don't mind me, I'm just embracing my inner hermit. I'm alive, doing very well in fact. Just disconnected from my Internet umbilical.
Phone/text is the most likely way to get a hold of me these days. Not using IM on any regular basis for the last month. Only checking email when I'm sitting at the computer, which is pretty much only during extended work hours (7 am - 7pm, weekdays, sporadic if at all on weekends)
I'm saying this only now that I've taken a bit more than a month to break the habit without any hoopla and I find that I don't miss it too much. Not bad for being an Internet junkie for the last dozen or more years.
What am I doing with myself instead? I'm writing and I'm knitting/spinning for now, only because it's been a long winter. Now that the weather is making it more comfortable to be outside, I'm going to be cleaning up space in the garage for my new tools and putting in a more functional workshop area. Brian's going to be doing a lot of work on the MG so he can use it for good weather commuting (42 MPG is -very- attractive these days!). The sand blasting cabinet will allow me to clean up some of the small parts and provide me with a great avenue for artwork.
Other than that, my current chant has been "plasma cutters, MIG welders, and metal, Oh My!" My sister-in-law seems to be rather pleased that we have so much in common these days.
Got a little chatty, just wanted to explain to those who have been asking if I'm alright. The answer is "better than ever, thank you!"
