I'm exactly like you at spending more time on my computer than I should!!! But I also love it very much and would be lost without it.
I, too, get way too much e-mail and other things daily, and I'm in several groups of friends (with different themes) that are very chatty (it's hard to keep up with them, and sometimes I can't!!), but I enjoy it all!!
And now that I have found AARP groups, I have a lot more coming in!!!
Will I ever find the time to read books?? Sometimes I doubt it!!
But I'll have to make time NOW because I just got FEARLESS FOURTEEN by Janet Evanovich and must read it. And the friend I want to loan it to after I read it has given me THREE older paperbacks of Janet's that have been republished, and I'll have to read those to get them back to her!! Thank goodness Janet doesn't write long books!!!
Of course, I don't want FOURTEEN to end because there is a YEAR between her Stephanie Plum books, and you don't want one to end and have to wait so long for another!!!
Don't even mention magazines!! Mine are piled high, and I try not to renew some, but then others I think I'll "definitely" find time to read, and then I don't!!! And I just hate to discard them when I've paid for them!!!
Jackie, you and I sound like two peas in a pod. But I wouldn't have it any other way. Some people, when they retire, have nothing left to live for. I love having choices. Let's see, will I read a magazine now or the newspaper? Shall I go online and read the news or chat with friends? Oh yes, there's my favorite TV programs, too. I love many of the PBS shows and try to watch them when I can. I know I'll never find time for everything, so I just do what I please, when I please.
And I didn't even mention that I'm the coordinator of blood drive volunteers for our county. And I keep a set of bookshelves neat and clean at our local library. I'm amazed that I have enough energy for it all. But I wouldn't change a thing!
