No More Facebook (At least for now)...

So, I've been realizing that lately I've been wasting a lot of time on Facebook.  Like three hours a day total time.  It's addicting.  It's silly.  I do nothing but open, close, and reopen my laptop, just to check Facebook. It's addicting. 

I need a break.

So I'm taking my own little version of a sabbatical.  A sabbatical from Facebook.  

I waste so much time just checking and rechecking people's status' and pictures.  It's crazy.  I don't know how this happened, but it did. 

So, I want to see what I can accomplish when I'm not on Facebook.  I thought that this would be a good way to start my week of getting on track with my diet (lifestyle change, isn't that what they tell you to call it these days).  Think of all the time I will have when I don't have Facebook to keep me distracted.  We also just got the Rosetta Stone in the mail, so now I can have a good addiction (hopefully).  

I've told people to follow my blog, snail mail me, e-mail me, or, brace yourself... call me!  I'm not available on Facebook for at least the next the week.  My hubby is changing my password for me and under no circumstances can he give it to me!  So, I hope no one does anything exciting this week!  I hope I don't miss being a voyeur for a week.  It's going to drive me nuts, at least for the first few days, to not see 300+ for status updates...

Here goes nothing.

Dana I think you are awesome! I hear you... I have such a love/hate relationship with facebook as well... I never get to see my family so that's why I tell myself I keep it. But when push comes to shove they can pick up the stinking phone and call me right? It doesn't happen much... when it does its a "hey so in so is pregnant" call... or "so in so is getting married," etc. Can you post the link of your blog to xanga so I know how to get here so I can read your blog more regularly? :)

I think you rock Dana :)
And I'm thankful that you are my friend as cheesy as that sounds!
I'll talk to you soon!

Thanks so much for the comment!

I keep the blog going because it helps me vent stuff and keep my writing up (also i know my brother checks it out and so do my mom and dad and their significants so it makes me smile and feel connected)... i wish it was easier to stay in contact with people too, i wish it wasn't just a facebook thing! my week is over and i really don't enjoy it- i went on today and now i don't even miss it!

i saw your mom the other day at the restaurant- she's such a great soul... you're a lucky girl!

i'm thankful you're my friend too :) i hope all is well and that you're enjoying the little ones! i'll post you a note on xanga :)
