No, not really, but seriously I was wondering, about how many hours a day would you say you spend on PT? I thought it would be interesting to see what everyone has to say!

Way too long I've been keeping it open in the background all day so it is checked often!

Ditto! I have this and one other message board on my computer, which is on the kitchen counter! Every time I walk by I click "check new"

This summer I have been awful! I really have been spending time at the beach and cleaning my house and working in my classroom -- but I've still been on here entirely too many hours. I only posted a few times on here during the year. This summer I became a "senior member".

I consider it an educational pursuit! I've learned lots of new things and I've lost eight pounds thanks to all the inspirational posts I've read on this site!

I come and check occassionally, usually for about 20 minutes at a time. Probably a couple of hours total...give or take.

PT in June o fthis year so I am a newbie. I absolutely love this site and have found so many awesome ideas for me and other teachers I know. I am hooked. My DD says I am addicted. She is right. My DH says I am going to develop bedsores from sitting so much, ! They just tease me cause they know how much I love my job and how many dozens of hours I spend working on "school stuff" in the summer. DD will know how I feel in a few years as she will be starting college in the fall. She wants to teach high school English though. I am a first grade teacher and can't imagine teaching high school. Anyway, all that said, I must admit that some days I check in 4 or 5 times a day and sometimes spend an hour or more looking. I am bored though and have been staying home to save money with gas being outrageous. Packing up DD's stuff and PT are my entertainment for the summer. Lovin' every minute of it though. I am glad I'm not the only PT junkie out there!

I wanna plead the Fifth too! And every new thing I learn only increases the pull.

And I was quite proud of myself for not getting on here before noon today...though I've been here on and off since then... I leave to do something then "reward" myself by sitting down and playing catch up...I hate to admit though that when I sat down and hit "new posts" today, it is up to about 21 pages. It totally stresses me out to think I will never get to some of those.

Do I need to get an intervention??

I probably log in at least 2 hours a day. Sometimes, like today, it's much less because everything's going so slow...I can't stand to watch pages load!

At least 2 hours a day. I'm on vacation now, and here I am in the hotel lobby, waiting for my dh to get ready for dinner, and I find myself using the free internet to check what's new on PT!! If that's not addicted, I don't know what is!!!

To be honest, if I didn't spend so much time on PT, I probably would have had a real summer break! However, I would have missed out on valuable resources, advice, ideas, support, and shopping deals.

So... hmmm...

Whenever I get the time--except sometimes I go without for a couple of weeks--talk about not being able to catch up! Does it seem to anyone else that there are many many many more posts than there used to be?

Probably the typical answer - about 2 hrs. per day. Maybe it's less than that, but I check frequently for new posts.

I have to say I have dial up to so I am on here waiting for pages to load and when it's slow I just shut it off. When it's fast or I am at school (wireless) I am on here way to much. I can't seem to catch up either. This is usually the first thing I do while drinking coffee and I usually end the night by chatting in the chat room so I say at least 2-3 hrs.

sporadic visits from me add up to 2-3 hrs per day depending on the day.. most of this is while my kids are napping or at night when they are in bed! I am an addict.

Wouldn't it be interesting if underneath our handle, instead of the number of posts we'd made here, it kept track of the number of hours and minutes we'd spent here?

I am bad...I am on here way too much...but my husband is a dork and he is next to me on his computer playing Final Fantasy -- so it's kinda like quality time? Maybe? A little?

Happycat...I would be very embarrassed if they did that!

I am usually on for a couple of hours at night. I am a newbie too and am proud to say that I just became a junior member last night since joining this month. I have learned soooo much! I hope I can continue to check often during the year.
