I hate self imposed competitions. They seem so silly to me. In the same school as wasting your anger when you could expend your energy elsewhere that will do some good.

Okay, I am off my soapbox.
You just said something to get your post count up, huh?
just kidding of course.

You know, some people do just that!

Not sure why, is there a prize or something?

Maybe they are the hoarders of Internet forums. They just want to make sure they have enough posts in case anything happens

Hmm. Hoarders. That makes sense.

And it doesn't take up quite as much room as newspapers, cats, or pizza boxes.

Hi everyone,
I just was in doing some clean-up (I have been getting subscription notifications and wanted to cancel that). I didn't want anyone to think I was lurking.

Things are changing in the Beier house. We have adopted a little kitten named "Monkey" and she really is one. I have started back at the Y, walking in the pool and during the week walk my neighbour's dog to work. TB's job situation is still shaky. They do shift picks this coming week - there are 97 shifts and he is number 98. If no one takes a really lousy retirement package or they don't make another shift, he will be put on casual and lose benefits (but not seniority) as of the end of the month. My osteoarthritis is progressing at a very fast rate and I have been having more vertigo problems so am not driving. But I am enjoying my life, learning how to use my new camera, visiting friends I haven't seen for ages and not being tied to the computer so much.

This is my official last post. My email address should be on my profile, but if not, I will still get PM's and you can send me your address if you want to stay in touch. I am also on FaceBook as Laurie Beier so you can get me there. I am still there because it is easier to go through everything in a short time.

I will miss all my friends here, but I know leaving is the right thing to do for "ME". It is probably the first time in my life I have done so and it feels great. Not that DC wasn't for me, it has been. I have just found it different in the last while and I needed to focus more on my friends and family here.

Love to you all,
LP

PS I won't see replies here but will by PM or email

I too am going MIA. I have asked to be unsubbed, for now. Life has thrown me too many curve balls as of late. I have LOVED, LOVED, LOVED being part of this forum. I have learned so much, had so much fun, and made some very good friends. I will miss all of you and hope that everyone continues to play with their food.

I have axed my FB accounts, but you can still reach me by email.

Take care everyone!

That's ok CWS. I am one who will miss you. And the girls. You can always come back when it is less hectic.
