Stepping down...
Tue, 09-02-2003 - 5:44pm


Ok, now I know this may come as a shock to most and maybe expected from some. I am officially stepping down from my duties as CL. I am a single mother as you all know, and being on this board while at my fulltime job during the day. Well, I just took on a 2nd job, and feel it is time for me to re-focus my energy into my own life. I have become rather stressed out lately and feel I need to lighten my load, so to speak. I feel like I need to be here day and night, when actually I do not. Now, that I have taken this week to step back and see where I am needed, I see it is the right decision.

I will still post occasionally as a member, so do not worry and you all can email me anytime for advice if you need to. I am still here. I just do not think being CL is where I need to be right now. I appreciate all the great people here and the positive vibe I have helped to put out along with other great members. It has been a blast, and a short one, but I need to let some of my stress go for now. I used to post often on other boards and now I only have time to post here. SO, I am going to take some pressure off myself and let this go to someone who has maybe more time, more experience to offer you all.

You all seem to be doing fine and I am sure Marie will agree you all run this board yourselves. I am glad to have been a part of it for the time I was. Thank you all and let me know if you need anything at all. I will be around, lurking. giggles.( Oh NO! I am an official lurker!!)

All my love to you all and I wish you all the best in everything you do!!! Remember, chin up, chest out, and smile....cause you never know who is looking!!!!!!
