I'll be taking a break for a while

It seems that I've been spending way too much time in front of the computer, and spending way too little time doing things I love.... like getting out there taking photographs.
So, I've decided to break away for a while, and do a little soul searching.

Since I'll be without internet for a couple of weeks, after my move in a few days I've decided that this is the perfect time to start.

So, before anyone started questioning what's up I thought that I'd let you all know. My last post, for now will be Friday evening, or earlier if I decide.

If, or when I decide to come back I'll most likely limit my posts to the Pentax Film forums. It's the only forum I've truly enjoyed participating in lately.

I would like to point out that my decision isn't based on the contest, although it didn't help with my decision.
Plus it isn't based on any members. It's just time for me to take the break.

Last summer I had a 2-3 week gap during which I barely used the computer- I can assure you, those were among the best weeks of that year for me

I hope you enjoy your time off! See you around!

Have a good break - in "modern" times it really can be refreshing to get off the internet for a few weeks. I look forward to your posts in the film forum when you come back

Enjoy, Little Laker, we'll miss you! I hope the new house proves comfy.

I've been resolved to spend more solid blocks of time offline, myself.

Not like today, though. Today my offline time was because I left a window open and the temperature dropped, thus rendering my back unhappy-with-sitting-and-typing. )

Thanks everyone,
I have tomorrow off work, so if they're out of the house by noon I'll be mostly moved in by this time tomorrow night.

Thanks for the chuckle Ira, and I believe that my Doctor is the one whom told me to get out and enjoy life more often.
So I'm just obeying Doctors orders..... although it's a first

Thanks RML,
I wish that I couldn't relate to the back. My chiropractor will love me on Tuesday when I have an appointment. My GF didn't threaten to kill me this time, since she knew the move would just dislocate everything over again right away.

Thanks seacapt,
We haven't tried the cookbook yet. However, with this time off we'll hopefully get a chance to.



I'm not sure if I'll make it back on-line tomorrow or not. If I don't see you all soon

A fair moving day to you, then, Laker. Don't forget to breathe.
