How Many Hours Do You Really Spend on the Internet???

How Many Hours Do You Really Spend on the Internet???



If your anything like me you love the Internet,you love blogging,chatting with people from all around the world and learning what ever new information you can about your interests!!

 Do you have your cell phone set up to alert you with new emails,facebook messages,twitter updates and of course the weather?? I can honestly say "no" to that question only because with Instant Messenger I catch every alert I set. How?? Because I sit on my computer almost allday.lol...there,I said it.I admit it and I'm not proud of it.I sit in the same spot every chance I get and just type away,I read so much that now I have to wear eye glasses to see the computer screen.Look at me now.it's 9:00pm and my eye lids are so heavy but I'm afraid to go to bed and miss something online.I dream about being online and I wake up just to hurry with my household chores to get back online.As soon as I walk my son to his bus stop in the mornings I hurry home to get online.



It's a problem when you know your company or family members come over to visit and your sitting in the same spot week in and week out.I will soon get sores on my butt like some people get the bed sores!!
                                        
Yes,this sounds so funny or crazy depending on your thoughts but it's true and I'm admitting it.Of course you wonder how do I have time online as a mother? Well,I type between stirring the mac n cheese cooking on the stove,I type while the load of laundry is spinning,I type while calling and making family appointments on the phone,especially when I'm on hold with customer service for 20-30 minutes a day! I do find a way to make sure after the kids come home from school the house is clean,dinner is on time,I listen to how their day was,I help with their homework,see to it they take their baths and off to the computer I go once their in bed!! 

My pledge.......this will be hard but I'm willing to cut back from the Internet ATLEAST 2 straight hours per day for the rest of this week until Saturday night 9pm.,,this is my pledge and I want to be held accountable...so I will be honest and let you all know how I do when it's over!!

So,now that your know my confession How Many Hours Do You Really Spend on the Internet???

Come on,be honest and share.Make a pledge with me starting now,today,this second...It can only help!!!

I, too spend so much time on the computer. My oldest son lives in my upstairs apt because he has emotional disabilities as well as CP but he can take care of himself anyway he says I am obsessed with the computer. My daughter says she knows when she comes to get me I won't be in my wheelchair on the porch because I'll be on the computer. My son from Buffalo says every time he gets on his computer to message me I'm already there and my 3rd son says he is going to lock my computer in his dorm so I will find other things to do. But No, I'm not ready to make a pledge yet.
