I have an addiction that I need to fess up about. I am addicted to the internet and computers and particularly facebook and blogger. I have a primal need to "check-in" on certain websites everyday and sometimes several times a day to see if anything new of my interest has popped up. The only problem is there is little thing called "work" that I also have to do during the day. Yes I know that is very inconvenient. Now so far I have had no problem getting all my work done and then some. I guess I am pretty good at managing my time.
See I work from home. Which is a blessing beyond belief that I NEVER take for granted. I am on the computer for work ALL DAY LONG. I get bored sometimes with it just being me here by myself and no one to talk to. So when I have a lull in my work...I skip over to blogger and check out the blogs I follow or I jump on FB and check for my friend's newest status updates. I guess it is like the office coffee break or smoke-break for me. At least that is the excuse I am choosing.
I try really hard not to let the computer pull me back in once I go pickup Jonah after work. He deserves my full "real" attention once he is with me. I am sad to say that there have been times when I just could not overcome my craving to check-in and would be holding him in my lap and looking on the computer at FB. I feel terrible about that so I am making a pledge now to only check-in online when he is not with me or asleep.
So with all that being said, I am going to try and pull more people over into my addiction by prividing some tempting and worthwile sites that I love and use weekly (sometimes daily) on the big ol' web. Enjoy!
