How much time do you spend on the computer?

Ok, so I read an article stating not only are teens and some young children spending too much time "hooked up" but it seems parents are also! That now kids are wanting to put their parents on a amount limit. I know I spend some time on the laptop, you know the facebook games are addicting as heck, but I still have time to do the laundry, clean the house, make dinner and read my girls a "Fancy Nancy" story or two, but yes there are days where I dont have the girls (grandma kidnaps them on occasion, no complaining from me!) and yes I read up on the news, or am on here seeing whats going on in the world of moms! So what about yourselves? Do you catch yourself being on the computer and realizing the day has all but passed you by?

It is not that I spend too much time in fb, it is that, if I don't my crops will die :)

Nah, when my daughter is home, I am not on as much as when she is with my ex. I worry A LOT and the computer is an escape (mentally)

A lot, but my business is internet based, and we also have a second business. All the accounts are also on the computer. So yeah, I am on a lot. I always have FB open, as well as my email, and check in here and there. I don't play a lot of games - I occasionally get sucked into one, but honestly don't have the time.......

I spend way too much time on the computer. At the moment the girls are begging their brother to take a nap, so I will get off the computer and watch a movie and they can take over. I pretty much only let them on when I'm taking a shower. ;)

I am on the computer quite a bit, however part of it is because it's part of my business. I'm constantly listing new items, answering questions, running specials, sending invoices, etc. And naturally while I'm doing all that I'm also on Facebook emailing my best friend, or checking CoM. I try to do it all while my daughter is sleeping, but it's too much to do in a 2 hour time span, so when she plays "art show" at the table next to me, I get on the computer and get down to business. I'm logged onto the computer almost all day so I can spontaneously check it to see if I have new messages/orders/etc, but probably only spend a whole 2 hours a day combined on it.

i'm on here alot less than it seems. when i get a free minute or two, i'll pop in see what someone has said on a particular thread that has gotten my interest, and respond. when my son is napping is when i'm on it for a little while, probably too long. but i do manage to get my housework done, and go to work in the morning, and have time for my boys-so it all works out, lol!

sometimes i do think i'm on here a bit too much-especially when theres a topic that REALLY gets to me, but i don't feel it has interefered with my life at all.
