Taking a break

Hi everyone! I hope you don't mind me starting a thread about myself, but I just wanted to let you know about my planned temporary absence. This was just easier than PM or profile messaging everyone and then worrying I have forgotten someone.

We are finally getting our carpets and floors in Thursday and Friday of this week - two months plus after the flood! We have so much to do to get ready and I also have to take it easy with my leg, so DH and I have decided to turn off our computers as of tonight for a couple of weeks to get reorganized. Besides getting our furniture back the way we want it, we will have about 60 boxes coming from storage that we have to unpack and put away (10 are my cookbooks) and I have a a wedding cake due on the 24th and the pan and boards I need are in those boxes!

So, I didn't want to worry anyone that I had dropped out of existence and I know how much we all worry when someone isn't around. That's one of the things about DC - we care and we make ourselves accountable to each other.

Have a good few weeks without me and I will report back when we are settled.

Thanks, DC family. I love you all very much!

Good luck!
I'm attempting one myself but it's not working out so well!

however I believe that 2-3 hours a day is MUCH improvement over 10 doncha think??
Not that there's anything wrong with that.....

What do you mean have a good few weeks without you? They can't possibly be truly good without you! I'm just thankful you are going to be away because of your house though, and not for health reasons. Be sure to take care of your health, and know that I am continuing to pray for that.

I'm so glad you will finally be able to get your house in order. I felt so bad for the trouble you both had to go through.

Come back to us as soon as you can. We will miss you!
