Does anyone else experience this? I come here for a specific reason, get distracted by one or two posts on the home page and read them. Then a member photo in the thread catches my eye and I follow that to their profile, then their photos, then to a comment made by one of their photos to another member's photos. Then I wonder "how did they do that?" and look that up and find a tutorial.....

And then cannot remember what it was I was wanting to look up in the first place icon_rolleyes.gif

Yup.
It's the same thing around the house. I start out doing one thing, get side-tracked doing other things, then about an hour later, I realize I didn't do the first thing. It's caled Busy Woman Syndrome. That's redundant--it's Woman Syndrome.

Ditto (%100)

I always get distracted here and spend 2-3 hours reading the posts and looking at the photos, or searching for a tutorial and etc.

I agree - then I get tired - go to bed and wake up in the middle of the night thinking - oh crap - I needed to look up how to do ???? or the recipe for ???? and start the process over the next day!!! Oh well!

I too have this syndrome. Sometimes up to the wee hours of the am reading posts and looking at pics. I get distracted so easily, lol.

Yep, me too. I check out something and want to be quick and something else catches my eye again and again.

Then I keep telling myself "this is the last page I'm going to look at" but it never works, something else always catches my eye.

Oh bother. icon_rolleyes.gif

And I thought I was the only one!! I get on CC and give myself a time limit while I'm having a cuppa, and always stay on line alot longer.....like everyone else I start looking at one thing which leads to another which isnt even related to what I started looking for!! and before I know it an hour has passed......lol now I know it's not just me!!!

You guys aren't the only one... there are times when I am on here for an hour at time sometimes more depending on how engrossed I get. I do the same thing check the board to learn anything new and get caught up in that or see new pics posted and start looking at those. Its very addicting!
