    I don't have internet at the shop..

    I have caught myself leaving early to be able to check in before I have to get easy child to practice.

    I have rearranged my schedule many times to be able to post and read responses.

    I wonder if you guys feel the same way?

    I get a craving for the site when I am away and can't access it

    For me, it comes in waves. There are times I feel that I couldn't live with-o checking in; other times I hate the fact that I feel so at home here. (No offense intended)

    However, I appreciate all the friends & support I've garnered here & hope I give the same on a daily basis.

    I get up a half hour earlier than I would need to so I have time to check in and see how everybody is doing!

    Addicted? Not me!

    I know I was addicted for about 3yrs. I haven't posted as much lately but I know if I need an answer or need support, this is where I go. :smile:

    I'm more like TL in that I need to visit the site in waves it seems to depend on what is going on with the boys.

    i registered seven years ago in march. at the time this was a lifeline.

    i haven't *needed* the board for years. yet i'm still checking in just about daily. not posting as much as i used to, but still here.

    I think I may have an overall interenet addiction...I have about 5 boards that I check in on all day, this being one of them.

    Definitely a lifeline for me and I've made a couple of friends as well. :angel:

    I check in constantly during the day when I'm at work. Don't get on the computer as much at home. Nice job huh???
    I find if I come on, like yesterday when it said the site was suspended for a short time, I kind of panic. I love to be able to come here and visit among people who know so much about my life.

    I used to belong to a few boards, but I have found I am most comfortable here and there is one other one I check every once in a blue moon, but I don't know anyone there anymore.

    Janet if you leave we may just have to hunt you down. And I'd be at the head of the search party. :wink:

    :smile:Glad to know I am not the only one!!

    I thought about adding internet to the shop, but I was scared I wouldn't be able to walk away from the computer.

    See it's 2:00 in the afternoon and I am at home on the computer!!!

    husband teases me about being a CD junkie. But he's always lurking too, to see what I've been saying. It actually works well for us (I've got to say that, I know he's lurking!)

    Seriously though, I'm learning a lot from this site. When things were down while changeovers were made, I was edgy, wondering how everyone was getting on.

    I check in when I can, but if I'm busy I might miss a day or so here or there. Now we're on broadband it's easier to walk away when I have to, but also easier to have a quick drop in.

    Nope, I'm not addicted. I can quit anytime I want to. I just don't want to :wink:
