yeah, I'm still "failing"...but I think part of it is because of the extra time I spend writing. I mean that it just tempts me to want to look at other things while here...except that really I have been pretty focused on the writing except for tonight.

at least I was able to video chat with my sister in law and her sons this time today. That was fun!

And now I'm gonna try to go work out. Been a long time needed!

Sigh! Here I am at ten to 8am already online (well, it's been over 40 minutes now). The thing of it is, I go to this for videos and reading as well, since I don't have easy access to a library/have a library card and I also don't have a DVD player in my bedroom...but the most key aspect that I remembered this morning was that even if I did have a library full of books, I don't have a reading lamp. Hubby actually refused to install one when we first moved in here nearly 10 years ago. I used to always have a reading lamp and would often fall asleep reading, even during the late afternoons and early evenings while studying school books, unfortunately. But the point is, I use my tablet because of the light. The main light in here is not so good for reading. Plus, I'm interested in so many different articles that can only be found online. But back to the lamp. If I want a lamp, I have to go out into the cold living room and lay on the couch there. Well, I don't want to have to get up and reaclimatize myself to the bed/bedroom temperature. I'd rather just fall asleep right after reading.

Yes, I'm quite possibly just making excuses for what is an addiction, but what else can I do?! I mean, sometimes I just can't compromise! I think I might have to revisit this lamp idea...maybe after the "thing" stuff though.

Oh! But the other reason I'm up so "early" is because I went to bed at 11pm. Well, of course I didn't sleep until after midnight, but that's at least an hour earlier, actually about 2 hours earlier than I usually sleep... I'm almost positive I will need a nap later though. I might have even fallen back asleep just now had I not begun to feel hungry.

Have a good one all!

They making the little lights for reading maybe look into one of those too. I don't know if you can find an way to install the reading lamp yourself.

Omg! I fell asleep right after signing off before I even ate. (I had very intention to go eat at the time because i was very hungry) Wth! Now it's already B&B time.
Seems the more I think about quitting the internet the harder it is to stay off! (maybe this is withdrawal from Clonazepam?? )

Donna-i dunno at this point. Because there isn't a lot of room, on the floor or on my "nightstand". I need another drawer for all my meds and supplements I take first thing in the morning/before bed because right now they take up the top of the stand. And I thought about a standing one with the curved neck, but again, no room for it really. I was thinking of something mounted on the wall behind the bed, but I'm not good at stuff like that and maybe those are expensive lights?? And they aren't plug-ins? Maybe? So I'm definitely not good at wiring and I'm not even sure this house is set up properly for that. I understand we have poor wiring in this house from my Dad's electrical expertise, but he tends to mess things up in our house when hubby wants things a certain way (and I agree that it's our house, not my Dad's. Dad tends to tell us how we "should" do things. Smh omg, does that sound familiar?? -Hubby is now doing this if you recall/if I clearly said this before) Anyway, so yea, I'm not sure if the ideal wall mount would work. Sorry for this long explanation. I get accused of "making excuses before attempts" (yea that one is hubby), but as you can maybe see, I DO actually try and I really am just faced with too many obstacles. Argh! That's why I just sit around and "cope" online as well. Sigh!!!
Thanks for trying folks! And I hope I don't discourage anyone because maybe someday there will be solutions! Hugs!

omg! I missed your post last time I was on Bobby! Sorry! But I did see it offline...

and, sorry Donna, I didn't realize that's what you meant too. I don't know why I didn't remember those things, but anyway, I went ahead and bought one tonight from Amazon (needed some other stuff there anyway), so let's see how this works! ...oh, but hopefully I'll be able to get batteries for it because it doesn't come with any. Hope hubby can pick some up soon!
Ok, well goodnight!

I think most people are really depressed from the virus. It is so terrifying.
