I have some things to tell you...

I am taking a break from posting. Life seems to be getting in the way of my blogging.

I must transfer files to my new laptop. You don't have to work in an IT dept. to know this will be intense.

I must get wireless going.

I must not lose my mind.

I must finish a home project or 10.

I must clean my house. It looks like I live with an army of people which in my mind seems romantic as long as they weren't demanding of me and were clean oh and were men.

I am off to a meeting next week on Tuesday.

Then I am off to a conference later that week. I will be with other technology geeks in a land far far away-maybe in another galaxy. It should be fun and interesting. Hopefully, I will see Spock.

Wish me Happy Birthday now, because I will be there (Geekland) on my birthday - March 18. I would tell you I'm 29 again, but then my son would challenge me reminding me of his age 32 and my age 29 and how that doesn't jive. Anyone want to adopt a son?

I will come visiting your blog in the meantime. Please have coffee and cheesecake ready for me.


I have one more thing to tell you, maybe two. A couple of weeks maybe a month ago I started another blog- a blog I have wanted to start for a long time-even before Journaling Woman. I felt like I was cheating on you by not telling you. And I am not telling you this to burden you with another blog to read. The new blog is something I needed to do. Read it if it interests you. Don't if it doesn't. But, I wanted you to know since you all are now my new BFF's. I want you to know all my secrets. Not really. There isn't much to it yet, but check it out-in your free time: http://theruralhood.blogspot.com/

One last thing, I really really really want a Boxer puppy.

Talk to you soon. Maybe even here if you comment.


Yours,
Teresa

  3. What just when I discover your blog, you go away? What's going on here? You're the second one today. Is it my breath? Something I said?

  4. You have a life besides blogging? Well, I really need to find one of those as well. Hmmm- no break for me yet, but I've thought about it.

    Happy Birthday and don't be gone too long.

  5. Well Teresa....it doesn't surprise me that it has come to this.....We all need a break sometime, and you've been heralding this for some little time, perhaps unknowingly. Things build up...get on top of us...and all seems lost. But of course it's not. We just need a recharge...and that's what you'll be having whilst away. Don't feel bad about it...we'll be there when you get back full of wim, wigour and witality ready to tackle us head on. Enjoy...and have a great Birthday ! x

  19. Oh, I will TOTALLY miss you.
    Hey, I have wanted a boxer since I was a girl and one lived next door to my grandmother. So get two from the litter, okay?

    Have a blessed birthday (mine's the 30th) and hope to talk to you soon!!!

  20. No! Don't go!!! But if you must, I totally understand. I've been MIA the past couple of weeks too with being laptop-less and on vacation and such.

    Don't be gone long!

  21. I have coffee and cheesecake at the ready!

    AND...

    I am willing to share sloppy drooling kisses from my boxer with you.

    Why? Because you are my online mentor and I love you.

    Thats why!

    Enjoy your B day.

  25. Happy Birthday, and have fun at the conference and on your time off!

    Boxer puppies are adorable! Boxers, in general, are great dogs.

  26. Happy Birthday! I hope you enjoy your blogging break. Breaks are also an occasional necessity for me and I do think they help to refresh my mind. In the meantime, I plan to visit your other blog.

  27. Teresa, I saw a button once that read "18 with 20 years experience", so I just keep gaining "experience" not age. :-)
