Addicted

Hi. My name is Sarah. I am 24. And I am a Facebook Addict.
But..... the good news and reason for this post is to tell you that I have not been on facebook since Wednesday. Friends, this is a miracle and probably the longest I have been facebook free since I entered the facebook world about 4 years ago. I am bound and determined to not have the uncontrollable urge to get on there 3 times a day (minimum) and look at every updated profile, which then usually leads to more profiles, to more profiles.... you get the picture. I am hoping to learn to use my time more wisely. I am hoping to not being doing 4 days of Bible study on Sunday before Monday night Bible study. I am hoping that when Ivy can talk more she doesn't say "Geeezzz, Mom, can't you get off that thing?" And I am hoping not to recognize people out and about because I have seen them on facebook. So seriously, I am making light of this situation but it is sort of a problem. I am enjoying my freedom from facebook so for now the hiatus will continue. Wish me luck!
PS~ If you are trying to get ahold of me through facebook, maybe you should try a blog comment or email instead? Haha! Please don't unfriend me in real life just because you are feeling a little ignored on facebook.

  1. I am addicted too. I joined about a year ago. I blame it all on Brooke:) She told me to join..ha ha. I should really spend less time on it too.

    Funny thing is I recognized you at Jalapenos that day..from Facebook!!!

  2. I struggle with the same exact thing and I had been consciously only checking it one-maybe two times max in the summer but seems these past few months-I am on at least 3-4 times a day..I do need to spend my time more productively! Thanks for the reminder :-)

  3. Oh tell me about it. I love being home with girls but you do get caught in the "being unproductive with my time" trap. I am glad that you have come to terms with your addiction:) Not sure if I am ready to admit I have a problem!

  4. Between the blog, facebook, myspace.... there are just too many things! I like blogs way better than anything else. I am happy you are keeping up with the blog still!

    wouldn't it be easier if everyone just checked the blog for updates???? I wish more did.
