    I think its called "Family" and we are always here for one another...family, Snarky or not
    :P

    Yep...I'm using a timer too...have to otherwise I just wouldn't get anything done. This is such a great place to "escape" to...and I learn some new technique or get ideas every time I log on. 10 more mins. then I have to get some ironing done and the fireplace set...

    Just got home from work. Should be preparing dinner - Oh well there are always leftovers from last night. Just love to see what everyone is up to. I am still amazed at the technology of being able to "talk" to people from all over the world instantly. I love it. It has opened up a whole new world for me. What could be more enjoyable than sharing with people who have a common interest.

    set yourself some limits. i set timers...i decide i'm going to spend 45 minutes on the computer, set a timer when it goes off i shut the computer down. when i'm sewing i set a timer, after 45 minutes of sewing it is time to get up and take a walk, get something to drink, stretch...or even move on to something else. then you can decide...later i will go back and spend another 45 minutes...
    there are days when i spend lots more time here then i should, but some days i just dont feel like sewing or have trouble getting going on something. i still set the timer and make myself take breaks from it...
    sometimes i think timers are my best friend!

    Ditto! I have also put a timer on my computer desk to limit myself to 1 hour but forget to set the timer. Love this site and all the information I can use. It's worth the time. :-D

    I absolutely agree. I thought quilting was my obsession. Now I've found this site, I'm not so sure. I may try the timer idea but I have a feeling it will be a bit like setting the alarm on the weekend - the intention is there!

    I've heard you should always make sure you DRINK when you sew...
    It causes you to HAVE TO GET UP !!!

    School starts today. You can bet I will be checking in at school on the lab computers. :roll:

    I may not post as often, but I will be 'lurking'.

    As a side note, anyone else have callouses (sp) on their elbows from sitting at their cutting table using the laptop? :oops: :roll: I just realized why I have them. How embarassing! :?

    if no one has filled you in...the avatar appeared sometime last year and was such a hit with boarders, we begged the gorilla to stay as is...that's sort of, the story, lol! :lol:
    btw, the picture originally was posted by k3n as one of many she took on a family holiday. She was living in France at the time.
    I think admin may have chosen it, bc he likes a good carrot, just like the mouse likes cheese :XD:

    Thanks for the headsup Mousie. I was just wondering. My daughter's favorite pet at the FW zoo was the Gorilla named Jennifer. And the gorrilla is the king of the Jungle. LOL
