Time to take a break

Hello friends, 

I think it's time to take a break. Sometimes you need to refresh.  I am moving so it a lot getting ready for that.

I would like to apologize for anything that I have done or said lately and in the past. We all get a little angry at times. So no hard feelings. 

I hope you all have a nice summer and take care.

Don't take them seriously Kathy.  Most of them just need a place to vent.

I think that is true. Good statement. Most just want to say what they think or feel. Good or bad.

I try not to take any of it personally.

I have thought of doing the same at times, Kathy.

But I guess I'm a glutton for punishment and it's hard to stay away from my hobby of trying to educate and refute liberals and their nutty views.

But don't stay away for good, things should be warming up politically by this time next year, and discussions should be lively.

Till you return, take care and be safe. jrSmiley_15_smiley_image.gif

I like angry Kathleen.  haha

Don't apologize for anything, though I have said things I probably shouldn't have.

Moving can be a pain. One little trick I learned, if you can, hire some college kids to move the large stuff.

Hi Kathleen. Life is too short to take what happens on NT too seriously. Sometimes the negativity gets to me and I tell myself I need to take a hiatus. But then I start thinking, why give any detractors I may have the satisfaction, and I'm not a quitter. But short battery charges are okay.

Good luck Kathleen.  We are also moving soon and only have limited energy to visit NT lately.  I can't even watch news most of the time because even that causes my stress level and anxiety to go up.  We are getting house ready to sell and moving to Washington state, and it is soooooo stressful.  I've never lived anywhere in my life as long as I have in this house, where my daughter died and many memories are.  So much going through my mind at any given time.  I wish you the best.   And no need to apologize, we all have our moments here even without the moving!  I also think its a safe place to vent here.

Best wishes for your move. I just moved last month from my home of 26 years. It was mind boggling going through all my stuff ! See you when you get back.

If there is anything I can do, please contact me via PN. 

Somehow I feel I dropped the ball but didn't realize it.

Hey B … we have not talked since the holidays, and I know things have been stressful with your husbands illness, your daughter leaving the house for college .. now the stress of moving.

Promise me that in the chaos you will take care of YOU - no one benefits if you let your health suffer ..

Remember I am always here, just pick up the phone … you can vent to me all you want!  I took a break, and it worked wonders, I think I have my perspective back and not quite so combative .. come back when you get settled.  Until then:

Peace Love and Hugs my friend : )

Don't stay away too long.  What you have been posting on NT has in my opinion been a valuable asset, and we will miss you.

Good luck Kathy! In the past 20 months I've moved four times...yep, four times in less than two years. I'm tired...jrSmiley_30_smiley_image.gif
