I am going to give Facebook one more try - but if it turns into a problem again, I will delete my account. This time I just deactivated it, which leaves everything "as is" but invisible. If it takes over my time/life, though, it will have to go for good.
After a month, though, why come back? Well, the easiest and most obvious answer is that I miss people. I do manage to stay in touch with most of my friends pretty regularly, but I was missing some of the social interaction. We'll just have to see, though. If it gets stressful, we'll know the experiment failed.
I have been enjoying keeping this blog updated, so hopefully that will continue.
It was interesting (at least to me) that the day I decided to go back to Facebook (Thursday) was also the day our Hughesnet satellite went out. It took me a day to accept it, and then get the dial up set back up. So, for now (at least until Monday, according to the helpful Hughesnet rep!) I am back on dial up. Which means it takes so long for anything to load that I can get my laundry folded while I wait!
Today, besides playing on the computer, I am attempting to clean out the toy area in our family room. A major disaster, and probably a poor choice of way to spend my day! But, it needs to be done, and no time like the present.
So, break is over - back to work!
