My normal pain and fatigue levels are there, but a lot easier to maintain without added things to deal with.

I am going back into the web business! I met a woman through my blog who also has suffered years of chronic pain, wants to feel like she is contributing but like me can't take an outside job. She is going to do all the marketing and client handling while I do the tech. We will mainly get small businesses hooked up with Social Media. (Mod's I hope this doesn't seem like an advertisement because it is no way intended to be. We aren't even started yet and I won't mention any names .

I just wanted to let my friends here know that if I am gone for periods of time it is probably more that I am genuinely happy doing work I love instead of being in the hospital or just in too much pain to type.

Oh yes, I have given up the cake business altogether and could not be happier. It was just getting too hard with my hands and fatigue.

So, I will see you all when I can!
I've missed ya! Sheesh.
Take good care of Lil' Monkey. That's so cool you named your cat after me. That's a telling sign all's well. Bahaving as intended. All over the place.

It's better sometimes to let things go that you've loved to do for years.
If it's gotten to the point where you no longer enjoy it.That's when it starts being a daunting job.It stresses you. That's not good for the pain.

I'm happy your on a new journey that's on your terms.
Send me a PM when you get the chance. I like reading blogs. Sad but true. The things people say make me laugh.

See you when you get back and remember the lights on 24/7.

Munky.

Hello folks!

Sorry I' ve been MIA for awhile. My computer developed a dislike to my mouse. It's still not all right yet.

Having my register scanned and paying for repairs made cost me double what I should have to pay (operator error). I finally bought a new mouse. It works some, but not enough.

I can get online without my mouse freezing at least once a day.

Grrr.

I miss you all!!

Hi, A. Bea & all -- Thanks for asking, Bea. Have been doing battle with software and hardware, discovered there are lemons to be had when investing in a new pc. After throwing up hands, crying Uncle, and spending way too much time in the process, I've finally (I think) got this newest pc (a non-lemon this time, fingers crossed) pinned to the mat, along with its co-conspirator, Windows 10. Got out of the DC habit, but still lurk at threads with interesting topics. Still enjoy Aunt Bea's common-sense posts.

Carry on, Troops!

Glad to hear that you are well, I was getting concerned!

Pop in from time to time and let us know what is happening in your corner of the world!

I've been missing Aunt Bea. She hasn't posted since August 4. Anyone heard anything?

Not I. I didn't even notice until you said it...bad me. In my defense, I've been doing more skimming and less reading here lately. Trying to keep busy, but we all know how THAT goes!

Did you send her a PM? She's always been pretty quick about getting back to me when I have.
