Admittedly, it has been difficult. I have to make a conscious effort to not check it. Moving the bookmark has helped immensely, because I'm sure that I would have clicked on it mindlessly if it had been up in it's normal place, between Yahoo and Jezebel.
This morning, I Googled "Is there a rehab for facebook addicts?", and this is what I found:
|Look closely. Click if you must.|
Do you see what I see? The top four results are all groups claiming to be rehab groups for Facebook, and they are all ON FACEBOOK. What the heck??? How are you supposed to cure a Facebook addiction by using Facebook? That's like telling an alcoholic to have a few beers to forget about his problem. Not exactly what I was looking for.
Anyway, I have been enjoying my Facebook vacation. I feel like I have so much free time! I started working on family Christmas presents last night, played Wii with the kid today, and even managed to get some laundry done after going over to my cousin's house for a nice visit. You see that? Day TWO, and I'm already up to face-to-face contact with other people! Woohoo!
Here is a list of some of the other things I'm planning to do with my new found free time:
- Write a novel commemorating NaNoWriMo
- Finish scanning in all of my old photos from PDCE (pre-digital camera era).
- Make photo albums on Blurb or Shutterfly, one for each year starting with when the kid was born and one for before he was born.
- Teach the kid to write his name.
This is a very short list. Sorry, I'm tired. I took a Sudafed earlier. I know there must be more. Hm. The point is, I'm feeling good, and very optimistic about my Facebook-free (or -limited) lifestyle. So far, so good!
