Gimme A Break

Hello everyone...

I am going to take a break from journals for a while.  I have turned off my alerts, too.  This year didn't start off as well as I hoped it would, and I need to just 'be' for a while.

It also seems silly with the computer acting up to keep getting alerts that I can't keep up with at this time. 

I welcome emails though, and will try to stay on top of those as best I can.

Stay safe and happy, and please email me if you think there is something I need to know about in someone's life.

be well,
Dawn

Awwww I am very sad to read this tonight Dawn.I do hope and pray things will get better for you healthwise etc.Everyone knows when they need to rest and take time out.It does take time to keep up to alerts and I understand just where you are coming from.Lots of people have had computer problems of late ,as you know I have myself.This also makes things much harder.Know you are in my thoughts and my prayers will be continuous  for you always.Have a lovely rest I hope the children and all the family are well.I will keep my alerts on for you,in case you come back sooner than expected.For now byeeeeeeee  and enjoy your well earned rest.Take Care God Bless Kath astoriasand http://journals.aol.co.uk/astoriasand/MYSIMPLERHYMES

Sorry to hear you'll be gone for a while, Dawn, but hope it helps to put your year on a better footing. Hope it also gives you an opportunity to sort out the PC.

See you soon,

All your 'lerts are belong to us!!!

Now, enjoy the break.  I'd recommend golf to help you relax, but that doesn't help one damn bit.  So, play some pinball...  down at the bar...  The bar where the Jersey mobsters hang out.  

You'll thank me later.

I'm sorry you're feeling the need to take a break, but that's okay.  I hope that you get the rest you need.  We all need a break once in a while from journaling, I think.  Please take care!

I'm a very strong proponent of "collapsing in a heap" for awhile when needed.  Stay as long as you need to I say, and return all the better for it.  xo CATHY
