I'd like to blame myLot for my inactivity today, my failing to do all the things I'd intended around the house. This place and you peole here are addictive and I've spent far more time here than intended. Maybe I could even blame the weather - it's meant to be Spring here and my planned activities were mostly outdoors - but the weather isn't that great today. However, I'm a big girl now. I take responsibility for my own actions. Consequently I know the only person I can blame for today's lethargy is myself. Bother! I need to give myself a good talking to, again. And grab another cup of coffee.

I would love to blame humm, wait, no one would believe me anyway. I was with my sister most of the day, but I hit the computer instead of the dishes when I got home. Guess I better set a time so I don't lose track and spend too much time here.

It's definitely reassuring to know I'm not the only one!

It really is hard to pull myself away from here, as i end up spending a lot of time in here as well. Mylot and the people in here will do that though, but that is okay, as i really like being here, and enjoy interacting with others. I do have laundry to fold up and put away, so I will have to eventually tear myself away from here.

I have a day ahead of me today where I'm going to need to be more disciplined. The easiest way is, after a short time here now, I won't be back until tonight.

@valmnz I am going to try to do as much as I can in here, while here, as I do take breaks to refresh my mind. I would much rather be here though.

Addictive indeed. I should be preparing lunch at the moment but always say to myself it is still early, it will be just me who will eat. I can't just put my phone down and stop for a while :))

When I'm like that I say to myself well, I'm getting older, it doesn't matter. Then I remember I do have other responsibilities.

Somedays are like that. I seem to go in circles and get nothing done.

I've decided a total day off isn't too bad once in a while.

Do you listen when you're giving yourself a talking to?

Believe it or not, yes. Once I realise I've not made the most sensible choices, I determine to turn things around. That results in my mental talking to, and a bit of goal setting for the next little while. The result this time is a commitment to making sure the writing of two chapters instead of one this coming week.

It's a bad habit to get into, but I guess, it is Sunday.

Although I haven't been here all day, I've dropped by more than I should have. It's about 7 pm Sunday here in New Zealand

I am not as active on mylot as I would like to be. Why? I have to use notepad to respond, comment, or make discussions. If I try to type directly into the message box provided by mylot it takes forever. I don't understand why either. It's 9:10 PM here. Two more hours and I will be at work, trying to make the most of the time until I have to start getting ready.

I wonder why you have such difficulty commenting?

That is why I go online and do other things. Than downsize the computer and go back.

jo@Valmnz Yes we humans love to do that, but darn I think mylot is addictive for sure. Many of the people I made friends with on the oldmylot are back here so you all pull me into mylotting but I my case being eldery and a resident in a retirement center I have few responsiblities hence for me mylotting feels almost essential. I get stares from the care givers. 'At your age you know hoe to u se the computer? as if Im a freak well darn let me be a freak if if means I can keep up mylotting. Its cold here today in Southern Cal if.

It is easy to come on here for ten minutes and still be here 2 hours later. All other jibs will keep.x
