the concession

I think I’ve finally hit critical mess. My wireless (to continue with this sad theme) is simply not working. To make it even more fun, the computer that is hard wired is having troubles too. So…

The kids and I are leaving this morning to spend five days at the lake with my mom. For all of you who are new to RC, my mom has a house on a lake about three hours from here that is a retreat like no other. I need a retreat like no other, and I’m not too proud to admit to it. So I’ll be taking a little blogging sabbatical until next Tuesday, at which point I’ll be back full force, even if I have to do what I’m doing now, which is writing in Word and cutting and pasting into Blogger, in the three point two seconds I have before it boots my butt off. (This whole blogging thing has done wonders for my computer skills, not to mention my invective level).

Obviously, I haven’t been able to do any blog reading, and I know I’m falling hopelessly behind. This isn’t by choice, believe me. I’ll get this figured out - and soon. In the meantime, have a great week and don’t forget about me, okay?

Is my insecurity showing through? No? Good. Yes? Damn. (One more bloody hit for the cuss-o-meter).

I hate that thing

They say it is always darkest before the dawn. I trust these days will be the beginning of the dawn. I know how rejuvenating your times at the lake have always been and trust this will be true now also. ENJOY.

Frances said...

Have a great time and recharge those batteries. Hope your mother is going to be there to continue the mummying.

Frances said...

I just wrote garbage, sorry. I meant to say hope the mummying will continue and do you a lot of good. What a klutz! I don't even have the excuse of network problems just at the moment! LOL
See you soon.

Sabbatical? That's not a sabbatical. That's a blink.

Enjoy your break.

You and the Cuss O meter! LOL! big time!

belle said...

When you do make it back, swing by mine and collect your award :o)

Joy T. said...

I'm having internet problems. Maybe I'll come over here and curse it's existence. That way it will save my cuss-o-meter percentage from going up...since yours is already so high anyway :o) Have a great retreat!

the mother of this lot said...

Award waiting when you get back. You'll find it in the 'Friend' section on the second floor.

Have a great time at the lake and let your Mum look after you. Enjoy getting away from all the crappy stuff that's going on.

Take care,

Hi
My first visit. Hope your retreat was good.
I am dreading the computer crashing or something. I have become so addicted to blogging and visiting all my new friends most nights! Husband wants to fiddle with it and get a wireless connection. Oh help!
