Are You Suppose To Be Doing Something Else Right Now?

United States
December 1, 2008 7:47am CST
Why do I always jump on the computer when I know I have a ton of things to do? Right now as I'm typing this discussion, I'm suppose to be washing dishes. The question is "why am I on Mylot when I have dirty dishes in the sink calling my name? I will answer that later when I'm most likely to know the answer. What about you? Is there something you suppose to be doing but you're on Mylot anyway?

I'm supposed to be looking for a job and I am going to start that in a couple of minutes. But the first thing I do when I get up in the morning is go on mylot. But I do have plenty of time and at least my computer is powered up and I'm making money, altough not enough to pay any bills. By the way, I also have that other situation. And I bet you were not the one that dirtied those dishes in the sink were you. Why can't everyone take a couple of minutes to clean the dishes they used? Or if they just want to wash it and put it in the rack to dry, it takes a few seconds. But I guess tat's too much work today. When I was growing up, I didn't dare leave even one dish i the sink.

BINGO! You hit the cow right on the nose. I said the same thing. It would only take a few seconds to put soap and water to those dishes and rinse them. A few of those dishes are mine, but I mostly wash my dishes when I'm finish with them if I'm not too busy Mylotting.

well, you can do like i do. i soak the dishes in very, very hot water. that way it takes a while for the water to get cool enough to stick my hands in it. so i myLot until it cools down. then by the time i remember about the dishes, the water is WAY TOO COLD. so i have to drain it and fill it back up with hot water. then while i'm waiting for it to cool down again, i do some more myLotting. then, by the time i remember about them again..........you see where i'm going with this? anyways, eventually the dishes get done......by the time i go to bed.........maybe tomorrow..... Oh Dang!!!......i have to go change the dish water again. Happy MyLotting.

That's what I do! It's easier that way because all the sticking foods soaks off the dishes in the HOTT water, so when it cools down, the dishes are easily clean when you run the towel over it. You are wise! High five!

I am sure there are plenty of things I should be doing right now, but my daughter is still asleep. I am taking advantage of the quiet and getting some myLotting done this morning. I will do the noisy things when she wakes up. The house is clean so there is not much I have to do except get several orders ready to mail out and some stuff for the store. My mom borrowed my car today, so I am kind of stranded until she gets off work anyway, so the orders and stuff will have to wait.

My daughter is over her grandparents house right now, so I have a little time to Mylot and do other things, like Mylotting.

Hi, I think it is because that most of time, or just sometimes, people are lazy creatures. And sometimes we are too superficial that we may value it that way: Wash dishes would takes me ten minutes, and I can earn nothing but wasting time, If I am in mylot, I can post several posts, and if the responses are many, I maybe able to earn a tiny sum of money... then you are on mylot... But we should realize that, those dishes will finally be washed, and the times still have to taken on washing dishes... I am in mylot, though I know that I have to make some preparation, wash my clothes, and wash my face and then go to sleep, for tomorrow I have to go up earlier... I tell myself that I need to stop inside my heart, but I can't stop, another voice say that:"maybe stop next post"

I just got out of bed, made me some coffee and got on the computer MyLotting, yes, I need to be doing something else, I have to go to work this evening so I am trying to get a little MyLotting in so that I won't get so far behind in my earnings and then have to struggle to make payout, I know some people say that are not interested in making payout, I feel that way too but still it feels good when you do.

Hey Chevee, I'm working right now. Mylot is part of my work. You're right, it is good to reach payout. I didn't reach payout last month but that's OK, because I'm not here mainly for that, but the bonus is nice. Thanks Chevee, I'm here because of people like you.

I think the answer to that question for most of us is a great, big "YES!" It is for me! Maybe we should all alter our responsibilities to make us feel less guilty. One, myLot! Two, some housecleaning. Three, myLot! Four, more housecleaning. Five, myLot! Six, more housecleaning. Seven, myLot. Eight, cooking. Nine, myLot! Ten, bed. Sound good? Okay, if you have to work outside the home, then replace a couple of the housecleanings with work. I always come here first thing. My body refuses to cooperate with me when I first wake up. I can barely walk a foot let alone try to do anything more. So, I wobble into my office and come to myLot. After around an hour, I can usually get going so that's when I do what has to be done around here. Feels good to justify our myLot addiction, huh?

Hey mentalward, I just love your responses. I'm smiling behind the screen right now. But yes, I'm the first to admit that I can't live without Mylot. I'm not going anywhere my friend, you are stuck with me.

Well, you're stuck with me, too! I've adored this place since the day I signed up. It feels good to get "away" from our own little world and there are so many wonderful, caring people here with some great ideas and information. I LOVE hearing everyone's stories about this or that. It makes me feel like I'm a part of something big. I've learned so much and had some awesome support when I needed it that I feel obligated to give back and it makes me feel so good when I do. Even if we have large families and lots of friends, it's always good to broaden our worlds. Personally, I have a very small family and my friends are far away. My husband works way too much and even when he's not working, he's working... he thinks about it a lot. That's just how his brain works. So, I come here. I love being around people and this is about the best way I can think of to do it. It's safe and you can choose the topics you want to talk about. I have about a gazillion 'projects' going on right now, especially with Christmas coming. They're sitting there, glaring at me and demanding some of my time so I do feel a little guilty about that. Guess I really should pay a little attention to them, huh? LOL Sometimes, I love being alone in my little world with all the things I like to do. But, on the opposite end, sometimes I just want to be with friends and myLot is an awesome place to find great friends! I'm happy to call you my friend, miracle! I don't feel "stuck" with you at all! Keep posting!

Yeah, I am supposed to be doing something else right now. I am supposed to be listening to calls and sales of the agents. But since, we had a long weekend prior to this day, we don't have anything to do yet. That's why I am doing my lot. This is not actually permitted at work. But since, I have nothing to do...here I am. Doing some responses.

Yes.....double, triple YES! I should be at work right now! But I have just worked 7 days straight.....so am sorta taking it a little less aggressive this morning! Don't worry, I am my own boss! Believe it or not, it does take discipline, but I am allowing myself this little downtime with myLOt! At my home, I too, have a sink full of dishes, and this weekend, I re-did my ensuite bathroom, and started to tear apart the bedroom.....so I have that huge mess staring me in the face! Things like that that drive me out of the house to work! Have a wonderful week!

How about washing the dishes first so you won't have to think about it anymore? I kicked my own butt until I washed mine.

Right now I could be doing laundry , but that is no fun. I just got off work and only have an hour and a half before I have to pick up my kids from school. So for now I am enjoying the peace and quiet. I can do the laundry later, but once they are home the quiet time is over.

Yes I am supposed to be in the studio working on ceramic projects. I am supposed to take a shower at 2 and get ready to leave for class. I did however pour 7 molds, and put the pork tenderloin in the pressure cooker. Oh I am supposed to be making bbq sauce for the pulled pork also. Am I going to get everything done I need to before leaving for class? Not likely. But the good news is that tomorrow is the last class I have till the 20th!!!! I will be able to work on my ceramics in peace after tomorrow!!!

Yeah, theres always other things I need to be doing, whenever I'm on the computer. Like right now, I need to be taking down all my fall decorations, I still have some Halloween stuff out..lol. I need to take it all down and get ready to get my Christmas stuff out, and I was going to do that today, but what did I do, I turned my computer on, and now I'm on Mylot right now...lol. I also have dishes waiting to be washed, they'll get done eventually.

You too? I know how it is. There are 24 hours in a day. You'll find the time somewhere in there to take care of it. But in the meantime, Chat chat chat. That's what I'm doing.
