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.
