Day 8 Photo Challenge: A Bad Habit

If you remember, I’m slowly working my way through this 30 day photo challenge here, doing them spread out over time but eventually I’ll have done it for 30 full days. Today’s picture is day 8, and it said a bad habit. It was hard to take a picture of this, but here goes.

Facebook. It’s probably my worst habit. Not that I think Facebook is bad in and of itself (though it can be a lot of drama), but I have a hard time not spending way too much time on Facebook. In college, I once gave it up for some period of time (I can’t remember if it was two weeks or three weeks) and that was an interesting eye opening experience for me, but I don’t know if I could do the same now. I’m in a different stage of my life. There, I was still very much connected to a lot of other people in my day to day life. I was on campus five days a week, sometimes worked on Saturdays there too, and at church on Sundays. It’s a very big difference to now being a stay at home mom. I love being a stay at home mom – it’s absolutely amazing, watching these little guys grow up. But it does limit my interactions with other adults. I try to get out at least once a week not including church, but we also only have one car so sometimes that’s limited too. Yesterday we were invited to a super bowl party, but the weather was bad so we opted to stay home. (They didn’t plow our street until sometime well after dark, we were eating dinner when the plows came through). But many times when I do get out, the places we go are kid-centric and I’m also awkward at striking up conversations with adults I don’t know, but at least it does good to get out. I don’t mean to go out, but I was going to say this ties back into the Facebook thing because it is a place where I can talk to other grown-ups, other moms especially, and that’s probably why I spend so much time there. So Facebook, it’s a love-hate relationship for me, what about you? Is Facebook a bad habit for you too, or is your bad habit something else?
