Well, I’ve decided to give shutting down facebook for lent a try. I’m not particularly religious and I’m not 100% sure that I really buy the theory that giving up something for lent is going to help bring my closer to God but I do know that I’ve been spending too much time on the computer and not enough time on things that are more important and now is as good of a time as any to give up an old habit. I do tend to run to facebook to post about things that are great in my life instead of running to my husband (who gets the “oh, I am so exhausted and the kid’s were crazy all day” stories) and I also turn to facebook when things aren’t going well for support in which instances I could probably look inside and towards God for answers as opposed to just hoping for “oh, I’ve been there” type replies from friends of facebook.
So there you have it. If you are looking for me, you can message me on facebook and I will reply (as I am TERRIBLE with e-mail) but besides that I won’t be keeping track of people, posting on walls, updating my status or posting pictures until Easter.
