I work and work until I'm half dead..... Today is day one of no facebook. My gmail account was where all my facebook comments went for me and I really liked all those comments. (janjanmomatgmaildotcom-just in case you want to fill a void) Google reader kind of killed blog comments...oh yeah and word verification. You have to really be committed to leave a blog comment! However, I can't really say that I miss it.
I know that my kids do. They do agree the punishment is a fair one and they are trying to earn it back...and they might. I miss the chores for facebook time arrangement. They will still do chores, they just won't do it so eagerly.
Facebook allows alot of superficial relationships to make superficial contacts. Of course, some of the people are great friends I have lost contact with...but I would rather have a lunch date than a status update. My kids lost the privilege of facebook. I just took a sabbatical. I don't think I am going back. I've always loved blogger more. One online communication outlet is plenty.
