Handcuffed To The Desk I sat down here 2 hours ago to check my e-mail and haven't gotten up! 

My computer to do list is getting out of control!

  1. Check e-mail
  2. Check out pictures of new babies at all of the local hospitals.....I love to look at the baby pics and the names.....my family think I have lost my mind.....they tell my hubby " mom is baby stalking again"
  3. Check bank accounts.....make sure no one is draining my account
  4. Check e-mail
  5. E-mail friends and family.......6 months ago they would get upset b/c I checked my e-mail about once every 2 weeks....now they have me listed as spam!
  6. Go to cafemom
  7. Read recent journals, respond
  8. Check chatter box, respond
  9. Check inbox-respond to or delete
  10. Check invites-look at profiles, if I accept, then I have to send a message
  11. Check for responses to my journals
  12. Check my groups--read anything that looks interesting, respond
  13. Check new groups to see if I want to join 
  14. Post journals if I have anything to say.......and we all know that is ALL THE TIME 
  15. Check my e-mail--did anyone respond yet?
  16. Check grocerygame.com for new coupons
  17. Check flylady.net and find out what I forgot to do again today
  18. Repeat steps 1-18 repeatedly throughout the day!
  19. Get off of computer because my butt is numb and I am embarrassed that I have wasted another whole day doing NOTHING

I hear you... I've been on the computer all day...just took a break to do breakfast dishes... the problem is I only did them because we needed to make room for dinner dishes.

Quoting piratequeen:

I hear you... I've been on the computer all day...just took a break to do breakfast dishes... the problem is I only did them because we needed to make room for dinner dishes.

I stop long enough to load the dishes and fix supper so my kids don't complain.  It is embarrassing when they come home and I am still in my pjs and sitting at the computer.  I will say, we have got to get a more comfortable chair!

LoL!  That's me!  I work at home on my computer and it's so hard not to just visit this site to see what's going on.  I know if I do, that's all the work that will get done for the day.  Nice to know I'm not the only one.

Oh how true!!!  Bad thing is my 16 y/o will be home in about 10 minutes and I will get from him "Mom can I have the computer" and I'll say "thats fine just don't stay on it forever". 

Classic case of do as I say not as I do.  Tongue out
