We Haven't "Broken Up..." Facebook and I are Just on a "Break"

Yes, it's true (gasp!), I am taking a break from Facebook.  As you know, I am an avid Facebook poster...mainly because, let's be honest, I think I'm hilarious.  However, it has recently been (quite forcefully and painfully) brought to my attention that some people do NOT find me funny in the least.  In fact, several people lately find my posts hurtful and even mean.  Since it has never been my intention to hurt people, I decided to deactivate my Facebook account for the time being.  I'm sure I will be back on Facebook soon. 

I'm sure some of you are wondering what I'm going to do with so much extra time on my hands.  Well, I have a few ideas...

1)  I'm going to reorganize my scrapbooking materials!  That way, if I ever take a break from cooking or laundry, everything will be good to go and I can scrap to my heart's content.

2)  I will be posting a ridiculous number of pictures to instagram.  Okay, I already post a ridiculous number of pictures...I will be posting an obscene number of pictures to instagram. 

3)  I will have to resort to texting and making phone calls as my main mode of communication, so I'm sure that will take up a chunk of time.  I hope you will all enjoy the random texts you get from me about my day and the funny things my children say and do.  (Here's a head's up:  these are thinly disguised pleas for affirmation...please gush accordingly.  Resistance is futile.)

4) Because I vent/rant frequently on Facebook, I'm going to not only have free time on my hands, but also some aggression to work through.  In order to kill two birds with one stone, I'll be exercising on a daily basis

4)  I am going to save up my tidbits of cleverness, quirky stories, and miserable failures and channel them into more frequent blog posts! 

So, Facebook, I'm sure that I will miss you more than you will miss me, but, until we meet again, may my time be more productive and less offensive!

I will miss your quirky, silly, funny and sometimes mean(JUST KIDDING) Facebook rants. I find you hilarious usually and I'm not sure why people don't utilize Facebook friends settings more efficiently. However, blogger has wonderful features (such as strike through! Exercise is of the devil by way) that are not available to Facebook users! B
