It's been a while! Things are good here. Still creating, still mommying, still singing.
I decided last night it was time for a break from facebook, like a real break, like a don't-even-look-at-it-for-a-number-of-days break. It feels weird.
I love facebook for many reasons, first among them is the fantastic opportunity to be in touch with people I care for. On more than one occasion, I have gotten to know people from different facets of my life better than I have ever known them before and realized how very much we have in common. I love that.
What I hate about facebook is how addictive it is. I've gotten to the point that I check it whenever I'm bored, which, apparently, is a lot, because I check it all the time.
I also hate getting hurt feelings because of facebook. It's so strange to be a party to people's conversations, and I find myself wondering why they choose not to involve me in their plans or their inside jokes quite often. It's sooooo easy to be passive aggressive on facebook. I guess I'm still a self-conscious teenager inside sometimes.
This break will be good because I can concentrate on other things (among them my blog, obviously). I hope I won't just replace fb time with blogging, though, or some other equally-as-distracting activity.
On another note, I'd love it if you looked at (and followed!) my other scary and embarrassing blog, This Fat Lady Sings. I'm done being fat and am sharing my weight-loss journey with posterity. Eeek!
