Hi. This is my 5th day here at Mylot and I am enjoying every bit of it so far. I try to earn from home, but my responsibilites around the home and daily life keeps me very busy. I have cooking, cleaning, bills to pay, a doggie to take care, my family to cook for, and just daily duties to be done like laundry, etc. Im just wandering how each of you get your things done on a daily basis and contribute to mylot? I know I am having a very hard time working everything in my daily schedule. I feel that I need to be as productive around the home as I am to mylot daily. I try to earn online as it really helps us out around here on the bills and such. Sometimes I feel overwhelemed with trying to do all requirements mylot expects from us. I also feel like I am not contributing enough around the home and to mylot everyday as there seems not to be enough time in the day. I try to post discussions and I am now responding to discussions of mine that you have replied to. Does anyone else have any insight or input on how their get through their daily routines plus be a valuable contributer here on mylot? If you do, please tell us about it, so we can learn and try to get more things done daily at home and be more productive here at mylot.

Well you are absolutely right in telling about the shortage of time, Infact since when I have joined mylot I have started getting up early by three hours and that is the time I am giving to mylot. Other household work are too much essential it is difficult to take out time from them. So just reduced my sleeping hours though i feel tired at times.

It is not very difficult for me to juggle daily life and mylot. I complete all the household chores in a couple of hours and i have a whole day for me till my husband returns at 6. Normally i complete all the household work from 6 to 9am including preparing lunch and breakfast and my bathing. So the rest of the time i browse, watch tv, study becoz i am preparing for my exams and do a lot of myloting. And tthen when my husband arrives he also helps me with my lot. We both do from the same account.he also enjoys mylot. So it is not much difficult for me.

I have 2 children to look after so I don't have a lot of time for MyLot! I usually do some of the housework and get my oldest to helpo with it after I have put the baby to bed. Then after spending some time with my oldest child, I will put him to bed, tidy up toys and things and then go on MyLot for an hour before I do everything else I need to get ready for the next day. It is quite easy to fit it in if you do it to wind down after being busy all day.

I found mylot in, January and became so enthralled with the site that it was almost an obsession. I have a husband and an Autistic son at home and needed to get my priorities straight. I do log into site everyday and post some responses to other's discussions; haven't started many of my own as of yet, but at least I'm contributing a bit. Everyone has their own lives and things they need to do. We just have to find a happy medium with life and mylot...lol

Your discussion may be posted 4 weeks ago. But I was thinking you've just described my situation here. Like you, I need to do about a hundred things everyday and feeding my bunny. I try to sneak in a few hours here at mylot whenever my two little ones are still in school. I've been a housewife for 8 years now and at times, I was wondering when can I ever have the chance to work again. I try to finish all the mundane task at my house, take a bath, prepare a light meal for myself and my bunny and work on my computer. Mylot definitely can't give you much earnings. That's why I'm still trying to figure out some of the links posted here about online money making. You'll just need to learn not to out too much pressure in whatever you're doing. Happy posting...

hi, i'm a full time employee and being in the net is hard for me. I am only here at my 6 pm till nine everyday. I am like an addict to this community coz i love it here and i also want to earn some more. So when i get home i on the computer go to mylot and while i am posting i do some household chores coz my internet connection is slow so i can do things in the house. If i have a fast connection i know i can do a lot of earnings here coz i have lots of ideas that wanted to share and also wanted people's opinion... But im trying to post and discuss at least 20, so im giving myself a limit... if i can't then so be it but im trying to have a target. But on my weekend i am here the whole day.... he he he but im also working in the house the daily routines.

I have a busy day but i find by getting up a bit early each day gives me a bit of time in mylot and then once i have done what housework i have planned for the day i can then once again pop back into mylot for a bit more R&R but some days i`m unable to get in here but thats ok the world isn`t going to come to an end if i can`t make it

I try to get on during my breaks from the family life! It is hard there are days I don't get on at all and then I cannot wait to see the new discussions! I am addicted and I love discusing new topics. I guess you just have to take it as you can. I am not racing but I do want to make as much as I can everyday! and who kknows maybe at some point they will stop paying on here so better get them in!

Try doing all that you do AND working a full time job. I still have to cook and clean and run errands. I'm just very efficient with my time. If a get a few spare minutes I'll do this. If I am waiting for a program to load on my PC, or am printing something and waiting, I can be on mylot. I also use it during my lunch break at work (I often eat at my desk)

For myself I try to do things before I get on in the morning , take abreak at luch do some more chores and then back to my lot. When I have a lot of discusions out it is hard too, I try to keep to 3-4 a week and just respond to others.I agree it does get tough sometimes to manage it all...hang in there you will get a system going ...
