I quit Facebook tonight. I will admit, it was a little hard to do. Kind of like when we canceled our cable. I knew it would be hard at first - like a detox phase - but then I wouldn't miss it anymore.
If you are interested here is why: I was a little obsessive compulsive with it. I knew it wasn't good when I was telling Hope to "hold on a minute" while I finished reading people's status updates. I certainly don't want the girls staring at the back of my head while I read about what other people are doing :) They are only young once, right?
I heard a thing on Moody radio a few weeks ago about being desensitized to things because of information overload. I think that is me a bit. I want to be really excited about my friends having babies and getting married and such, but when I read about 2 (facebook)"friends" a week having babies, then it gets monotonous. Know what I mean? Maybe I shouldn't have just written that.
Anyway, it just wasn't good for me at this stage in my life. Maybe if its still around in a few more years, then I'll be back. And everybody will still probably be there for me to get back into touch with.
For now, I'm sticking with good, old-fashioned e-mail ;) Send me one when you get the chance!
