Going On A Diet (A computer one, that is!)

I've been pretty scarce around here lately (and when I say here, I mean on blogs, at Facebook, on Rwitter, and just about everywhere else I generally hang out on the computer). I have missed you all, but my life right now shows no indication of slowing down any time in the next week or so.

You see, we're moving. No - it's not a long-distance move (in fact, we're only going about a dozen miles away), but we have been living in this house for 13 years. And we're downsizing. In other words we (mostly I) have a lot of work to do.

We have to be out of our house by mid-April - though we are SERIOUSLY aiming for some time during spring break (which runs from April 2 to 11 - preferably in the first half of that time). I haven't done a lot yet as far as packing. So I need time to work on this (and less temptation).

So, I'm going on a "computer diet." Starting after I go to bed Friday evening, I won't be on Facebook, Twitter, (except possibly an occasional tweet/FB status update from my cell phone), blogs, FaithWriters, or, generally, the internet. I WILL be checking my email, but I will try to limit my email time to an hour a day.

How long will this go on? I'm really not sure. My guess is somewhere between one and two weeks. But I'll see. Once I feel like I HAVE the time, I WILL be back.

I truly appreciate your prayers! Blessings to you all.

Paving Rough Roads With God's Presence


  1. I already miss you, and I'll miss you even more. Praying for a smooth move. :)

  2. Take care!!! We're with you in spirit!

  3. Being in the same process myself, I understanding. I'd bet, that like me, you'll be soooooo happy to get settled and back to whatever "normal" represents.

    Blessings on you, my friend.

  4. (((Joanne))) Miss you! Thoughts and prayers are with you for a smooth transition into your new home!

    Abundant Blessings, Rita

My One Word: 2016 and 2017

Most who know me know I am a very goal-oriented person (in fact, I already shared my goal wrap-up for 2016 and my new ones for 2017 on this...
