I-Need-Therapy-Thursday: Time Out

I'm so bummed.

After 15 years of being away, I'm starting back to work again soon.

And while the thought of giving up a good chunk of "free" time is making me bummed, part of what bothers me is that I think I'm going to have to cut back in bloggy world.

I think, I think I'll be able to continue with my regular schedule. But one of the things that eats up a BIG chunk of time with all this is replying to comments. Not because I'm writing well thought-out responses, but b/c my stinkin' internet is so bad that every time I hit "reply", I have to wait like 30 seconds to get the box, and then as soon as I type out the first few words, the whole box goes up in smoke and I have to start over again.


So, although it makes me feel sad, and incredibly rude, I'm probably going to have to stop replying to comments.  Wah.

Now, if you need me to answer a question, you can always email me ( or leave me a message on FB, and I'll get back to you.  And I'll still be reading all your wonderful comments, I just won't be replying to them.

I'm so sorry.

I hope we can still be friends.
