do you think you spend too much time on the computer?

I question myself on this a lot, I try hard to make sure there is balance....but I admit I'm addicted.

  • Yes, if it isolates you from othr people that is not a good thing.

  • Yes! I'm even worse about it on days when my husband is home or the grandparents are visiting and they're busy playing with my son. I think when it's just me I do a better job of balancing everything and don't obsess with computer stuff as much. It doesn't help that the computer is very easily accessible while I doing other stuff around the house either--I always seem to find a few minutes here and there.

  • I spend too much time on Cafemom, but it's really my only time-killer. Any other sites I visit regularly I can make pretty quick work of. Here, I just keep going...and going...and going...

  • Absolutely, I do.
    I sit at a computer all day 5 days a week for work. Then after the kids go to bed I get on the computer and do homework for about another 3 hours. Although usually I would get so much more done if I wasn't surfing CafeMom.

  • yes, but my excuse is that Im working...LOL! I actually work from home on my computer for the most part...its CafeMom that I have to watch myself on. I think I suppose to answer every question, even when I dont know the answer... LOL! But its fun I use it at my mental break. Does CafeMom give an award to CM Hogg (ya know, for the ones (ah hum...ME) that wont quite and go tend to the home...LOL) I think I need one of those..
