Online Time

I can count how many years I've had a computer and been online by counting the inches on my butt.

Every night I tell myself I won't log on the next day until I get all my housework or shopping done. Every morning I tell myself I'll log on for a minute or two.. just long enough to enjoy a cup of coffee. (I know you're smiling because you know what comes next.)

The next thing I know hours (and HOURS) have gone by. I manage to rush around and tidy up enough to satisfy myself that the day wasn't a total loss.. but the inches keep adding up. I don't think even weight loss pills will help if I never get any exercise.

That's what I'm like at the weekend.. In the week I have to get to work so I don't even put the computer on in the morning or I would be late everyday!

Yesterday I made myself take a walk before I signed online, I used allen's MP3 player though....so I told him he better get the music uploaded to this computer fast so I'll walk again.
I spend far too much time on this thing.

I hear what you are saying...it's is so easy for time to slip by as you are surfing the net...looking and commenting on blogs...playing games...ah yes....thank god I have my work to keep me in tow....

I'm the same way. Except, lately, I can't find the time or energy to do anything and it is ticking me off.
I'm sorry I haven't visited lately... are you disowning me yet?

I know, I know.
Where does the time go?
Sometimes I feel guilty because I wonder if being online is unproductive???
If you say something and people can learn something from it, then isn't that a good thing?
I better go ask Martha. ;-]
