My weeks are so full of work and writing and all that goes into it, that I'm anxious for a change of scenery (from my computer screen!) Plus, I get to spend more time with my handsome husband and our children and relax. I love church on Sunday too. That time where I can enter the sanctuary and completely focus on the Lord and what He has done for me. Plus our pastor always gives such a great sermon. And it's usually something I need to hear!

What is your favorite part about your weekend? I'd love to hear your comments.


  1. Reading books sometimes even in one sitting. :)

  2. Oh Marylu, I live for the weekends! No alarm clocks to wake me up telling me "another school day!" I love the sleep I get to take...looonnng Sunday naps, and yes, time with my family!

    Thank God for weekends!

  3. First, yeah for facebook! will be inviting you as a friend when I am done here. I love your books and posted a message on the fan site on facebook. Looking forward to more pirate adventures.. arrgh :)

    I am a substitute teacher, so I also look forward to weekends. Sometimes we do house/yard projects or just relax, but either way, it is nice to spend time with family.
    God Bless, Ruth :)

  4. Yippee! Welcome to facebook! I understand the feeling of trying to keep up with it all. Sometime we just need a break! :o)

  5. That is great! I will definitely friend request you. I tried looking for the fan club before, but couldn't find it. So I'm glad I have a way to join now : )

    My favorite part of the weekend is sunday. I work on saturdays, but on sundays there is church in the morning, then I can relax for a while, and then youth group at night. It's really great to see the people that you really only see at church, and to be in an environment where everyone believes in God and everything encourages you in your walk with God, instead of trying to pull you from that path.

  6. Hi MaryLu, I just looked you up on FB and added you. I've had SO much fun reconnecting with old friends there.

    I love weekends, too. I get extra time with my hubby, which I always appreciate. We usually try to have a family game night every weekend, which I enjoy. This fall it was soccer every Saturday, but that is over now.
