Day Two of Twitter/Facebook Fasting

So the sweats have subsided, but I'm still a little shaky. I ate a giant bowl of ice cream last night to make me feel better, it helped.

The husband thinks I'm insane. Well that's obvious! He thinks I should have given up the Crackberry instead. HA! Like that could ever happen!!!

I told him I think he should give up beer!

He totally shut up after that suggestion.

So I know everyone thinks I am crazy and all, but I am going to take a moment to explain.

I've given up twitter and facebook for lent because it is my way to force myself off the computer and spend more time with my family.

So far .... Hold on, gotta tell my son to stir the mac and cheese for me ... What?!?! ... Ok so as I was saying, so far I've been able to read half of Shiver while my boys read their books, go to Church last night, and super SUPER clean my house.

Um...now what do I do? I think I'm supposed to play a board game or something, right?

So 38 days left. Let me just tell ya, you guys are going to be feeling the blog love this month! I have to keep in touch somehow ya know!

Ok so who is going to tweet my link today? Think of me while you do it, I'm going to totally live vicariously through that one tweet....sigh...

And then when you are done head over to Shannon's Blog for your chance to win the Wake Trilogy!!!!

I admire your strength. I gave up Facebook for about a week, but then I started blogging like crazy. I wish, really wish, I could give up checking my iPhone constantly for emails, etc. I drive myself nuts!

Southern Princess I LOVE you being my messenger :) It makes me feel all sorts of fluffy!

Thanks Lisa, it's been difficult, but I really think I can do this!

At least the count down will make for fun blogging! Right???

Jessica said...

Yep, a board game is what comes next. :-)

I love that you are getting to spend time with your fam and reading SHIVER, I love that one! You aren't 'insane', just...well, what do we call ourselves? Do we get to pick the label?

Glynis said...

Good for you! Keep it up. A board game is a great idea.

Karen said...

lol...go, Marybeth, go!!

I still think Castle would have been a better option. Then again . . . Marybeth - Castle = Not A Good Combination. Ha! The only good thing about your absence from Facebook . . . I don't have to worry about you trumping my BB score. Woo-hoo! See, there is a positive to every situation. : )

Just as I"m getting the hang of Twitter, you're leaving me! I'll miss ya!

You are a brave girl. I "fasted" from the computer on Sundays for about 3 months last year (which meant, no writing, blogging, email checking, etc.) It nearly made me crazy, but I think I need to do it again.

ROFL at the mac & cheese comment. *snarf*

Well, good for you Marybeth. You're a better woman than me. I'll be enjoying the blog-love tho!

Foursons said...

You are a brave, brave woman.
