    Got up this am and started to go toward the computer and and then told myself 'no'. So before I opened this site I have stripped the beds and washed sheets and blankets, made a loaf of bread and had brunch. And now while the sheets are drying, I am going to enjoy my self here. How's that for will power????

    It's more will power than I have, that's for sure. Kudo's to you ... you're setting a good example for us computer junkies.

    WAY TO GO! That is will power. I ran errands that I had been putting off for weeks before I got close to the computer in case it sucked me in again today.

    Ohhh, THAT'S my problem. I get on this darn computer and wander around when I should be working (or quilting!). I think I read more about quilting and if I'd just stop and quilt I'd get a lot more done. SO easy to waste time here, especially on THIS forum where there's such great information. Hey, at least I got ONE load of laundry done today. And one proposal for work.

    Guess it's time for me to walk away now...

    Good for you! Today must be the cleaning day because I told my husband I was not even thinking about doing anything until I had gotten some housecleaning done. So I did laundry, dusting and vacuuming and washed all of the glass tables. My husband helped by vacuuming all of the carpet in the house. Now, I'm enjoying a cup of coffee and reading as many posts here as I want to without feeling guilty.

    Ya know, I forgot I DID put a roast in the crock pot this morning. I think that counts as 'cooking all day'. ha ha

    You have more willpower than I do. This is the first place I come to in the morning and I get back on after dinner every night. I'd get a lot more done too if I could stay off here more, but I'm not complaining, it's the BEST place to be.
