It’s time for me to say goodbye. I’m actually quite sad to say it too and it is surprisingly hard to do so. Embarrassingly hard I’m ashamed to say. It’s come to the time when I need to close my Facebook account.
I am one of those people who doesn’t often do things by halves. And I’m not very good at setting my self goals or limits and sticking to them either. So, needless to say, Facebook is a major time black hole for me. I will sit down just to check on something and still be there with my backside glued to the chair an hour (or more) later. It makes me late for things, cranky when I realise how little time I have to get everything done and my time spent doing housework, with my kids and with my husband is all eaten into. 😦 This closure has been on the cards now for a few months and I have managed to limit some parts of it – the games being a huge part that has been shut down for a few months. It was wretchedly and embarrassingly hard to begin with (nothing like cutting out an addiction hey) but now there is only the rare moment I miss them. Well, more that I miss the distraction. And I know that it will be a similar once I close my Facebook account. It also means the Rabid Little Hippy page will close, although I will continue to blog.
Aside from spending time with my family, once we move we will be taking on a lot of extra work, with a lot more chickens, the veggie gardens, possibly goats and lambs in the future and also making many of our own foods like cheese. I’d also love to have a go at making bacon, prosciutto, sausages and salami, all of which will require the time currently spent on Facebook (and probably more time yet again).
So, the statuses are up, the email and phone number collection is underway and I am planning to close the account Monday morning.
