Back to the past


I am going back to the '80's.


No, I am not going to get big hair. I am going back to the time when there were no cell phones, no computers, no instant means of communication. It's all making me crazy. So, beginning today...my phone is off. Stuck in my purse, just in case I have an emergency on the road. Just like in that decade, I have a house phone. If you need to talk to me, call it. If I am home, I will answer.


I will be here from time to time, checking what everyone is up to, and I will post now and then.


This is necessary to my survival and sanity.


Hugs. :)

Go for it! I hate the phone. I have a cell phone in my handbag just for emergencies. It's turned off. I don't know the # and don't want to.

Good for you! I totally agree! Plus read instead of watching TV !!

Sometimes we have to declutter ourselves with all of the technology to get back to "self". Good for you!

Yep...you are in dire need of "me" time. I get like this once in a while too and have to actually get mad at my family so they will give me a day's peace. I have to have some quiet time to recharge my batteries on a regular basis or I feel like a hollow shell. Stick to your guns! Big hugs. (good advice...do some reading and be a couch potato for a couple days. I promise the world won't end)

Survival and sanity are what it's all about. We need to take care of 'us'. I'll be in touch, and hope to hear from you from time to time. Don't disappear, OK? As always, I want the best for you.

Been thinking about you a lot and hope that everything is going OK for you and yours. Remember to take time out for JUST YOU...kick back with a drink and watch a good movie in your jammies. Does wonders for the soul. Big hugs. Love, Charlotte

Sorry, I've been away for awhile and missed a lot of what was going on with you and your life. I hope to hear from you now and then and that things get better. Take care.

Hope to see you back soon.

Ok...now I'm getting a little concerned. I'm missing you. Wish I could come out there, throw on a pot of coffee and bake some cinnamon rolls...that combination seems to fix everything right up. Big hugs. Love, Charlotte

Thanks for all your prayers regarding my brother Jimmy. I hope you're doing okay! You're wise to turn off the phone--especially when you're in the car---

Miss you, xooxox and talk to you later (FB style)
