Unplugging


Well, I'm detoxing this weekend.

No, there isn't a big secret I've been keeping.  I'm not giving up lattes, Panera Bread shortbread cookies, or my fascination with Sawyer from LOST.

I'm being sent on a "Tres Dias" weekend.  I leave tonight.  And the rules for going to Tres Dias are:  no computer, no cell phone, no watch.  Yes, I'm serious.  I can't take anything but me, my clothes and personal grooming items.   Some friends at church sponsored Larry to go last weekend, and me this weekend.  So...you may wonder how I'm feeling about this.  ELATED! 

As much as I love my "connections" to everyone in this world, I also crave sacred times of solitude and this is going to be one such time.  I don't know all that is in store for this weekend but I do know ahead of time, I'm going to love it!  

I'll still be posting here every day this weekend, so keep checking here, in fact I am setting up to post TWICE A DAY Friday, Saturday and Sunday this week!!!   This is the beauty of pre-scheduled posting.  :)   Why do I do this?  I'm anal.  Stats.  They go way down for bloggers who don't post every day.  And I want to keep everybody coming here, from Seattle to Singapore.  Yeah, I'm not one of those people who writes just for myself.  I create with the hope of inspiring change, laughs, and hope.  I have a private journal that is reserved for writing simply for myself.   This is for writing the things that would otherwise get me fired or de-frocked.   So this is why I always post at least a little something here everyday and don't ever leave a gap.  Anything you read on successful blogging says that effective bloggers write with consistency.  

Comment moderation has been turned off so anyone can comment without waiting for it to be posted.  I've thought about this long and hard and decided to turn it off permanently for a while.  It has been so long since I've had any issues with nimnuls commenters.   [Knock on wood...]  So until further notice, it's officially off.  Have fun.  :)   And if anyone leaves any harrassing or vulgur comments on my page while I'm gone, I'll get your IP address and have a bunch of Rosie O'Donnell dolls sent to your house when I get back pray that God would get ahold of you and change your life. 

I'll have plenty of cool stuff for you to read while I'm gone ("Double stuff") and fresh posts will be forthcoming when I get back late Sunday night/Monday morning.  And...I will resume with the "Just Say It" series on Monday.  Don't miss a thing folks, because here on http://www.deannashrodes.com/ you get double the blog for your buck. 

Ugh, that's right, you never paid anything to come here. 

Never mind. 

I think I need a drink brownie.

Bye.

Is it wrong that I kind of want a Rose O'Donnell doll now? LOL!!!

And a fascination with Sawyer from Lost is not nearly as messed up as my fascination with Sylar from Heroes [my husband's and my standing weekly date!]...so wrong on so many levels :o).
