    well, in the Mountains of Montana where I live, there is snow falling & the skies are dark. great time for staying home in the sewing room. a laptop there would be perfect !

    No you don't, I have a lap top and thought I'd move it to the room I sew. I already have it in the room I cut in, and I'm on here everytime I walk into this room.

    With the FABSHOPHOP,,, I have NOT touched material in two days, and I'm getting the shakes. There just isn't enough time in a day is there. Tomorrow I have to do laundry.....and tomorrow I'll sew........

    I too have a laptop but it ison a desk at the bottom of the stairs so everytime I have to go upstairs I have to stop and see what I have missed on here. Then I wind up staying way to long and am not getting my Xmas projects done. I think I may need help but do I want it? No. I am enjoying this site way too much.

    I have to force myself to stay off here at times so I can get something done myself. I could look at yalls quilts all day long. And of course I've had to buy a few things....My DH usually reminds me when I've stayed here too long. But, I enjoy it soooooo.. I've met some awful nice people here. I'm afraid I'll miss something.

    I was like this when I was new to the Board - really worried me as I was getting little else done.
    Another Board member who's in my Guild assured me that it would wear off.
    She was right, thankfully
    I now sign on in the morning for about an hour and maybe briefly in the evening before shutting the computer down.
    Getting other work done as a result.

    How can one stay away from such conversations each day. When I wake, after the coffee is done and the computer is turned on, I hunt for this update. Once found, I do not leave it until All of you have conversed with me and vice versa. Thanks for the time away from the world and the time to be with friends.

    Me too, me too! I really think, I'll have to set a timer or something, to limit how much time I spend on here reading this and that. I too have many projects in the works and should finish some things up.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one! I enjoy checking in in the mornings and come back again later. I have found so much useful information and just plain fun here!

    Now that you have diagnosed the problem I can begin the cure. Maybe checking in every other or third day.

    I had this same problem but, now I look at the posts when the new ones come out and keep up with updates on occasion with the ones I am really interestested in. I too have so many things to do that are not even started that it is not funny anymore. I am retired why can't I get everything done. I got more done when the kids were home and I had a full time job. I think I work better under pressure.lol

    You said it!! I have to limit myself to 1 hour in the morning and 1 hour in the evening so I miss a lot of what's be said. And I have thought about a laptop - my computer is now 2 floors above my quilting room- but then I would never get any quilting done, and quilting is my passion (I think).

    Pat, you hit the nail on the head! First thing I do is grab a "mug" of coffee, head off to my laptop (sewing room) where it is quiet and dive into the forums - and sometimes am amazed two hours later that I have discovered many more sites that I never knew about before (and must get involved in) - and I have in reality only read three or four original email postings of my inbox! But what fun!!

    I think this topic sure says something about this site and the people who read it and the person or persons who are in charge of keeping everything in working order.

    It's a FANTASTIC site & I also am one who is on several times a day just in case there is a new post that I just have to read or a new pattern or gadget I have to check out and maybe add to my Christmas list.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all
