I'll be back in Spring?

I've been off-line. My old computer died. I've been trying to keep in touch by using the library computer and my not so smart, smart phone.

Unfortunately my smart phone hasn't helped much. I either couldn't see or log into 1/3 of the blogs on my blog roll. I couldn't see many of your pictures, etc. It was also unreliable with a ton of error signs, etc. In other words my smart phone was too unreliable and inadequate for blogging and commenting on blogs. Therefore, I have decided not to renew my smart phone in January and to put the money towards necessitates like food instead.

As for using the library computer, although Rochester hasn't had any real major snow storms, it's been an unusually cold and snowy winter. Rochester broke the December snowfall record. Like most Rochesterians, I've been hibernating this winter and so have rarely gone to the library.

I might be back in spring or summer, but frankly it's very difficult to maintain a blog and stay in touch with my blog buddies without a computer. Hopefully I'll be back soon. I hope you don't take me off your blog roll, Twitter, etc.

I want to thank all my blog buddies especially those on my blog roll. Everyone on my blog roll has enriched my life in one way or another. When I first started this blog I never thought I could have real friends by blogging, but I now believe that I have found some. A HUGE THANKS to EVERYONE on my blog roll for enriching my life!!!

I'll check my blog responses and email in a few weeks, and then I'll be off-line for winter. Have a nice winter!

P.S. I'm still seeing a counselor and working to get my life back on track after years of depression. As always prayers and/or good thoughts are greatly appreciated!

You will be missed and I hope to see you back soon! I don't know how I'd missed that you are on twitter - but you have one more follower there now too :).

Prayers for an early Spring!

You will NEVER be deleted from my blogroll! I hope you get a new computer soon! See you when you can get back online. Love you!

I'm sure your life will turn around soon, and you will be able to blog to your hearts content. until then you will remain in my feeds.

Wish you all that you wish yourself ;)

Hi Rebecca, Thanks!... An early Spring would be great.
Hi Meleah Rebeccah,
Thanks for keeping me on your blogroll and for always being so very kind to me. x
Hi Babs,
Well, now that I've been off line I've found a lot of time for other things. It's not so bad.
Hi LB,
I wish you could visit me in Rochester. We have lots of snow this year, and you love snow. I'd be tempted to kidnap you though. ;)

Hurry back soon!!!

HP said...

Ah, I just got back online.....had too many demands on me to keep blogging but hope to be more regular now.

Look forward to seeing you back later in the year.

Hi Doc. Deb,

Thanks, but I find I have more time being off-line. Might keep this up for awhile. ;)
Hi HP,

Good to hear from you. I know what you mean... I just popped in and not visiting other blogs yet. Not sure when I'll be back.

April 4th - Quick Up Date – I’m doing well. Have not been online in a long time. Still no computer. I find that I have much more time for myself and live more in the present. It’s a good thing so I’m going to keep away from the computer for awhile longer. Miss you guys!!! BTY – We didn’t have a blizzard or maga snow storm in Rochester. I find that very strange. LOL.

I hope things are going well for you as you start your spring and go into summer. Its getting colder here so it must be getting warmer where you are. best wishes

Hi S'onnie,

We have had a lot of rain so far this spring, but next week we will dry out. I hope you are well. Stay warm during winter. Thanks for thinking of me. ;)

I hope you are feeling better. When I started counseling, my counselor insisted that I start working out as well. More of a holistic approach, and it seemed to work out. I was initially offended by the suggestion (I look like I am in good shape), but really, I guess I wasn't because I feel tons better. My body does not look terribly different, but I wonder if my insides look different.

Hi Leesa,

Good to hear from you! I'm glad that that working out helps you. I stopped walking during winter, (not crazy about walking in all the snow & ice we get here). I just took my first walk in a long while today. I did well for me. Thanks for the advice! It got me on the move again. ;)
