Facebook Fast

Ah, Facebook.  You started as a fun way to keep in touch with friends, and as a way for far-away family to watch the kids grow.  Who knew you'd be such a time-waste?  Of course, for those Facebook users with self-control, this isn't a problem.  For me, Facebook is a bit too easy access.  The kids need my full attention, and how can I offer that to them when Susie is making tacos for lunch, and Johnny is going on vacay @ the beach? 

I've quit Facebook before, but it didn't last.  Come to find out that all you need to do is log in, and ta-da!  You're back on.  Too easy.  So I came up with a solution.

Richard changed my password and replaced it with a top-secret one.  I can no longer log in without his help and approval.  So far I've been on Facebook a lot less, and frankly, it's been a blessing.  I'm getting more done around the house, I'm not feeling the pressure to "like" everything and anything, and the kids aren't having to compete with the computer for my attention. 

I have big plans for the immediate future now that I have all this time on my hands:  clean the oven.  re-organize the pantry.  wash out the fridge.  Ah!  Yes!  Take that Facebook!
