    I find myself spending most of my free time here. When I have limited time as it is. But I can help myself, there is some much information here I love it.

    At least there is something to do when it is just too hot to go outside.

    My computer and my sewing room are both upstairs. I get plenty of exercise going up and down the steps. When I'm up here, I think I should be doing something downstairs. I go down for a few minutes and do something and find myself right back up here. I spend way too much time on the computer and not enough time taking care of all the quilting ideas that are running around in my head.

    I spend way too many hours on this board! I can justify it at this time because I am recuperating from several surgeries, still have one to go.
    But what am I going to do when that's not the case?
    I can just hear me saying..."but you don't know what these withdrawal symtoms are like".
    Actually, there are some things that I could be doing now instead of being on here. I'll start tomorrow, OK? :D

    Oh yes, I have this page pulled up all day long. I try to be a good housewife and clean - but inevitably end up taking little 'breaks' to check the forum. I spend countless hours reloading the pictures forum because I loooove looking at all the pretty pictures.

    I even take quilting breaks (half because I want to check in on the forum and half because my back gets sore). :P

    This place is addicting. I'm at work and I try to come here a lot during the day. If I'm feeling too lazy to do anything when I get home from work I come here and Eleanor Burns' forum. It really takes a lot of self control to walk past my computer and go to my sewing room or laundry room or whatever. I'd get a lot more done if I stayed away......but who can?

    Hmm let me think here!! I get on here about 6 am and off at 8 is that too much time? 8PM that is!! I consider this a college degree that I am getting. It takes a lot of time to go to Quilting School and practice all the lessons on here!!
    There! I think I justified myself!! LOL

    My little one doesn't mind me being on the 'puter, but when I start a project or get involved with anything else, she is constantly interrupting or demanding attention...so I go on QB and dream a lot about all the quilts I will someday make. She does love to go yard-sale-ing and fabric shopping though, so my stash is building all the time :)
