What should you be doing right now instead of sitting at the computer? lol I know almost all of us have something else that we "should" be doing right now. I should be washing the dishes, doing laundry, & cleaning the house a little, while my daughter is actually napping, but I have had to spend so much time away from Mylot lately I want to post instead. Lol. How about you?

I too should be doing the same things that you should be doing. I have a sinkful of dishes and laundry in the dryer that needs to be folded but all I want to do is sit here and post. I cannot motivate myslef to actually get up and do something.... its ok because when my husband gets home I will blame it all on being pregnant. kinda like... "You know I'm pregnant and I just wasn't quite feeling like myself today and didn't really want to do anything" So then he helps me and it takes 1/2 the time lol... I'm so bad!!

Ola to everyone .. I'm travelling in Mumbai, India at the moment, so the time now is 01:05 a.m .. I should really be meeting my cousin who's waiting for me at this lounge below my building where I stay but I'm still upstairs in the living room all cozy on the couch typing away at my laptop ... I should be hitting the sack as I have an early dentist appointment tomorrow morning .. but again I'm still here .. Luckily all the housework has been done ! Good Day / Good Night - hope you finish off whatever you really should be doing :)

Nice post, but you really are sending people on a guilt trip, you know! I should be studying and preparing charts for my project presentation that is coming up shortly, but here I am, going through discussions and posting comments. This can be sort of addicting, but it makes me feel good too. I have never been a hardworking person and my study habits are very erratic, but ever since I came onto mylot, I respect my time more! That is because its only now that I weigh the time I spend against the money I earn. I now think that I have spent x hours online so its time to hit the books. Earlier, I would spend more than x number of hours, without compensation of any kind and would often go to bed feeling sick about myself. This is a nice community. It's a pity though that not everybody is using it the way it is meant to be used. By the way, I'm leaving for my books! I might have left a bit later, but thanks to your message, I'm leaving sooner! :-)

you are one of the few good ones, lol, I wish I could sit here guilt free, but it seems I can never get everything caught up to that point. I left earlier without getting the dishes done because my daughter was being too much of a hip baby, I did get the laundry done, lol, so I guess I am ok there, the kids are at my mom's for the night, so I guess I'll do the dishes & vaccuum in the morning before they come home, so maybe I can sit here guilt free, haha.

I could make a long list of the things I should be doing right now. First, I should have already had my shower, and exercised on the treadmill. I should be doing my housework right now, instead of perusing discussions and responding. I should also be clearing off my desk and getting the tax papers together, so I can do the taxes this weekend. OMG, that is all just too overwhelming. LOL, ok, I will give myself another 15 minutes, then I gotta get busy.

there is always something better that needs to be done instead sitting in front of the computer all the time! And of course the examples for this kind of activities are many! But what i think that i should personally do now is sleep because i am very tired.

Lol, I actually managed my chores for the day before coming online. It's part of the routine I have. Get the chores done, grab a cup of tea and sit down. I should actually be making another cup of tea because I have pills to take, but oh well, they can wait an hour or so LOL.

I swear no matter how much I do the pile never seems to go away. I should be cleaning the bathroom it is getting a little yucky. Well those are the things I should be doing but I would rather be here LOL!!
