Have you ever had those days when you just didn't feel as if you made the amount of money you wanted to make, or found the amount of recipes you wanted to find, or printed the amount of things you wanted to print, or etc? I am feeling that way to day. I have been procrastinating in a sense while looking up things for crochet so that I can learn how to make things and so that I can find patterns for inspiration. I have also been offline playing video games or watching t.v. . My fiance and I still need to read but we can't find the book we want so therefore we're stuck as we don't want to finish and have to reread again. Anyway, I've been neglecting mylot off and on and haven't really been doing nearly as much as I want to so therefore I have decided that I won't leave the computer until I am happy with my post count, and that might take awhile depending on when someone responds to this discussion and the post count updates. So what have you been neglecting lately and what do you promise yourself your going to keep up on until it's finished or your satisfied?

Baby,I know what you mean about having days where you think you have not done enough and do not want to stop until you are satisfied,and I know we have both been kind of procrastinating whether it be watching television or just laying in the bed cuddling,and I know you want to learn to crochet and I am sure that the more you practice the better you will get,and I am sure when we go see your mom she will be able to help give you techniques and ideas to improve your crocheting,and I know we do want to read,but we can not find the copy of the book we want,and we do not want to have to reread the book,I am starting to go hazy on what the last thing we read was,and I kind of feel I have not done enough either,I love you.

Well baby you have done plenty compared to me, so I don't think you need to worry about your post count, and besides I am trying to catch up with you since you have zoomed off in the post count, and it's hard to believe since typically I post more then you do but seeing as I have been procrastinating you've gotten even more in the lead. I don't regret us cuddling or watching t.v., but I do wish that I hadn't just gotten off from searching for patterns and played a game. Instead I should have stayed on and mylotted. Oh well, but yes I know that my mom can teach me how to crochet as she is really good at it, but I hope that I can get good at it fast so that I can make things for us, for the girls who are going to be the matron of honor and bridesmaids, and also things to sell. I think that it would be a real fun thing to do while making money and relieving stress. I love you too baby!

honestly speaking, i don't really have anything that i want to keep up on as i always try not to procrastinate and do things on a daily basis... if there is one thing that i want to improve is my relationship with God and my hubby... i had been trying so hard these past few months to change myself to be more patient with my hubby and accept his shortcomings to avoid more arguments and confrontations... also, with my relationship with God, i also want to improve it to have a deeper and closer relationship with Him... these are the two things that i want to work on at the moment and i won't be satisfied until i die (i think so)... take care and have a nice day...

Sometimes there are things that you always do, like a chore.. even that can be put off but if you get into a routine then you won't put it off unless your out and time flies by or something else happens that causes you to not do your chore on time. I can understand that your not a procrasinator, and I think that the relationships you want to strengthen are more of a task that you want to do, more then one that you have to do. I appreciate the response!

I agree with you but for me it is the revere. My wife just hates my laptop and says it has taken her place. She calls it my first wife and says that she has been relegated to seocnd place. The moment I switch on my laptop, i can see he frown. The moment I switch it off she is happy and smiles. I sometimes wonder if it is worth sitting with the laptop at all? If it makes her unhappy and makes her feel neglected what is the point in spending so much time with the laptop?

My fiance was very sad when I would go into the bedroom (not our bedroom but another bedroom where the computer is) and use the computer even though he knew it was to make us money. We bought a laptop so that I or he could use it and he could also use the computer so therefore we would not have to spend time away from each other. He's actually a member of mylot. I am sorry that your wife feels a bit unhappy but I hope that you can explain to her that your just trying to make a little extra money for spending. Good Luck to you in your earnings!

I'm right now present on myLot because Yuwie is down and well I would sooner target what I would have to do on Yuwie, like for example sending the same comment for all my friend. I have a comment blog and when I see some new interesting kind of comments on a social network I would envisage to add such a section in my blog, http://comment-cat.blogspot.com/ But well, I like to do it for fun and I feel like neglecting a lot lately is to play music, wish I could have my computers just broken down, so I would move my little butts a bit more. Alright, I'm just kidding, I love my computers and friends inside, I should find balance some way

Some of those comments are really pretty and I like the last one on that page with the girl on the bike with an umbrella, her dress looks like the 50's and the style of her hair as well. I have heard good and bad things from yuwie but either way I don't trust the site with personal info so I just as soon stay here. Music is a very soothing and calming thing, why can you not play some of your favorite songs on your computer!

I've been neglecting my school work. I'm hitting the point where I'm starting to feel pretty stressed out. I see the list of things that are piling up. I'm looking at all the things I have to accomplish and I'm thinking about how long those things are going to take me; but I still can't get up the gumption to actually start on any of them. Sometimes I feel like I work best under pressure. Sometimes I feel like when I'm under pressure, I'm able to work the best and the hardest to get things done. I may freak out a bit, but I do seem to be able to get work done. I am planning however, and I will try my hardest to do it, to work a lot this weekend to get a lot of this stuff started and out of the way. I'm spending Halloween at home this year so I'm hoping that I will be able to at least cross one or two more things off my list before Monday starts again. And, because I have so many things piling up, I haven't spent as much time online at Mylot or whatever making extra money. It's frustrating and all but I can't do much about it. I just have to do all the bigger things that matter first and then I can deal with everything else.

You say that sometimes you feel like you work best under pressure, I hope that there aren't times that you think working under pressure will help and then it doesn't. I can understand leaving online earning on the back burner for now because school is more important and the load of assignments you say you need to do won't get easier by procrastinating. Well I hope you have a good time and try not to work too hard but don't let your mind wander either!

yea I often stay on later then I intend to, but I don't often complain because I'm making money do it, as long as your making money and having fun there's no reason to complain. Your new here or semi new I assume by your post count so don't worry about not being here as often as you wish. You will get addicted to the site and not want to leave, atleast I know I did when I first started mylotting!

Well being on mylot can be addicting at first, but then you level out and don't need to be on mylot as much. I appreciate the response.

There is not a day that goes by now that I don't open my laptop and go online. It's almost like another appendage. I've been on myLot regularly too so I don't feel that I have to make so many posts in a day. What have I not been doing instead? I have been wanting to reorganize my closet and chest of drawers and have most of my winter clothes out instead of my summery ones. I guess it's more of a need as it's getting colder and rainy over here.

We switched our clothes a while back now. I know how it is to get distracted, as you can see I didn't meet the 2900 because I got distracted. Then the next day instead of making it up I played cards, since then it's been on again off again cards and mylotting. Maybe we'll both get around to doing the things we know very well we need to do. Besides mylotting, I need organize and make a few lists.

Well I know how you feel when you say your neglecting your t.v. to mylot. I never watched much t.v. anyway, but I do not watch nearly as much now that I mylot, well I can't say that all the time but most of the time I am on here more then there. Or reading, as I love to read too. Anyway, I appreciate the response.

[i]Hello SomeCowgirl, For the past 2 months, I am neglecting my notifications here...I am motivating myself to clear it off and even just be consistent to my previous target like 45-50 responses each day but I don't have the same energy and motivation now! I will end up watching series, news, videos and it will be great if I can work out for 5-10 responses each day! I am still trying to get back my energy, Some of my friends leave mylot and it makes me feel sad! ANyway, I am trying today to clear even half of my emails but I do know![/i]

Hey Che, well as you can see I got distracted and didn't meet my goal the day before yesterday. Then yesterday I spent it with friends, so therefore no money making at all. I hope you can get motivated to finish up with your notifications! I appreciate the response!
