addictions

I have no idea what you’re talking about… so here’s a bunny with a pancake on it’s head.

I have become addicted to a couple of things in the past two weeks.  One of them is cookie solitaire on my phone.  Stephen and I desperately and conveniently needed new phones right as the new iphones were coming out in July.  So, I relented and we got them and said they could be a good write off because Steve can code and develop applications for it.  Well, I started going down the list of free downloads, and yep, solitaire.  This is my downfall.  Then add cookies to it to make it all sweet and stuff.  So now while I wait in line for my kids to get out of school, I sit and play solitaire on my phone.  Is it bad that I am secretly disappointed when they climb in the car, because that means I have to stop playing and drive?  And yes, just to ease your minds, I do stop playing.

Next addiction is facebook.  I just started this one last week.  I am having such fun looking up old pals and am always so excited when someone finds me.  I have wasted countless hours.

Next, I stare at the computer forever looking at houses for sale.  I’m not saying we’re buying, or not buying.  I just keep looking at the great deals.

That brings me to the next.  Craigslist.  How hypnotizing is craigslist?  It’s ridiculous.

Now, it’s not that I have nothing else to do.  I was just called as nursery coordinator (again).  I always have the coop.  I am the 4th grade art masterpiece coordinator for my kids elementary school, plus I am teaching one of the first grade classes because no one else signed up.  No, it’s not even my daughter’s class.  I am supposed to be editing pictures for my book.  We just started soccer for both the girls.  Kas and Stephen start football next week.  Trying to come up with a way to make Kas’ birthday amazing without spending a trillion $ etc., etc…

Addictions are bad.  I think someone told me that once.

    Ok, my actual point here is to remind you that if we are having book club next weekk, someone really ought to post about it. Since you have such a fun session going on here…
    I am addicted to my family, all of them, reading, especially sappy romances, but not super sexy romances, we’re talking Edward and Bella, Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy, etc, colorful things like ribbon, floss, paper, decorating magazines, shopping, talking and oh so much more.

    I am addicted to: Twilight, Dr. Pepper, shoes, exercising and chocolate.

    I love Solitaire. Good thing I don’t have it on my phone.

    Stephen, you are the only one to notice that because as Darilyn said, that goes without saying. You are my ultimate addiction, but a good one. Although I did think it was cute that Chris said he was addicted to Merilee. I guess that means I am not as cool as Chris.

    Chris, I haven’t tried Aurora Feint yet, but Kas is always playing cube runner. I make him play Brain Tuner to work on his math facts speed.

    Ginger, don’t start. It’s addicting and you waste all your time. Plus, it doesn’t really give you cookies. It’s all a lie.

    Amy, hmm…sugar or the computer. I think I have some sugar stashed in the desk under my computer, but my real weakness is salt.

    Darilyn, I love planning anything. It’s the follow through I have a hard time with.

    I’m so glad everyone played along.

    I love this post Elise. I don’t know about cookie solitaire but I am addicted to planning vacations. Weird, i know but I like to do it.

    I love the bunny.

    I like to look at houses for sale, too, although I haven’t done it nearly as much lately. In fact, it’s probably been a couple months.

    I check my e-mail and blog feeds about a bazillion times a day. NOT addicted to facebook,though. I might be somewhat addicted to spending time on my computer (no particular site or game). Love my Mac. But, my worst is probably sugar, and I don’t even eat that much of it any more – just more than I should. 😉

    Elise I am addicted to Cookie Solitaire too! Have you tried Aurora Feint yet? Or Cube Runner… both very addicting. I love the iPhone, just wish I could take video with the camera.
    My addictions are… Coke (McDonald’s has the best!), SportsCenter, Skiing, Merilee, Golf (lately), the Jeep (although I have been seriously slacking on this one lately), vacations, M&Ms, watching ‘Goodbye Lenin’ on the MAX while heading to work, the book ‘It’s not about the bike’ by Lance Armstrong, playing football with the kids at the park, well that’s enough right now.
