OK, so I checked Facebook twice since writing this sentence. (Let me explain something to my fellow Facebook hater friends: I originally opened a Facebook account because I knew it would give me a chance to stay in touch with old girlfriends. I moved a few times in my life, so I have friends across the country. Now I find the social media tool as a fun way to distract me from things I’m procrastinating about.) Because I work from home, I get to be my own boss. This can be a good thing and a bad thing. I’m actually a pretty self-motivated person, but I can also over-eat myself into a coma, put off work until 3 a.m., procrastinate about projects rather than tackle them right away and aggravate my husband with my annoying habits because he also works from home. I’m either off Facebook for two months straight or I find myself checking it three times a day. Lately, I think I need to go on a Facebook diet. If you have any advice, please share.
I woke up in the middle of the night and found myself checking Facebook for no reason. An hour later, I was like, “Crap, Sarah will be up in 45 minutes!” It’s like a brain and time vacuum….but I also love it. 😉

Facebook is my only way at keeping up with friends lately. It is not optimal, as at some point I will have to break down, section off a 5 hour window of time on a Saturday and actually have a live conversation with my friends. But then I have to hire a babysitter for those 5 hours, book her out weeks in advance and pay her $15/hour. Too much work. So bottom line, do what works best for you. Seriously we are all working moms just trying to hold out head above water.
increase to checking FB 12 times a day and call me in the morning.
