Breaking away from Facebook

Iv'e decided to break away from Facebook. Initially when I began it was a way to stay in touch with all my MSN spaces friends and my children and grandchildren. Well my children broke away some time ago and the grandchildren rarely get on it any more and when they do it's usually "teenage" stuff. I have been on Facebook since MSN Spaces took their dive and it was pretty fun. I still get to see some of my msn spaces friends too. I have to say though slowly I've become sick of it. During election year there's all those ads on tv and then all those posts on Facebook. People on both sides are passionate for their candidate but I just don't want to see it played out in that forum.. every day. Then there's those that LOVE themselves and every day have a new picture of themselves..arm outstretched in an unatural pose or taking one in the bathroom mirror. I love seeing photos of the ones I love but every day? Really? Lately I had a friend I've had for over 30 years get snotty with me on Facebook, I had just woke up (not a good time to engage with me) and had to take her off my newsfeed and realized "I don't need this drama!"
Lastly I've added to Facebook, extended family, friends that really aren't very friendly or my friend because I didn't want to hurt their feelings and now my life is opened up to EVERYONE! So instead of cutting and unfriending people, because even if I did, they've friended my husband and my children AND my siblings, I still wouldn't be able to rid myself of them... phew.... I'm breaking away from Facebook!
Because I love sharing tidbits, it's my nature, and because I love my true friends I have I'm starting my blog again and ONLY inviting those that I'm loyal to. So if you've gotten my message ... you're one of them! I will leave my Facebook account open so I can check on my children's pages, check on my friends, I may even private message you from time to time but initially I'm done. So that's my beginning post, I hope some of my MSN friends can blog too so I can interact that way but I know many of you just don't have that kind of time.
So on with my blog site and being able to post once in a while without having the intruders!
On a whole other new topic.. my sleep habits have gone whacky. I'm up all night, getting up late, sleeping in weird spurts.. so hopefully can get that under control. I'm starting to feel vampirish!
It's raining here today and probably all week. Halloween will be soggy :(
I went to bed at 11 awoke at 3am.. finally got back to sleep and woke up at noon. Oh brother! Hubby must have gone hunting cuz he's not here.
So anyway for now that's all my news. I'll get back in to the swing of this blogging again and my posts will be more uplifting! So leave me a note if you read this so I can know I'm not talking to the wall. Take care...


  1. Hi Dana I hope it's OK I join you here. I was a little confused who's site it was as it was renamed and hadn't been seen any posts from your old named site I actually forgot who's it was. Then I looked at the URL and saw your name. I so understand about Facebook. There are so many people I would like to block as all they post is links or shares constantly that have nothing to do with what is going on in their life. That is what I am interested in when I go to Facebook. Not their political view or a news story. I can find all that on my own. When I allowed some of my internet friends onto Facebook it was hoping to share with them some of my personal side of my life and see more of theirs. Aside from some of my very longtime blogging friends I personal know everyone on my friends list from high school and long time friends or family members. I don't friend spouse or relatives of people I haven't personal had contact with before. Anyway so nice to see you back here again. I don't blog so often anymore and don't get around to visiting here as much either. But like today something new pops up and had to come check it out. Now get your sleeping habits back together. I have been so good lately. I quit watching TV at 10:30pm then come in as hubby is finished on the computer and go on till 1am. I still get a good nights sleep till 9am. I want to get a tablet, but am worried will I be on it always even when watch TV. Oh the sun just popped out. Better take advantage of it and go rack some leaves. Have a wonderful rest of the week. Hugs Carrie

  2. Thanks Carrie, My break away has been slow going and haven't quite done it yet cuz of grandkids. I also am not sure whether I even want to blog again. Sigh.. I am the confused.. haha I had to get rid of some run away circles on my google + only because in one circle there was over 600 and I didn't know any of them! I still see where others that I don't know are adding me. It's a run away train. I wish there was a way I could wipe it clean and start with a new name or something but it won't let me! lol.. so business as usual and will try to eventually break from my internet obsession. Recently I've opened my Skype every Sunday for my kids and grandkids to contact me. That has been the best! Talked to almost all of them today and one grandson twice! As long as I can do that I'd be happy. I love the posts from my old blogger friends too. I can't miss out on that .. so you see my dilema! haha Love the photos of you and yours, I look forward to those. I'm not sure how to find the others on here but I'll get it all worked out. Thanks for the shout out and you have a great week yourself!
