Never thought I'd be saying this but...........

today I deactivated my facebook account, Wow I still don't believe I did it, but I did. Why? when I first joined facebook it was a fun way to keep up with friends and family and see what they were up to, but lately all the people I'd like to keep up with are dropping quietly into the background, and all I ever seem to see posted is people complaining about one thing or another, or talking about how drunk they were going to get/or had got that day, ok fair enough use facebook to vent every now and then if you need to blow of steam, heck I've done it myself from time to time, but lately that seems to be all anyone ever posts and it really was starting to get me down. I'm beginning to think I'm the only person who doesn't go out and get drunk every weekend. I've had a bit of a bad week this week, 3 out of 4 kids have been down sick, the youngest of those has been very upset and crying/screaming a lot, I've been getting very little sleep and could see myself starting to become one of those facebook whingers which I really don't want to become, so for the first time since signing up 3 years ago I decided to seperate myself from facebook completely, and the only way I could think to do that was to deactivate my account so I did. No doubt it will only be a temporary move and I'll be back, but for now I'm taking a break and taking a long hard think about who's on my friends list and think it will be getting a major cull upon my return as honestly I don't think I even know half the people on there. Oh and one last thing, as lovely as some of the status are that get copy and pasted are, after the 50 millionth time you've read something that year it really does loose it's original intent.
