Morning routine...

This is me in the morning...

Alarm goes off...
Hit snooze.
Alarm goes off...
Hit snooze.
Alarm goes off...
Hit snooze.
Alarm goes off...

Realize it's 30 minutes ago my alarm first went off.

Stumble out of bed.

Poor cup of coffee.

Try and decide if I have enough time to check email/google reader/facebook/twitter/whatever.

Feed Libby (because she's meowing like she's been starving for days).

Refill coffee.

Turn on radio, and hop in shower.

Try and decide if I have enough time to check email/google reader/facebook/twitter/whatever. Again.

Pick out what I'm going to wear (this will make or break if I am on time to work or not).

Get dressed.

Blow dry hair.

Do makeup.

Check Blackberry.

Make lunch and fill travel mug with coffee.

Head to work...

My addiction to the internet is ridiculous. Seriously! I want to check everything about 50 times before I leave for the day! I think it's getting out of control!

Is anyone else as addicted as I am? How many times a day do you check all your favorite sites? Do you feel like you're forgetting something on days when you can't get to it? Am I the only one?!

Oh there is no day I don't get to it... even if I'm miles away from my computer, I WILL check it on my phone! Facebook, MySpace, E-mail (three g-mail accounts, hotmail, and work)... I can go without blogs for a day or two, but I'm always antsy to catch up. I would say I check these things infinite times a day. Haha.

I don't even want to admit how many times I check my e-mail! I need a 12 step program, for sure.

I couldn't get to my computer about a month ago for 3 days. i checked my stuff on my phone so much that I went over my internet usage by like 10mb and got charged a cent per kb. If you know anything about computer stuff....that's a lot of KB. ekkkk

Wow your morning sounds just like mine. I snooze the alarm about 4 times before getting up. Not only that but the 3rd snooze I'm awake so I'm just checking emails/facebook from my bed.

I'm very addicted. While I'm at work and something is loading so slowly, I grab my phone and check everything else.

I'll check my FB while being stuck in traffic. It's a sad sad addiction!

this sounds EXACTLY like my morning routine!
and yes I have an addiction to checking stuff online. its the technology these days. I crave it. getting an iphone was a bad idea- now instead of checking every couple hours, i check every 15 minutes. im disappointed in myself sometimes.
im curious how early you get up, considering you hit the snooze button that many times and still got everything done.
i try to pick out my outfit the night before. but for some reason I change my mind in the morning. i suck. ;P

I'm the same way and now that I get email to my blackberry I'm about a million times worse! I keep google reader up in the background while I'm at work and SLOWLY wade through it during the day because it usually has 60 + new posts in it every morning! Then, when I've FINALLY, gotten it down to 0, I STILL keep it on in the background and pop it up every so often to see if there are any posts!

I'm better abotu not checking Facebook or Twitter as much any more though, I check Facebook probably around 5-10 times a day (used to be upwards of 50) and I probably check Twitter about 20 times a day.

Wow, that still makes me sound totally internet-obsessed and pathetic! Haha

oh my goodness, this sounds EXACTLY like me in the morning... even down to hitting the snooze for 30 minutes! with this new job i've been trying to figure out how much time in need in the morning... if i want to get ready, eat breakfast and still have time to get dressed it takes me about 2 hours... eeeek! glad i'm no the only one!

I'm the same way in the morning with the alarm clock!

I keep Google Reader up at work -- it's bad!

Umm, I can't wake up early enough to check the internet in the morning. Part of my wants to have a blackberry so I could check throughout the day, but I think that would be just an overall bad idea for me.

dude, I'm just as bad. All 7 of my email accounts come to my Blackberry (2 personal, 1 for my IT consulting business, 1 for my doggie clothing line, 2 for my photography, and 1 for modeling). I have the Bank of America, Myspace, Facebook, and E-trade apps on my Blackberry as well, so I'm always checking one of those 4 apps at least once per hour. I have 3 laptops (1 full-sized, 2 EEEpc, and a Ipod Touch) that I use for entertainment, editing photos, and watching hulu.com. No worries darling, you are perfectly normal ;-)
