If I've learned anything about stress and relaxation in the past few weeks, it's to take time off when I need it. Thus, I won't be posting until next Monday. In answer to Coco's question, my dog isn't sick; he's just old. But Murphy, his companion (and ours) for the last nine years, died in December--two months after my mother.
Anyway, for a number of reasons, I am stressed out, which is only a bit ironic given that I'm writing a series on stress and relaxation techniques. I need a bit of breathing room, and I need to practice the techniques I've been learning.
So...I'm going to take off the next two days. And since I don't usually blog on the weekends, I'll be back on Monday.
I will keep the comments moderation "off," but please be gentle with each other. I believe that one of my responsibilities as the "comments moderator" is to make sure I support everyone's right to have his/her own opinion. In my absence, I would appreciate it if you would all moderate yourselves.
Finally, I will be offline, so I won't be reading the comments until the weekend, or visiting other blogs online. See you on Monday!
