Going to have to ween myself off

October 5th, 2005, 12:15 PM
For the next two weeks I need to work at weening myself off this forum. Not because I want to, but rather because I have to. :sad: As of this morning I have resigned my cushy government job to take a position with a private sector company. As a result, the 4 to 5 hours a day I spend with this forum running in the background and the ability to check for new posts every 15 mins are just about up.

I hope to get on as often as I can in the evenings / weekends. As well, I will keep trying to post as many pics of Monty, Lucy and Jack as I can.

Catch you all in the funny papers.

No one should have to sacrifice the internet merely to work. :grouphug:

. . . . . . wisdom as written from my office computer in my cushy private sector job. :highfive:

Ha ha, normally that would be true, however, best I can tell, my internet access will be far more limited than it presently is from my "I can't believe this is what passes for work" government job.

Gosh, that is a harsh dose of reality for sure. I'm sure you will find ways to get your fix, and evenings and weekends aren't too bad--once you make it past the initial withdrawal. I'm very sorry most of all to hear that you will have to work at work. What prompted your resignation?

If I go in the internet at work its instant firing. So I to have to save my time for home time, and I also need to compete with hubby and kids. Of course this forum is far more improtant than anything they are doing. You will cope I know you will. It gets easier with time. :)

...and I also need to compete with hubby and kids...
My solution ... home network/multiple computers. ;)

Ya, I really need to do that myself. I am hooked on here. I was ok for a while and I am bad again. I have it in my background all the time and am checking it more than I am working lately. :crazy:

Just go back to school. All that procrastination time is spent here... :D

I hope your new job works out. (If it really works out, we'll probably start seeing you here again, eh?)

I'm moving from a (relatively boring) financial analyst job to a quality control manager position with a local manufacturing company (getting back to using my engineering degree). Job will involve a lot of "plant" time, thus not a lot of desk time.

Prin, I did the university thing for 9 years -- best job in town, if only it paid better! I'll still be around, just not for 8+ hours a day :)
