Has the time come?

To give up desserts? Probably so.
To give up fried food? Absolutely.
To give up Diet Dr. Pepper? Already did.
To give up Facebook? Mehhh, I don't think it would hurt.

Today, I spent almost an entire hour deleting people off of my Facebook. Seriously, an hour. I know that I could have used the baby's nap time a lot more productively, like say do another load of laudry, but instead I decided to clean up my friends list. I'm not even sure what made me do it...oh wait....yes I do.  I guess I'm just kind of sort of over it...over the people, over the drama, over the stupid nonsense that I let myself get sucked into. Ha, we even found out that one of Ryan's "friends" had a baby via FB. Ridic. Now, I know that I could just very easily not sign on, but it's that temptation. I know it's there and I can't help but be curious about what's going on. In reality, I only care about maybe 50 people's life. Like their real day-to-day life. I would like every little thing they post if it didn't seem so absurd. Also, those people that are my real "friends" all have my phone number if it's that serious. But, on the flip-side, there are "friends" on my list that aren't my real-life friends, but they could be and they are the people I will always say hello to if I see them out. It's going to be hard at first being someonewho doesn't have Facebook, but I think I need it. I'm tired of hiding behind a computer and a phone. I'm shooting for a month of being Facebook free. We will see how it goes. I think if I do come back, I will be so tempted to start a new account. Do I really need drunken pictures from 2007 sprinkled all over FB land? Um, no... I think not. What I need is a place to share pictures with close friends and family that I don't get to share every day. Then again, isn't that what my blog is for? I will be 100% committed to updating my blog more often. My mother and husband are probably my #1 and #2 blog readers. In fact, mom gets sad if I don't post and if I do post and it's just a picture. I'm going to say bye-bye to FB after the baby's first birthday, simply to prepare my mother (aka give her time to bookmark my blog address). Wish me luck.

P.S. The fact that this gets posted on FB seems absurd after the fact. Ha.


  1. This is crazy! I have seriously been considering doing this myself. I talk myself into it and then I'm like.. well but this person and this person have FB and I never get to see them and blah blah blah. I just need to bite the bullet. Maybe it's another one of those things we need to hold each other accountable for. I am so on the edge of doing it. Do you have a Twitter? I am somewhat tempted to try that instead. I just don't know...

  2. I REFUSE to get a Twitter account. Facebook and a blog is enough for me. I just know it would clutter my life even more. Since I posted this I deleted over 300 people from my FB and I already feel 100% better. I just keep deleting and deleting and deleting and I love it. I feel like I can "use" it again and not be annoyed.


I love reading your comments!
