Hello, my name is Rhonda and I'm addicted to the internet.
I am not a big computer geek. I know my way around the stuff I need and that's about it. Up until the past year or so, all I needed was email and an occasional Google now and then. No big deal, completely under control.
Then, I found Facebook. It was a complete accident, honest. I had a friend from elementary school find me. He had a huge crush on me in the sixth grade. When our class picture was taken he wasn't looking at the camera, yep, you guessed it, he was looking at ME! Well, you can imagine the load of crap I took for that for the rest of the year. I'm pretty sure he had a load to deal with too. Anyway, I accidentally (I promise) signed up for Facebook in order to respond to him. Then, as you all know, the friend requests started pouring in. I was hooked.
The addiction just got worse this past January when I joined Etsy. Oh, had I known what I was getting into! Oh, who am I kidding, I still would've joined! I love Etsy. I love selling my hats and mostly, I love all the girls that I have "met" in a chat thread called TeamCAC. They are my peeps and I love them. I chat in the morning, the afternoon, the evening, weekends... See my problem?
And since I possess little to no self control, it takes A LOT to get me off this darn laptop! My poor husband may not get dinner. The kids may be sent outside to play so I can "concentrate". The baby just might have to chatter in his crib for five more minutes. Just ONE MORE THING! Then, I'll be done. Yea, right.
I'm hopeless. I accept that. But, I did survive the night without my drug of choice, my Mac. I did get to create some new designs. I did enjoy some family time. I even got to bed at a decent hour.
Balance, that's what I need. I'll keep working on it.
