I’ve been doing quite a bit of sitting back and just observing ATS since the day I first stumbled upon it. And for sure, life hasn’t really been
the same since. But, I still have one. There are some members though, that I worry about. ATS has a lot of members whom, I can tell, spend a great
deal of time here, I mean a GREAT DEAL OF TIME, mostly by the level of their participation, and the obviously great amount of time that they research
and prepare their posts and threads, and I admire and appreciate their input and knowledge. But do they have much of a life outside of ATS? I really
I’m a stay at home mom as most of you know. I stay really busy, my husband travels so a great deal of time I am a ‘single mom’, or it feels like
it anyway. I resigned from my job at a large bank when I had my first child and did go back to work for awhile, but because my husband traveled so
much and both of my kids have some health concerns, I had to resigned again. That’s ok, there’s plenty of time for me to make up for that later. I
do worry that there are times that I am on here too much, and when I recognize that I am I try to step back for awhile. As you could imagine, the kids
constantly have me on the go (in my hot soccer mom van) hehe. And as soon as someone needs my attention, I am there. My work gets done and I have
plenty of quality time with my husband and kids. We love to camp and take a lot of mini vacations. We love to play tennis together, star gaze and sky
watch. We have a bazillion cookouts and family/friends get-togethers, play games and of course my teenage daughter loves my company at the mall…..no
she doesn’t…she just loves my wallet. LOL Hubby and I get plenty of dates and I always make time for my girlfriends and our nights out.
I do look forward to going back to work at some point. I don’t know what I’m going to do, but it will be something I enjoy.
The only thing that has really suffered from my ATS addiction is my OCD. I only have about 5% of it left. I had to make sacrifices. hehe
Aw h*ll, who am I kidding? I spend way to much time here. I still do all of the things that I mentioned above, I love and enjoy life.....but I love
ATS too and yeah, before any mods come on here and say "Oh Rush, we can see exactly how much time you spend here and don't act like you don't know
it!", I admit it, probably a tad too much.
Do you have a life outside of ATS…what’s it like? If you don't have much of a life outside of ATS, would you admit it?
Come on amigos and staff, we want to hear from you too.
