    Just when I get to the bottom of page, go to top and there are more threads to read. :lol: What to do, What to do. Can't get away from computer. AND, I am going away for seven days, will go thru withdrawal. Let's see 7 days X 1000 messages, I'll never catch up. Isn't this fun.

    Ahhhh you poor thing - I don't know what to tell you to do except enjoy yourself while you're away from us

    sometimes you just have to hit the 'mark all as read' button to keep up

    it can be very consuming---makes it hard to get any sewing done---when i am going to visit the board i set a kitchen timer for 45 minutes- my timer has a 1 minute warning ding---when that one minute warning beeps i have 1 minute to wrap up what i am doing and shutting down the computer- then i go shut off the timer and find something else to do for a while.

    Good plan. I may have to borrow your idea.

    ****i still wonder what i missed.*****
    That last sentence made me laugh - hopefully you're not losing sleep over it.

    I, too, have to set a timer (or time limit ... say a cup of coffee) while visiting here. If I don't 3 hours pass and nothing is done either with the house or sewing :(
