I know this happens to everyone, but I get so frustrated with myself when I'm online and trying to work. My time gets sucked away from me because I just can't keep my attention on what I'm supposed to be doing!
This was my time sucking pattern today:
I always start my online work with checking my emails to see if there is
anything that's important that I need to address right away. I received my daily email post update from my friend Leticia Barr of Tech Savvy Mama. I clicked on her link to read about her latest adventure at Universal Studios and the new Minion Mayhem ride. As I completed writing my comment on her post, I decided to look around her site. I clicked on her "About" page and read about her many accolades. At the bottom she described that she is the co-founder of Straight-Up Crafty. So, of course, I clicked on the link.
What's the first thing I see? A purse of course (a market tote to be exact). So I read the post. I left a comment and then proceeded to click on the link for the Etsy shop IndependentReign that sells the purse. There I found MANY things that I have to buy myself. While on Etsy, I decided to see what was new in the jewelery world. That led me to jewelery storage & organization.
Then I thought, "I can make that...there must be directions on Pinterest." Yup. I did. I went to Pinterest and of course spent a good 3 hours there just pinning away.
That's when I looked at the clock on my computer and realized that it was 5pm and I hadn't even started dinner yet.
