I am fairly sure I am addicted to the Internet.
My husband has suggested as much on more than one occasion. I hate to say it, but I think he is right.
Admitting you have a problem is the first step towards recovery right?
I feel like this must be a common problem among women my age and in my situation (home with unlimited access to the computer). Is it? It must be.
I am to the point where I tell myself, "No more Internet till you clean up the house (or fold laundry etc)", and then I walk past the computer on my way to do something else, and I end up checking my email or my reader to see if anyone has posted a new blog. It's so seductive. That high you get from seeing "new comments" posted, or a new email in your inbox. Or how you can just get lost for hours clicking on links in blogs to find more blogs and more crafty, interesting people. ARGH!! It's ruining my life.
OK that may be a slight exaggeration. But, I am starting to feel like blogging is bad for my self-esteem. I swear, I read blogs and think...man, I must be the least creative, least productive person alive! Do you feel that way too? Because I know that it is not real life, and that there is quite a skewed view or reality floating around in blog land, but still...
Do you think there is a 12 step program for this?
OK really, I am going to fold laundry now...
