I've been so busy and tired that I've gotten behind on mylot. I woke up this morning at 6 something and got on and started going thru my messages. I started out with over 200 messages tho a few were things I could just delete. Its now 11 and I've gotten done - finally! Granted, I stopped to talk to the roomie for a few minutes and to go to the bathroom once, but I'm at least back to where I was before I got so behind. Of course, 5 hours at the ER and then waiting for the scrips to be filled didn't help any.

I'm over 200 right now and trying to get through as many as I can. But I need to be off by 10, so I think I will have to table over 100 of them for this evening. ER, are you OK? Scrips? I guess I'd better look through the rest of these to find out. Spend a few days working and see what happens? I hope you feel better. Take care

It was the roomie that had the medical problem this time. I have my own problems, but at least no ER visits myself this April. I've gotten lazy and call the medicine by what the doctors call them now.

A trip to the hospital, what happened? At least you had 5 hours of somesort of rest. I've been slack with Mylot just lately, and have sooo many messages to catch up on. Think I've done maybe 30 tonight, but will have to go to be soon, it being 3am and all here! lol.

The roomie got an abcess, since she can't drive, they have this silly rule about blind people driving, someone had to take her.

Hope she is ok now. Yeah, I have heard the rule of blind people not driving. Something about not being able to see where they are going! I think sometimes they would make better drivers because they have to focus their full attention on getting any where. Really admirable the way they take on the world. I want to breed labradors for the Blind Society here in Australia, but need to get a house that allows us to have pets first.

I have been experience that before due to an exam. Fortunately, I have not been to mylot for a long time. Thus I do not have that much messages to deal with. But myloters are always friendly. Then I do not have to worry about not being accepted. I am wondering if there is any way in mylot allowing us to tell my friends or other myloters that I am away for somedays except posting a discussion. I think that would be more convenient to us all. I suppose I have leave for some days for another exam soon.

you can post a discussion, or you can just turn off your notifications so you don't get flooded with notifications.

I doubt I'm famous, I've been here over a year now, so I've had plenty of time to post comments and, yes, even start a few conversations.

Well, hope you are feeling better. I know I have to use this site sometimes as an outlet, when I am feeling really stressed, or like the last 4 days... not feeling well at all. I find this place is a Great place to come and talk about life in general, and maybe even offer a little help and hope to others out there around us.

Happily it wasn't me that had the problem this time, it was the roomie. I didn't want to drive home with the cost of gas so high and since I knew they wouldn't admit her, I just waited.

i can understand what you are saying... i got so behind in mylot activities on some days as well and i don't know how to catch up... so i usually just left it and do the most that i can... i don't want to stress myself too much here... life is hard and stressful enough without having to add mylot... :-) i just try to enjoy myself and have fun here... take care and have fun here...

When I was out of town last year I turned off the notifications of my most prolific posters and when I came back, I tried to do about 50 old ones as well as all the new ones each day.

Yeah, soaps, cricket, wrestling, I know NOTHING (like Sgt. Schultz on Hogan's Heros.) I don't feel bad about it, actually, it means I can just guiltlessly delete it and that's one less to worry about. I seldom have a chance to sit down and do that much work at one time, I'm actually amazed that I was allowed to do it.

Glad to see that you are back. I am very behind with Mylot also. I have 71 pages of Mylot emails to go through and respond to. I have been getting through about 4 or 5 pages each day. I like to have alot of discussions because alot of them get deleted because I have no clue what to respond with. I will catch up eventually. Good luck.

I agree, steph, a lot do get deleted because they are either, look - new money making site, or some subject I don't know anything about like Asian boy bands. That doesn't mean the the poster doesn't sometimes have something good to post.

I hear ya, cleaning is one of those mind numbing jobs, probably why women in the old days didn't do great intellectual things because after a day of cooking, cleaning and child rearing there was no room left for deep thought. Only the upper class women with help could do that.

my lot should be what you do in your spare time anyway. I do mylot all the time because I don't have a life lol. But tomorrow I am actually going out and I will be gone all day and I am looking forward to it. Mylot can wait.

I do view it as something to do in my spare time, but I hate to see all those emails in my inbox. I'm not a good enough person to go looking thru my friend's to see what they are up to. That's why I hate it when mylot's notifications are down.

I am behind too and haventtime yet to catch upbut I will everyoone just give me some time. I have been suffering with a muscle spasm in the center of my back and its sort of dampened my speed at doing any typing by half and I wasn't all that fast to start out with and that is for sure.

Yikes, I'm guessing you've been to the doctor! I've only had short term muscle cramps and those can be quite debilitating, can't even immagine what an ongoing spasm must be like.

Please do not remind me, I too am way behind on myLot, I just do not know how it happened, one minute I was fine and keeping up with everything nicely next minute, boom, everything just went pear shaped. But at least you have caught up again for now, it is great once you are all caught up, but then it does not take much to get behind again!!

Tell me about it! I came back from a nap and it was back at 70 messages - but over half of them were actually notifications from Freecycle. None of them were of interest for me - so I just deleted them. Shame, I like Freecycle. If you are wondering what Freecycle is, here's a link: http://www.freecycle.org/

Tomorrow it might be even more hard as I'm planning to start a few which I have been not doing all these days of late. Take care and don't forget to rest yourself, health is as important as friends are. Good day!

Don't feel bad. I have had some personal problems at home and worked 5 in a row this week. Its been a rough week and I am VERY behind in my responses. On several occassions I have apologized for being behind on this site and I have always received alot of support. Don't worry too much about it, just do the best you can as we all do.

I know, it too me much longer to get caught up from being out of town for a week, but I had to come back and do all the things I hadn't done at home as well as get caught up. At least I wasn't behind there - well, the dishes need doing....

Ugh! I hate going to the ER for that very reason. I always take a book with me or a few magazines knowing I'll have at least a 3hr. wait just to be seen. Glad to hear your home finally and hope you don't have to go back. At least not for a long time.

Happily it wasn't me this time, it was the roommate. She had an abcess she couldn't tollerate until Monday. They lanced it. She'll go to the doctor on Monday and they well take out the packing and do something else.

That's alot of messages! The most I have ever had was two. I'm sure you are happy to be through with them. Five hours at the ER is standard around here, which is why I don't like going. I hope everything is okay!

Yeah, the 4 hours at the ER wasn't really that strange, but I didn't want to drive home with the cost of gas since we knew the roomie wouldn't be admitted. And doing all that mail in about 4 hours I thought was pretty good since I had been saving some because I wanted to reply to them and hadn't had time.

Hey, welcome back to Mylott. Yeah, I know what you mean about MyLott. Me, I go through all sorts of phases. Was very keen and active. Then I went on a long break from the site. Now I'm back again. It's a case of trying to get as much out of it as I can during certain seasons when I'm casually surfing.

I use this as an outlet, I can talk about things besides cats, in fact, I often cross post my discussions here with my cat friends. I just enjoy conversing with people but I don't like noisy, smoky bars so here I can do it without the drunks...
