Delayed on Mylot - But Slowly Catching Up

Greetings everyone. Just wanted to post an update on my lack of mylot participation. Some may already know, but last week as a pretty long work week. I spent almost the entire weekend just resting up. (I guess that means the next free-for-all weekend will have to be a double special, or something. I'll sort it out, but there will be one this weekend I assure you!) I think it was due to the work week but also my not having a vacation since...uh...summer? I think? Well anyways, still resting up a bit too even though I'm doing the two workdays this week before Thanksgiving break. Sorry to friends especially since I haven't been able to catch up on threads and posts, even my own discussions (I thank you all for responding, it is received and very appreciated!) If any of you have a thread or response or two you wish to share with me, feel free to share it here. And if somehow I take another rest/mylot break I'll say this. (Just in case ^^) Have a good thanksgiving and have a good weekend all!

I know how hard it can be to keep up everyday. My internet connection was down large portions of Sunday and hasn't worked well today. Hope you have a restful holiday and don't stress about posting, as we all get behind.

Hey Gamer, Well I was wondering where the free for all was, I didnt really have anything of substance to say, but you know! lol I have been slacking on myLot too, not spending as much time here as I have been. Not sure why really, just doing other things. Feels good! Cant sleep right now so, Im working on getting back to bed. I may not be around on Thursday either, Ive got a meal to cook. So Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! Dont eat so much that your miserable! hehe Bay Lay Gray xx

Lol, my "new" sleep cycle is weird too. I'm staying up more and more until like 2 or 3 am on workdays! Gah! I'm either doing something in real life or responding to major arguments in mylot (both of which take up a bit of time!) I think I'll put down my free-for-all thread and have some live fun with that for a couple of hours. Then its off to do some real relaxing again!

I am too Gamer, I'm not sure why! I think it lapes over to the next day for me. I sleep later because I was up later so therefore I'm not sleepy at night when Im usually in bed. Last night I got about 3 hours sleep. lol I have so much to do, and catching up on myLot was one of them. I'm almost there then off to do some laundry! Yeah what fun! LOL

Good to see you back on line theprogramer, it is good that you give yourself time to rest that is not going to hurt you, it won't take long for you to get back into things here you just take care of yourself.

Thanks Lilaclady. Its still a bit rough getting back in. I'm responding to things from way back, most of them some long discussions or multiple discussions to a thread or two. Hmm, maybe I mylot too hard!? XP Hey its possible!! I'm probably going to relax full this weekend too. But at least I got to help out a couple more people with serious problems (and I think that is the BEST thing ever on mylot. Even better than sharing opinions). Sorry to trail a bit. I'll be seeing you in due time my dear!

Oh no Secret, I've been doing the free-for-all weekends for at least 12, 13? weeks straight now. I missed the last weekend though. Probably the threads get lost in all the other posting on mylot. I'll be back and 120% live soon enough!

Sometimes it's best to take a break. I've done that before and I know that sometimes you need to step away for a while just to get a catch of fresh air. I've done that before and it's actually a good thing. Hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving and get to see your own family. That's always nice.

I actually stepped outside tonight Babo, while cooking things for one thanksgiving event. It was pretty good. Actually rather warm for this time of year. Even layed out on the porch and did some gazing at the clouds and nightsky. Have a good thanksgiving yourself Babo!

Good evening, dear the programer. Welcome back to mylot after your having some rest. I am sure that you would catch up with mylot friends when you are having more time here mylotting. Let me say Happy Thanksgiving to you in advance, my dear friend.

I think the ironic thing is, I'll definitely have some time to respond. Or well I should have the time! Especially after the holiday itself is done! Lots of work and preparation on my end, its nice but still lots of work and rest. So the weekend will definitely see some mylotting in it on my end, along with a couple of other things.

Hey there Progamer, I hope you're not seeing double from all the hours of work. Take good care of yourself. Rest up -- we'll be here when you're ready to jump back into the fray.

I'm sort of back in the fray, but its been me either mega responding to one thread, or its been me responding to responses on my threads! There were a couple of good threads, like a history thread, but my response rate to other threads and friends threads surely took a dive the past few days. But what can I say. Work is work, and rest is needed!

I wasn't on much over the weekend so you didn't miss much from me. We all have to take a break one in awhile. Your next free for all weekend can be a Thanksgiving Break Special!

Its good to have break from mylot coz when you do when you come back you will be able to share lots and lots of things wtih mylotters. I also had my fair share of rest from mylot and did a lot of catching up. I didnt know if it would be enough but I know I have done my part but it was not really the best that I can give.

Indeed, and it seems like I still mylot in extreme fashions even this week! I was up till 3 am yesterday but that was because I was helping a few members out with some real problems. Yea yea...I may sound like an ogre at times... I might seem strict some times... but I'm real and I will help people especially if its something outstanding (and it was). I'll probably take more rest this weekend... ... ... ... But... ...post count 4000 is nearby... Gotta go!

I've really missed you, Gamer, but we sure do all need a break now and then! I fall behind and I'm not working outside the home right now so I don't know how you do it to begin with. Just get some much needed rest when you can and have a great Thanksgiving! I'd say don't eat too much but that would be rather ridiculous, wouldn't it? If there's one time we can all feel free to eat WAY too much it's Turkey Day! Have a good one. Annie

*blush* *continues blushing* Thankssssssss! =) It really touched me you said all that my dear Annie! As for turkey day, I cooked a lot for it, and ate at least a little more than enough. Not a complete stuffing though. Leftovers were fun too.
