Day Eleven: Is it an addiction???

Okay, this one hurts a little.... close to my heart. I think I just might be addicted to my laptop.. ughhhhhh there I said it. Isn't admitting you have a problem the first step or something...

That should be good enough right?

I spend time here when I could be doing the things that bring me and my family worth. Today I have a hectic schedule. I am going to start (trying really hard) to live as I say and say as I do today with my kids. I can feel my flesh tearing already!!! I can still be on the laptop but I need to make sure my chores/things on my list of to dos are done first!

I am a woman of worth and because of that I need to do as I say, and say as I do. I think I said that in an earlier post that one of my dislikes is people who don't keep their word. Man I got myself into a pickle with this one!

I think I am in physical pain over this... that is all I can say about it.


  1. I am a woman of worth and because of that I need to do as I say, and say as I do.

    Now I have the same relationship with the computer. I had tried to justify it as I am worth taking time to do something I enjoy, and my friends in the computer are worthy of my time.

    That is true. But when I tell Daughter Number One (small though she is) that we will draw in the afternoon, then I should do that and not fritter away time that I could spend with her. I don't like people who don't keep their word and too often I don't with Daughter Number One. She doesn't realise it yet (she is 17 months old) but she will soon.

  2. I know it is a hard pill to swallow myself as well.. we are a "do chores before play family" and yet somehow I still have laundry to fold.. mmmmm Definately convicted on this one! Thanks for your comments!

  3. Hi. My name is Lucy, and I'm a computer addict, too. ;)

    Oh, I have been singing this lament for ages. Ask any of my forum friends. Heck, look at my activity on FB! I've begun to use a timer. I have to or else I am too easily sucked into the virtual world. The kicker is that I would never spend as much time on the phone, ignoring my tasks and family, as I could easily spend on the computer. Yikes!
