One Week without Facebook and I'm ok!

Ok so yeah, it hurts not being on Facebook, but I am ok. If I never saw Facebook again, I would live, I promise. I started my new position at work on Monday so I have been getting settled in at my new desk and taking it all in. No time for Facebook anyway now. This is going to be a piece of cake! The girls are at their Dad's house this week and I am getting used to my new longer hours at work (major dislike) of getting home 1 1/2 hours later than I used to. When I do get home, everything....and I mean everything is there waiting for me to do at 5pm when I walk in the door. Oh yeah, I get the 5 o'clock door prize of laundry...dishes, cooking, cleaning, homework, pet care...ALL of it!! YAY!! ME!!! Sometimes I certainly feel like I am the ONLY person who lives in this house. NO ONE pitches in and helps a poor gal out. Well, I read one time that you teach people how to treat you and in my case, looks as if somewhere along the line, I have taught people that it's okay to leave everything up to me to take care of while you make messes, don't bother pitching in and not cleaning up after yourself one bit. Nice. Note to self** you better get working a better game plan sister, or people are just going to CONTINUE to walk all over you. Thankyouverymuch!

Things I Have Learned

I guess I have learned a few things over the years. I am sharing them with you here. :)

It’s way easier to fall in love than to stay in love. And no matter what the sad songs say about romance, broken hearts do mend.

You really CAN'T judge a book by it's cover.

I'd rather live a life of 'Oh Well's' than a lifetime full of 'what if's?'

If you do what you've always done, then you are going to get what you always got.

You can't always get what you want. But if you try sometimes, you just might get what you need.

Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things and no good thing ever dies.

The world is a book and for people who do not travel, well you have only read one page of it.

Change your thoughts and you'll change your world.

Holding onto grudges is just letting people live rent free in your head.

Happiness is a way of travel, not a destination.

The best is yet to come.

You should let your past make you better, not bitter.

Somtimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead.

If the music is too loud, then you're too old.

There are people who love you dearly but just don't know how to show it.

Regardless of your relationship with your parents, you miss them terribly after they die.

Making a living is not the same thing as making a life.

Day 2 with no Facebook...ehhhh...

So, just a quick drop by to say that even though I am still feeling pretty cut off from life, friends and family at this point, I really am ok with it. It's Thursday and I am looking forward to the weekend. You all won't be able to get a glimpse of my fabulous rock start life as there won't be any random, all over the place check-in's to track me all weekend. I think I am going to be ok with you all not knowing my every move though, **sniff**sniff**!

Day One....oh wow!

So this morning, my usual routine felt all inside out. I posted my last post on Facebook last night for the next 46 days. My morning routine normally consists of a cup of java and a quick Facebook scan. Who's got a birthday? So, what's new with my friends? You know, the normal routine. Not today though. I checked the weatherbug app on my phone to check out the weather, then sipped on my hot coffee. Silence, what to do with myself? *shrugs to myself*... So when I get to work I realize, that if I fully intend to keep this promise to myself and to God, then I can't all. Which means I can't peek at Facebook from my phone AND I can't cheat by reading comment replies in my email inbox. I can't help but wonder who replied to my post and what they said? Curiosity killed that darn cat and it may kill me before this is over. I am feeling very cut off from the world. I don't just use Facebook to chat and interact with my friends, but I get my news there as well. I friended local news stations, radio stations, huffington post and all that stuff shows up in my daily newsfeed. UGH! I am really cut off from the feels like anyway, hahaha!!! I am feeling stiff and uncomfortable. Hope this gets better!

Giving up Facebook for Lent

So I was talking today at work about what I was planning on giving up for Lent, when my coworker mentioned how many people were giving up social networking, i.e, Facebook, Twitter, etc. I thought about that on my way home from work today and I thought I never go one day without checking in on Facebook. Maybe I should try that. I can give up 46 days of Facebook for God right? Sure.I.can. EEK!! I have decided to let you in on how that goes for the next 46 days. What WILL I do with all that free time??
