My condolences Toffee! Holler if you want to talk. Glad you are feeling better, too!

It's not you, it's me.

Well, maybe it's some of you a little bit...

I'm going to be taking a break from DC for a bit. Last week, on the days I spent very little time here, I got a lot of stuff done at home. Unfortunately, just like chocolate, I don't know how to be satisfied with just a small "bite" of DC. I'll still be eating chocolate, but I won't be here for a while. Not saying I won't pop on to check around for a recipe or cooking hint, but I have to take a break from being chatty on the boards. DC is my fun place to be, and when I'm thinking about how much work I should be doing it just seems like a little less fun. Also not so fun is the way some posts are getting a bit like snipping back and forth at each other, not fun stuff. Please, if you have a beef with what someone said to you take your bickering to PMs please, and leave the rest of us out of your playground brawls.

You all have a great summer. When I come back I hope I can cheerfully report that I have divested Himself and me of many unnecessary items in our garage/yard sale, that my gardens are all cleaned out and mulched, and that the rooms in the house have all been patched and painted. On a good note, Himself took inventory of paint today and said we have to get more for the porch rails and flooring. Good man. (Amazing what can happen when you tell him you aren't cooking or washing his clothes until he get some work done around here. ) AND what would make me completely ecstatic would be my first post showing a photo of a "For Sale" sign in our front yard. Nah, I'm not going to be away THAT long!

I have PM notifications set up so feel free to zip me a note if anything earth-shattering happens around here. Or just to say hi.

Later!

CG, I have taken a few breaks like that in the last few years. I will miss you terribly but you can be sure one of those PM's will be from me.

Take care.

Good luck on purging your home for your long awaited Yard Sale. I hope it is a big success and brings in tons of money for your move back home to Ohio.

You are right when you say there has been a lot of sniping and snide remarks lately. Arguing for arguments sake. It does take the fun out of the site. Have a fun summer and hope to see you back soon.
