What is the best word to use for taking a leave of absence? I kinda like sabbatical. It sounds so restful, which is exactly what I've been searching for.
I sat down one day and listed everything I've got going on. The list was way longer than I care to mention. The result? I decided there was just too much life happening in front of a screen. Time to cut down on blog posts and comments, ignore google alerts, Facebook messages and Twitter "tweets", and save those nonessential e-mails for the next day.
Let's face it, do I really need to know who's having a bad day on Twitter, who sent me a virtual drink on Facebook (what's up with that?) and which thousand "watercolor portraits" posts to read or write. Of course I plan to check in on my favorite blogs periodically. You know who you are, don't you? (Manon, Vikki, Robin, Linda, Elaine, Kristy, 100 swallows).
So, if you don't hear from me in a while, it just means I'm getting my groove back!
