So I've had lots of people notice that I'm not online much anymore. I know most of you know I've had lots of issues and just general stress that's been keeping me offline. That is not the whole story though.

As much as I've loved being online and making lots of friends and discovering new things, it's eaten away at a lot of time I should be spending else where. I'm not saying anything bad 'bout spending lots of time online. I know lots of people who consider this a very big part of their lives and fit it into their schedule very well, and I think that's just shiny. But for me it's just been an escape and I really need to stop hiding from my life. I'm a wife, I'm employed, I have a loving fam, I have lots of friends who are not online, I go to church, I have a house to take care of, I have animals, I have bad health issues. All these things are very important and I have been neglecting. This doesn't mean that all the wonderful people I have met online don't mean anything to me, you all do very much, some more than you could ever know. It's just I have to focus on my life. I think half my stress is just all that has caught up with me after being avoided for so long. I used to spend literally all day online or every spare moment when I had so many other things that really needed my attention. When I was doing other things I just couldn't wait to get back online. I really feel I need to get back to those things.

Don't get me wrong, I'll still be here everyday, I just won't be able to stay on as much as I used to, therefore not as active in the online community. This doesn't mean I won't email or respond to messages or comments, I'll just be less active in other things; blogging, reading blogs, forums, bulletins, and the like. I'd still like to very much keep in contact with everyone so if you want my number or address (one of my secret loves is snail-mail) to keep in better contact, feel free to message or email me. Or just keep messaging or emailing me, I'll try my very best to keep that regular. As much as I'm gonna miss my online fun, I gotta start taking my responsibilities seriously and realize that I can't keep hiding from it all.

Thank you for all your love and understanding!

I hate how we're all scattering. Makes me sad. But I suppose time marches on.

Best of luck and *hugs* Roxy.
Come back when you can.

Seems like we're dropping like flies, honey-chile. I get what you're saying. I will carry the hey day we all enjoyed over the last couple years with me forever. But life must be dealt with. I will be cheering you on from here in the Mid-west. But as MsB sez, Freefall, heal thyself. Oh, that reminds me, I owe her an email. You can catch me anytime at If ever you need to chew the fat off my ear. I luv mixed metaphors. Peace.

I have recently wondered what I did with my time before Firefly and I know where you are coming from.

You take care of yourself. We'll be here when you wake up.
