    I have two iMacs running.

    One for office work and one for my music studio. I also have an iPhone and one iPad. I have a tendency to forget to log out. Suddenly I'm asleep and people think I'm wide awake. I'm not.

    It's not often but, sometimes you have things

    to do. It's never for a long period of time. I don't want to shut down the computer and then wait to sign back on.

    I am going in different directions at a drop of

    a hat.. this morning. lol.... Who am I kidding... Everyday, I bounce around from one thing to another. One thing leads to another. My light may say... I am here... But... I am off doing .. something. What can I say... I may be logged in but I might not be in front of my PC.

    Quite Often - There Is Nobody Here!

    I wake every morning @ 06:30 I log in to Ep on my iPhone, check my overnight messages, reply to them, then start to get on with my day. By the time I've fed the cats, tidied the kitchen, showered, made coffee, and got myself together, its nearly 08:00. By 09:00 I'm round mums...

    Don't think I'm ignoring you.

    I often stay logged in on my phone and tend to have lots of tabs open at once no matter what device I'm on. I"m flighty like that ...... ;)

    If I'm home the PC and TV are usually

    both on, but that doesn't mean I am paying attention to either one. It is probably a bad habit and is certainly a waste of electricity, but I doubt it will change any time soon.

    ✏️ Ahh … The green light is on,

    and there has been no response. Hm … The pup could need to go out, the phone could be ringing, the come to my revival could have knocked, or how about nature, yes nature, could actually be calling.

    Drat, I Did It Again!

    Once again, I've returned to my computer after several hours to discover that I left myself logged on to EP. I only intended to be gone for a minute, but became involved with other things. That would not be a problem, except that to friends, it appears I am here. I feel so bad...

    It Sometimes Takes Me A While To Get Back To Folks.

    During the week, I EP early in the morning with my first cup of coffee and I answer some messages and try to catch up on what  some of my buddies have written.   Then when I get to work, I check to see what hubs has said.  Then  I answer a few more messages, wb, gestures and...

    Seriously, If You Can't Wait....

    Then, we're probably not going to get along long term anyway! I have a life... A real one, other online obligations and desires, and sometimes I am still signed on because I don't want to sign out and back on again! At least now EP allows us to show different options when signed...

    I stay logged in for long periods and I'm usually not far away but I'm not available at all times. So I'm not ignoring you. Leave me a message and I will contact you as soon as possible.

    ... or Mac, in my case!

    ;-) I frequently forget (or, to be honest, just don't bother) to log off when I get up from my desk to go do other things, so please don't take offense if it looks like I'm on but I don't respond. I'm probably away and haven't seen your message! :-) This is particularly true...

    Lots to Do Here

    I could be on the phone, responding to emails, talking to the neighbour, or talking to a calf in my yard. Sometimes I could be working between stories or feeding myself.

    I work long and sometimes weird hours at home

    and online. My computer is hardly ever offline lol. However I keep crossing back and forth from my work, back to EP so if I don't reply straight away don't take it personally, but I promise to respond. If I ever need complete privacy then I always log off :)
