A friend I haven't seen since I was an attention starved/seeking teenager didn't believe me. This is literally all I do with some housework and streaming mixed in for flavour. πŸ˜‚ #petsandplants is really where it's at, am I right? #plantsmakepeoplehappy
My husband works nights so he will go to bed at 4pm on worknights and leave me with my dog and kitties downstairs. Most nights I just waste time with my plants πŸ˜… staring at them, lifting them, moving them, propping them. My kitten crawls into my lap when I’m watering now, because she knows I’ll be there for ages and she’ll get to sniff the plants πŸ’¦πŸŒ±πŸˆI used to be a heavy video game player, but now I’m plant/pet mum, so boring πŸ˜‚
I wished I could spend more time on this community but my husband gets aggravated at me so much. I’m usually on it when I wake up before him and way after he wakes up. Spends endless hours on here. Hence my post that was another reason why I was stepping away for awhile. He felt I wasn’t spending time with him. This community and app has literally became an addiction to me. One I have to break, but due to my health right now I’ll be tempted to. But my health and drs appointments and procedures I may have to have will help me break my addiction. I have 1 dog 🐢 and 1 cat 🐈. The dog I have no pics of because he hates his pic taken, he a Heinz 57 type dog. Here is my Stella. That was her yesterday while I was on a Zoom call.
@KikiGoldblatt i hear you on that. I used to scroll Insta and Twitter. Now I scroll Greg
@WickedValkyrie haha! Same here. Plants, streaming, and housework! I have a dog I spend time with too. And my spouse. :) About to throw some exercise into the mix tho!
@EagerPhlox same here. Mine was Facebook and Instagram. I’m rarely on there anymore.
@KikiGoldblatt Stella is beautiful (just like her momma!) I’m sorry you’re having a tough time. I can totally understand how addictive this app can be! Remember to take time for you too 😘 even if it’s a cup of tea with your plants, a movie with your hubby or a walk with your dog. We are always here when you need us. I hope you start to feel better β€οΈβ€πŸ©Ή, self care is no1. If you need someone to talk to, I’m here if you want to chat x
I know how you feel @KikiGoldblatt I'm addicted to this app also, I spend hours on Greg πŸ€ͺ I'm alone so nobody can get irritated at me for spending all my time with my two dogs and my plants. I hope your health issues clear up soon, your help and advice is so informative, I thank you for that. Hang in there Kristy, I'm rooting for you πŸ˜‰β˜ΊοΈπŸ₯°πŸ˜
@KikiGoldblatt Stella is so precious! I'm sorry to hear you're not doing very well, I hope you recover soon! πŸ–€ @HoyaAddict @EagerPhlox @Sassylimey the addiction is real and I haven't even been using this app long! I have a timer thing set on my phone to lock me out of FB & IG after I've used them for 2 hours, I'm thinking I might need to do that with this one too... I can just sit and scroll for hours on here!
I feel you on this, it got kinda toxic on social media already (Instagram and Facebook).

Greg has been a breather and safe space for me as of late. Seeing beautiful plants and very helpful advice from others here really awes me. You guys are amazing πŸ’š
