I made it a month. It wasn’t as peaceful as I was hoping because I felt like I was missing things in my family’s lives. I also felt like I was missing a lot of news, and instead of spending time on Facebook I spent it on news sites. I read more. I knitted more. I got more stuff done at home. I also got more steps on my Fitbit. I pretty consistently got 5000 steps, or close to it. I must Facebook sitting down a lot.
So, I’m back on Facebook, but I’m still making it a point to avoid political stuff. It still concerns me greatly, and I worry for the future of our country and my children and grandchildren, but I think I’ve put Facebook in it’s place as a destination for keeping in touch, and not pontificating about political bullshit.
