Not really.
I spend a few minutes here and there so Im not really sitting here for hours on end. So it may add up to a bit at the end of the day but it doesnt really interfere with what needs to be done around my house so whatever.

Probably. But I enjoy it so is it really wasted time? If I didn't have the internet I'd still procrastinate on stuff and read or watch TV instead of getting jobs done...I used to do that as a student.

Yes, especially since getting a smart phone in December. Now it's just too easy to "quickly check" something. I probably should change that as well.

No, I usually pop on a few times a day but it's 5 minutes here 2 minutes there. Long enough to see what's going on in FB land and maybe pop over on JM. Then about 2 nights a week I will spend an hour or so on FB talking to my mom but if I didn't do that I'd be an hour on the phone so it's all the same. Today is an exception though, I have been on here for over an hour but I'm searching for Florida laws about insurance companies to see if I'm really going to have to take them to court to get my van paid for. Ugh! My brain is frazzled already, I would never want be a lawyer, this is sooo boring lol!

I'm always so busy doing other things that I don't have time for myself to get on the internet really. I don't have a facebook....I only do the JM thing and not a whole lot (but I like it )....I read the news online everyday because I don't watch it on tv very often. I get on when I get a chance....which is not enough, lol.

Actually sitting down at the computer is rare. But I am on my phone quite a bit at work. When I work overnight (6p-6a) my client is asleep most of the time and I have to stay awake so I need to do something lol.

I used to spend more time, but lately I've cut back a lot. It's hard though, because JM and FB keeps me connected to real life adults and not just toddlers and babies.

No, not really a whole ton of time. I get on fb on my phone at work during the day, lol and the only time I get on the actual laptop is at night when the kids are in bed. I would say I am "online" less than an hour and half a day.

Yes, absolutely. I use Google Chrome as my internet browser, and I recently installed "stay focused". It allows you to limit how much time you spend online. I have mine set to 60 minutes per day between facebook and JM. It's been quite freeing.

Well, on my phone....yes. Sometimes its the only thing keeping me awake during late night feedings and stuff. But very rarely do I get to actually sit down in the computer chair and surf.

I don't feel like I am. I pop on and off, but am never on long. If you add up all the time its maybe an hour in a day? Most times less. But if you ask my hubby I am on all the time! lol
