Hello Everyone!

I apologize for my long absence from TP. Actually, it has been a long absence from the computer too. My computer has been fine and I'm doing pretty well myself. In all honesty, I needed a bit of a break away from the internet - but the longer I kept away, the easier it was to stay away. (This coming from the one who hounded other TP members on that other site, which won't be mentioned (FB), I've been just as negligent.) Bad me.

Late last night, my time, I received a very nice e-mail from Peter. It stated 'a lot of people on TP miss me and would love to know I'm ok, including himself'. I am 'ok', have had some physical issues to deal with and things are much better. I won't go into detail as it doesn't matter in the long run.

I will be back because I have a lot of money to spend for the TP Foundation and a lot of moderating to do. I also have a lot of Travel Guide Health stuff to bring up to date. At least my computer and I have had a bit of rest...

See you all soon!!

*hugs* Welcome back!

I had been wondering where you'd gone off to.

It's hard to find the right balance sometimes; to not give in to the lure of reloading all your sites again and again to see if anything changed in the last five minutes, and to not care too much about some of the things happening on there. And then it's good to know you can do completely without.
But all the same, still lots of good to be found online, and people who appreciate your presence. :)

Thank you Kelly and Sander!

Kelly - I am back and it's a good thing. I will have a couple of weeks where I may not be around as we need to spend time with a friend who is having 5-6 coronary arteries bypassed in the next few weeks. We've been friends for 40 years so I need to be there to help take care of his parents also.

Sander - thanks for the hugs! You are so right about finding balance at times. I'm starting to reclaim my balance and TP is part of it! It's been a nice break but also has also made me miss so many of my online friends. Sorry I can't blame it all on 'traveling the world' but I did travel my mind and body. Now, I get to travel the world again - part of it anyway.

Again, thank you both!

Isa sneaks back in here too...

I guess I lied about being back, though I had the greatest of intentions but failed in the follow through.

It has been one of those very 'up and down' years - mostly down on a physical level. Such is life. In the not so distant past (meaning a few weeks ago), medical discoveries were (finally) made and I'm back on the road at warp speed - relatively speaking - and becoming the 'lovable, wonderful, talkative, smiling, laughing' Isa I once was. I'm extremely pleased as are several others. They keep telling me I look, sound and act like my 'previous' self. Who am I to argue with that!

Okay, you can all stop laughing at the 'lovable, wonderful, talkative, smiling, laughing' part. Heeheehee.

Thanks everyone and (hopefully) I will stick to my return in earnest this time around!

Purdy, Dad is just fine and been my rock through everything. What a guy - think I'll keep him!

*leaves a pile of hugs* I'm really glad to hear so! There's been a noticeable Isa-shaped hole in the forum, and I look forward to that being filled again. :)
