    :coffee:coffeeI am one of those mom whose so called "me"time is only when my kids sleep. It's the time when I wish to keep aside my other priorities and may be check my mails or surf the net for new receipes with a toddler at home you bet this is the
    biggest challenge for every mother what new to prepare?... :spin:spin:ban
    My constant efforts to try scouting receipes leads to my attention being divided or rather diverted at other issues .with just about 2 hours at hand (that's the time my kids have their afternoon siesta). I rummage through indusladies.. Thinking today I am just going to roughly have a glimpse at the site. I have other sites to check... Focus ramya focus ..:bonk.:notthatway:
    Then suddenly I come across the thread fertility and trying to concieve ... My thoughts go out to those ladies who Are going through an emotional upheaval having passed that phase I think poor ladies I must empathize with them and may be throw my :my2cents.. Then suddenly I remember oh I posted in xyz thread let me see if I have got a reply... Also has anyone posted any pm for me...( I haven't opted for the email notification to avoid my inbox filling)
    In the toddler thread I see xyz has a query .. May be I can answer that having two toddlers I can surely assist someone...
    Then I come across some wonderful reply to a xyz thread I think wow let me check out the profile members profile .. Then digging deep in may be their post or thread in other columns...
    Then suddenly i come across A Beautiful blog .I end up reading that and the comments thereafter.I am about to post a comment my alarm rings to tell me it's time up.
    I wonder... :hide::oops:
    ... How my two hours got over I don't know but still not wanting to accept defeat I quickly decide to scan through the necessary site my attention falls on abc receipe... But then I am late I hear my daughters cry and off to square one!!... Then I think it's ok i will bookmark it and check it may be .tommorrow
    .. And my tommorrow never comes.!!!...:biggrin2::
    Disclaimer - this post is just in lighter vein I am sorry if I have offended the sentiments of any IL member by referring to it as an addiction or distraction.This post is just to pen my dilemma and may be evoke a smile reading it.

    ha ha ha...I so relate to what you say here. Only I don't have a daughter to tell me time's up. I have so many many many bookmarks that its like a 9-5 job reading through all the irresistible posts here on IL.
    Enjoyed reading your version of the addiction :D.
    Thanks for sharing. :)

    :) It all depends on how we concentrate... Its not jus INDUSLADIES, but all other community websites ver there are a lot of new talks going around and you dont know ver to start and ver to end... I tried this first.... Before even typing my login name and password on the website.... Juz go to a search portal... My mind says I have to look on how to make my kid eat good food???? So type the search verse with a '+' and INDUSLADIES.. As you know someone or the other would have an answer... Jus go in for the reply.. Read it... Then login with my details and say a BIG THANKS:thankyou2: ... And then continue to travel thru the ladies' world...
    This really helps... And its not a distraction or an addiction... Its all just INFORMATION, KNOWLEDGE, and EXPOSURE!!!!!!

    I know it is pretty kiddish:wink:... but this has worked out for me from the beginning... When I was first searching for a clarification online, this site gave me the rite info.. And then I started to search for whatever I wanted with a '+indusladies' on the search bar... And now I am a member and I love the site for whatever people are contributing..

    Last, but not the least... Thanks to you RAMYASRIDHAR.... I am now able to realize how this idea really works for 'at home moms'!!!!:thumbsup

    ramya,
    sometimes i get so lost here makes me feel its an addiction...not to say have benefitted a lot from reading the threads be it cooking cleaning or family issues... it also takes me off from my worries truly...so it is THIS and THAT...i just hope i get more organized without getting addicted....

    lol Ramya..that was a very cute one and I would add pepper to it that your thread is one of those which was not on my checklist today but I'm here posting a reply....rofl...and at 1.30 my alarm would ring that its time to wrap up as DD would be back from school and I would find I didn't prepare the client's survey report..I didn't check out the recipe for tomorrow's tiffin for DD...I didn't give a call to my cousin who's wedding just got fixed and on and on... !!Enjoy!!

    hi Ramya,

    welcome to our forum and the snippetting section in particular. :) I understand your predicament which btw every newcomer faces :) because we have all been there. very soon with time we learnt to make time for IL because like you say it is a very satisfying "me " time that one gets to spend here.

    i always used to wonder if i were the alone who goes through al the posts...!i joined indusladies to share my experiences during prgnancy through duedateclubs but ended up reading inlaw issues,marital problems...i think i got addicted so badly dat i study for half an hr and i look for posts related to strange marital problems,in-law issues...
    i bookmarked this page and i peep into indusladies wenevr i get bored...!
    i somehow restricted myslf not to login till i finish my vivo but cundt make it..:)
