I was shocked when I estimated my weekly time to be about 6-7 hours, some weeks more, some less. I wake up early early a.m. so I can come and check out what was posted the night before. There are some individual thread starters that I simply never miss because I always thoroughly enjoy what they've got new going on in their room and they're so sweet to share. I always try to keep up with those who are suffering because I feel they need compassion and comfort. I have a friend who is a member of a sports forum and it keeps up with the hours logged in and states, "You have wasted 679 hours of your life here." I suppose I should worry more about the dust in the corner of my living room but, I'll worry about it tomorrow. My main purpose is for the camaraderie, support, and finding new ideas. I know it's not a waste of time.
