    My house is a mess, I have errands that need to be run, there are a million other things that I need to be doing (I could be working on my quilt).....and it's all your fault!!! But every time I walk by my computer I just have to stop & check the Quilting Board! I guess I'm afraid I'm going to miss something. I'm going to have to unplug the laptop & hide it from myself just so I can get some things done around here!

    Have the same problem AND I am at work! Shh...don't tell my boss. I also have to constantly check in from home. Is there a QBA (Quilting Board Anonymous)? :roll:

    Here is what you do. Go buy an iPod and WiFi so when you are home cooking, cleaning or doing laundry you can check in and keep doing what you are doing. It may take a little longer to get things done but you can feed your addiction just like me. Lol

    It is so true. No matter how often I check in, every day I see something and wonder "how on earth did I manage to miss that?"

    So true. I come on here to check and hours later, here I sit. So sad but sooooooooo fun. So this is what addiction feels like.

    You are not alone! Sometimes I don't even go fifteen minutes without feeling like I must see if there's anything new! And I have completely shut down my computer before to try and stop myself from checking!

    I had gotten so obsessed with the board that I wasn't getting anything done around the house including quilting. Resolutions: I found a friend on the board that only lives two blocks away and we are scheduling one day a week for sewing days. I found a website that has really helped me get organized so my house is getting cleaner by the day. Flylady.com

    I get flylady emails every day. And I delete them every day.... bad me. No wonder my house is a mess. Plus my obsession with the classifieds - If I would sew for half the time I spent here, I'd be getting a lot accomplished!

    I'm on here more than working in and out of the house.

    I'm afraid I'll miss something.

    I should throw the computer out and get something done.

    I Just went and bought about 200 different bulbs to plant for spring. Maybe I could take my computer out with me and plant one bulb at a time and check this out in between planting each bulb.

    I love coming to this board because I feel I have friends that will make me laugh, teach me things I didn't know and pray for them if they have a need.

    I don't get much of anything done, but my days arent nearly as boring. I love every minute I spend on here, and feel like I have gained friends galore.

    Oh, I am so relieved to hear that other people have the same addiction as I.....and not a bad one at that. Just takes up more of my time than it should, but I so enjoy seeing other people's projects and learning new tips. Hard to stay away, and don't plan to change things at this point☺

    found the board while at work, and now have many more projects I want to do and have to be at work instead of at home quilting. Can some one write me an excuse to turn in to my boss???
