I'm all caught up!

A few weeks ago, or a month ago, whichever, I posted about being behind. I was behind in everything. I had to catch up on survey sites, Gather notifications, and mylot notifications. Finally, tonight I'm up to date! Is there anything that you have now caught up on? Maybe it was a project that was due and you had put it off, but now you finished it? Hey, it can even be laundry. I know I'm always happy when I catch up on the laundry after having so much of it to do (I do my parent's laundry too, to help them out, thus I get behind easily).

Glad to hear you're all up to date on everything Ah alas I'm not...I'm still way behind on everything...replying/responding to my own discussions or making replies to my friends--I've had some interruptions in my life that have distracted me...heck I might make a discussion about the FUN I've been having...NOT

I get more behind at Gather than here at Mylot. I actually have to go searching for discussions to answer when I am wanting to get some extra points. I never feel really caught up on anything, because my mind goes ninety to nothing down the road.

I have a harder time going through Gather's e-mails because mylot interests me way more.

Yes.....I finished my big card order and now I can concentrate on making things for my next craft sale which is in three weeks. I love Christmas so this holiday sale is right up my alley!

I find that the only time I get behind is when others off-line require my help. Being the helpful person that I am I am always obliged to help others that I forget my only source of income and well then it drives me nuts. I begin to hyperventilate when I see how behind I get and so I try to catch up way too much and then I begin to stress and panic. So I know the feeling quite well. I try to tell others how busy I get especially when they are not volunteering for my gas to get them to and from but sometimes people are simply so inconsiderate that they ask anyways. Ugh...

I'll never be caught up on laundry.. that's just a fact of life with 5 kids. There may be times when my laundry pile is empty.. but there's always more piles around the house that haven't made it to the laundry room yet. There's also always some bedding that needs washing that I put off in order to do clothing. I've been falling behind on everything lately due to laziness. I didn't even go to the gym for over a week! Last week I didn't go at all, the week before that I only went on Friday. Shame on me! Yes I do believe I'm gaining some weight back, and I'm so mad at myself for that.. though it hasn't been too much thankfully. I kicked myself in the butt and got to the gym yesterday.. and plan on going again today. Hopefully I can catch up on my workouts soon!

It’s a good feeling to be up to date! I usually start the week with a mountain of things to do online and offline and, if all goes well, I am caught up with household chores by Wednesday and then I can work on my online stuff. In a perfect world that would work very well but sadly, life happens and my plans have the tendency to go haywire and I’m back to square one! I used to stress a bit but now I live for the moment and avoid looking at the bigger picture if I can. Good on you for being all caught up, well done!

I was behind with myLot since didn't get to open it the whole weekend till Monday morning. I was out of town and didn't wanna use my phone to catch up because the screen's just too small for me. I couldn't keep track of all my friends posts and comments until now. Lately I've just been very busy.

I get behind on all those sites also. I hate laundry, it seems it piles up faster than I can do it. I am glad that you are back up to date, you are doing better than I am.

I don't know if this is what you'd call "catching up" but I have my school on a schedule now where I can get more done, including being here. Today I baked my pumpkin and looking forward to making apple and dumplings soon. Plus I toasted the seeds today for a great snack..And I am slowly getting my yard winterized and hope it is done before the extreme cold sets in..:)

That's very disappointing. It's hard to believe in this day and age that it would take so long.

The only thing I am behind on is giving the best response for my discussions. I don't ever give it right away, as we are to wait at least a week, but I wait months to do so. I just get to doing other things and just don't get it done. It really isn't a big deal, as I will get to them. I just have to get motivated as well. Good luck to you and happy mylotting.

I wait two weeks before giving a best response. I like it when people wait at least a week. It gives a person a chance to catch up. Because sometimes I get really behind in answering other people's discussions.

I always seemed to be behind on everything, so I used a "to-do" software package. But I would add tasks like, "Finish landscaping the yard". Well, I never caught up. So I changed my tasks. Now they read, "Pick up dog doodoo in the NE corner of the yard", "Pick up dog doodoo in the NW corner of the yard"..."Trim grass under the tree/bushes in the SW corner of the yard", "Put clothes in the washer and start it", "Put wet clothes in the dryer and start it", "Hang dry clothes"... My tasks are well over a 1000, but when you can accomplish 20 in a day, it makes you feel so much better. (I still haven't finished the original "Finish landscaping the yard", but I feel better about what I have finished...)

I can't think of anything I'm behind on right now. It seems like I'm always behind on something, though, lol! Isn't it a good feeling when you're caught up? I know it is for me.

Personally, it would take me forever to get caught up with all my myLot friend notifications. There are many times I do take the time going thru my Email trying to get caught up, but there is never enough time in a day. Especially since this last week I was on vacation, and just returned home.

Yes, I'm finally caught up for the moment, but not for long. At least I can come here and see everyone for a while, lol! I did some more holiday dollhouse candles, and more of the pet stairs...they're so much fun. I also went food shopping finally and got that over with too, in the rain today, yuk. I always seem to pick the wrong day to go. Yesterday went to a few craft stores with my friend and found out they don't sell my mini cats and dogs anymore. That's not good for me so I am kind of worried. I still have to do laundry but don't consider it behind YET, haha.
