Some are as far back as July!! I have 6 pages of discussions BUT I will get to them and when I do, please excuse my tardiness!! LOL Have you ever been so far behind in your discussions? I have a few times but only once was I able to get caught up.

That's alright Cats, anyway you have a valid reason, sometimes we really have to focus on something diferrent, something important to us as well. I'll be far behind in my discussions once I'll be admitted at the hospital for surgery, maybe. Just hope could come back soon.

Surgery? My goodness, what for? If you don't mind my asking that is. What ever the reason, I hope it's not serious and that you get right back on your feet again soon!! I'm going to miss you!!

I have myoma Cats cyst at the cervix, it has increased in size that need to be removed as I bled for 3 days. Just waiting for the funds to be completed. At first I fear operation but, so many support of prayers and positive energy sent by friends, some from mylot and friends from other sites as well. Am just asking my friends to say a little prayer for me, maybe they're doing more, that am feeling fine already the past two weeks, I felt am healed and wonderful if one day the doctor will say operation not needed anymore. God is good. Still Cats I do appreciate a little prayer from you. (smile) Touched to hear you'll miss me. Thanks Cats. God bless.

I hope you get caught up soon, but I know how hard it is to catch up. When my son had his surgery, I got so far behind, I just gave up.

I feel like doing just that too Thoroughrob but I promised that I would do this and I hope to keep my promise!! Very rarely do I go back on my promises but this just might have to be one of those times but I'm going to give it my best shot first then decide.

Hey Jason! Welcome to mylot! I hope you enjoy it here!! You are right, it's not good to be addicted to the internet but gosh, the possibilities that are on here! LOL The wide range of information as well as our friends and so on. It's no wonder so many are addicted. But it can be used for a good thing if we want to, which I do!

catsanddogs you have my sympathy as I also am so far behind, 11 months worth as I was gone for 11 months and left a lot of unfinished business but it wasnt as if I had any say in the reason i wasnt on here.we ended up homeless and had to do something to remedy the situation for now. so am slowly getting caught up again. so I will'sure forgive you too.

11 months behind Hatley?! OMG!! I wouldn't even try!! You really ought to get rid of everything and start a new! 11 months is a bit too much to even consider trying to catch up. Really! OUCH!! But I'm sure most of us would agree, delete everything and start a new.

When I had a job, I got behind in my discussions. It was such a chore! But I felt I owed it to my friends who support me here. I admire your resolve!

Hi! Well some of my discussions have been left behind. There are times that I cannot comment back on them anymore. Especially if I have not been logging in for several days and I do feel bad about it. My emails are flooded with my friends discussions and sometimes I am caught up and don't know what to do first, to respond on my friends or to comment back on my discussions. And either way I choose to do first, I am already tired to continue and to other. But recently I am updated with my discussions and I'm glad. Ciao!

That's exactly how it is for me too iskayz. I like to focus on one or the other first and then catch up on the other but it's really hard. Especially when life hands us a bunch of things to do or is eventful like mine is.

I never had such a situation where I was really lagging behind, because I'll be online every day or atleast every alternate days. There are some of my discussions which I've abandoned because I think they are going out of my hand due to increased debates because the topics are in religion. now that I've stopped posting topics in religion & politics. Happy Lotting

I wish I could be on here every day but with life being what it is, which is very busy, I can't be on here every day but still, my friends want to know what's going on with me so I have to start discussions to give the update and then other things happen that need telling and it continues like that. I wish my life wasn't a story to tell but rather laid back and boring, then I wouldn't be so keyed up all the time.

Don’t concern yourself Cats; it happens when you have a life outside of MyLot which the majority of us do! I am here most days and sometimes my husband and daughter get annoyed with me because I am not spending time with them and that is when I have to turn off the computer and be with my family. It is so easy to get behind; even one day away creates tons of emails waiting for an answer. I usually feel guilty if I don’t attend to my friends’ discussions but there are times when it is impossible to get up to date and I have to let some go, it kills me though...

Yup! Yup! I do know what you mean! We do have to live our lives even if that means getting behind further and further with mylot. I don't think I'll make such a promise again, in getting caught up because it's really a lot of work! But I know too that most of you want updates on my going ons so I try to do that at least but I can't always respond to all my responders. I just hope that you and all of them understand this. I'm sure you all do!! Right? :/

You are so right about that twoey! It's suppose to be for fun, not a chore. BTW, congratulations on finally making your blue star!! I had a hand in that.... every star that I see that isn't blue, I'm constantly rating them a positive, especially my friends in hopes to help build them up!! lol Glad to see yours come up!!

Oh dear I would be in the same boat as you if not for my new 'system' I sort my notification emails by subject and delete all but the most recent discussion from my friends. I know I'll never catch up with all so save stressing myself out about not being able to do them all. myLot is for fun with me and I do what I can when I can... Wishing you the best dear but don't worry about me - think I've only posted one discussion in the last 2 or 3 months anyway :)

I know how it is. There have been times when I've fallen behind on whatever it is I'm doing, because LIFE got in the way!!! As long as you got back here, that's just great. It's interesting reading the discussions that you, and the others on here have started, when we get the time to sit down and do so.

You said it right danish! LIFE gets in the way!! lol I liked my life before moving here and then my parents moving closer to us but there again, had they not moved when they did, they wouldn't have all the help that they have because my brothers didn't do anything when they were up there. Well, my oldest brother helped our dad but not mom and my middle brother did nothing. He only came out to visit when he needed something. How sad, eh?

Hi CaD, You are not alone in this 'department'. I am lagging far behind as many of my posts have few pages of comments and can't possibly attend to each and everyone in a short period of time. I do go over and give my comments for the first two pages and when it comes to the third page it becomes repetitive and feel I have lost my steam. I will stop but would come back again after a few days when I get refreshed. But we are in no hurry as long as we acknowledge each and every responses we received.

You said it perfectly! After the third page, it is like repeating yourself over and over but my discussions rarely see the third page so I don't have much of an excuse for not replying. :/ lol I do acknowledge everyone's responses and read them all so at least I do do that. Thanks my friend!
