OT - Temporary Goodbye

Hi everyone :waving:

I’ve decided I need to quit my current job before I have a nervous breakdown. :frowning: I can’t face another tax season or any kind of accounting right now.

Unfortunately, the only internet access I have is at work, so I’m going to have to say Goodbye to you all for a while. I will (eventually) get internet service at home. Right now I’m feeling VERY computer illiterate on top of feeling useless at my job.

I want to thank you all for your friendship and support during the last year. KK, Ingrid, Hildie, PHM, K4BB, DotMom, Julie, Holly, Cate, Enormir, margie, Amy, rebecca, Jan in CA, Joel, Rorshack, Norman, Fibergirl, MFG,
Suzie, foldedbird, Tia, and SO MANY others have become part of my daily life, and I’m going to miss you all a lot. :crying:

I’ll check in here when I can, but I probably won’t be back until the end of Feb at the earliest. (By the time I get back Kelly’s blog will be at 400 pages, I’m sure) :rofling:

Happy Knitting and have a wonderful rest of the winter - and let’s hope the Groundhog DOESN’T see his shadow. (Woodstock, IL was so much fun I rented the movie the day I got back to MI.)

:XX: :XX: :XX: :XX: :XX:


:crying: Bye Mary! Get internet soon!!! :waving:

Bye. Hope all goes well and I’m sure its all for the best. Maybe you can use the library to go online.

I feel your pain! :frowning: I am in accounting too, but not public - I would definitely go crazy. I have been so busy lately with work that I can barely ever read anything or respond. I also haven’t had as much time for knitting either which is worse!

Hope you get back to the forum soon and find another job that suits you. :smiley:



I was just getting to know you. :frowning:

Good for you that you know how to walk away from a job when you need to.

Hey theres always the library computer!

Hope to see you soon.


what she said.

take care of yourself Mary, and good luck. congrats on making a decision to do something for YOU :D. hugs

:frowning: Bye for now, Mary- hope to see you back again soon.

OH MARY!!! We’ll miss you!!! Sounds like you are doing the best thing for you right now, though…send me some contact info so I can keep you posted about knit-togethers!! :heart: :heart: :heart:

Bye Mary, take care! :waving: We’ll miss you!

<-------she is in public accounting…GAK!

Oh Mary I can definitely understand - not sure how I am going to get through yet another busy season! Even though our office doesn’t officially start until Feb., I am already doing 10 hour days and weekends…and I am part time!

We will miss you - come back soon!

Come back soon! Best wishes for a smooth transition.

Hope you find a happy place to work soon! And get lots of knitting done in the meantime! :smiley:

There’s always the library, you know… :wink:

Take care!!

I hope you find a less stressful job! :heart: I’ll miss you, Mary. What Andrea said, get internet soon. :wink: :waving:

Yes, come back as soon as you can!!! The library is a wonderful idea! :cheering:

Take Care of yourself. Bye :waving:

Take care and hope to see you posting again soon :frowning:

Sad :waving:

I hope you find another, more fulfilling and less stressful job soon–and of course with that must come internet access!

I hope knitting gives you comfort, at least, as you work through everything.

Take care, and I hope we see you back very soon! (And yes, get to the library!)

:heart: Hugs :heart:

[color=indigo]Mary, I was without a computer at home for almost a year. I used the computers at our public library.
It got me out of the house every day, something I don’t do now.
AND I met a librarian who knits and told me about the LYS I didn’t know was in the next town.

Other people came in to do job searches and more important things than I was doing. :rollseyes:

Bye Mary and take care! I agree with the others, the library is a great resource for internet access! Stop by there and come visit us sometime soon! We will keep you sane! :wink:
