      Hey Origin, I'm afraid I'm sleeping when I should be writing hubs!  Actually I love to write at night-so quiet and mysterious somehow-but recently my body said 'Enough!' and I am obeying.
      Hope you do get a couple of zzz's!

      yes plenty, like working on work!

      hubbing is so addictive once you start writing. my last hub took a while and I remember my son saying, mom, walk away for a while.
      but I couldn't until it's finished.

      btw, I like the profile pic you decided on!

        Thanks, I'm still undecided though. For about an hour earlier I was using my robot in a suit avatar, then I switched back again to me. I'm not sure if I should use me or not still, hmmm decisions.

        I posted this thread 2 hours ago, I was about to head to bed, but I had to finish my last hub. I didn't want to stop half way through.

        But now I believe it's bed time, I'll be back in 6 hours. big_smile

    I quit smoking when I was supposed to be writing hubs, now I am writing hubs when I should be sleeping, eating, bathing... I can't catch up! LOL.

      I hear that, I have skipped a few meals.. not intentionally, but it's because I was in the middle of a hub and I didn't look at the time. I have gone to bed late on several occasions though. But it's all good, I have tomorrow off so I can sleep in a bit.

        Now we can't have hubbers turn to dust because they no longer eat, Origin!  Heh heh.  Sometimes when I'm on a writing roll, I treat it like a job.  I take breaks and a lunch so my body doesn't freeze in the typing position forever! smile

          Hmmm.. well I used to skip meals at work in favor of getting things done early lol. Uh oh! yikes

      Hey there, Faybe-how's the quit coming?  I will not lie about mine, I cheated yesterday.  I smoked 3 of the danged things on my way to see my surgeon.  Hip replacement surgery is 2 weeks from today, so I guess that's my excuse for lighting up.  I did make it 12 days smoke-free, and today is coming along just fine...so far!
      Just have to start again!

        I got the Blu-cigs. That really helped! I am still puffing on them, and boy am I glad I bought them. I am free of regular cigarettes, these are just nicotine replacement. You should try chewing on mint flavored tooth picks, and my dad used to suck on cloves after he quit.

        Oh oh, a hub coming on. Tricks to stay quit! Thanks Lorlie!

          Ever try the nicotine gum? If so, does it work for you?

            Sorry, I was trying to find something and forgot what I was looking for. LOL. I hated the gum, but I have TMJ so it's bad for the jaw anyway.

    Yeah, I'm writing hubs (or reading hubs or promoting hubs or posting on forums) when I should be doing dishes or doing homework or doing laundry....big_smile  eventually I get caught up only to start the process over again....big_smile

    This is one reason why I wish I had this as a full-time job, because it's A) fun and B) I'm willing to work lots of overtime even unintentionally. big_smile
