Hi Everyone,
    I just wanted to let you all know I won't be around for awhile and I didn't want anyone to worry. I will have my internet turned off on monday.
    I lost my part-time job due to cut backs in the office so I need to get rid of some things I can do without. I've been looking for something else but, this is a small town and very few jobs. I would have to drive 20 to 30 miles to work somewhere else and with gas prices thats just out of the question.
    I want you all to know how much I appreciate your support, kindness and friendship. I will miss you all so very much!!! Please take care my friends and always know you are all in my thoughts and prayers.
                                              Lots of love and hugs, Babs
 
P.S.  I will be back when things get better!

Hi Judy,
   Thank you so much for the prayers. Yes times are though for alot of people right now. I hope the economy will turn in the right direction soon.
   I didn't even think about going to the library. I can do that occasionally. You take care as well and you are in my thoughts and prayers too.
                                                     Love, Babs

So sorry to hear that -- I'd almost rather loose my left toe than my internet service! For me, I cut cell phone & TV first, and started hitting the library instead of the book stores...but am still looking for things to cut out.

I hope things look up soon and they need you back or you can start generating a little income some other way. We will miss you terribly!

((((((Babs)))))) I'm so sorry for your misfortune, Babs, and will be thinking about you and praying for you. Times will get better before you know it! I'm going to put my email address in my profile for a couple of days. If you'd like to correspond via snail mail for a while, send me your mailing address. I'll do my best to get messages to and from the forum for you. Lots of folks aren't comfortable giving out their mailing address, but I do hope you'll correspond with someone so we won't worry about you and so we can at least stay in touch with you.

Let us know what else we can do to help.

I've been out of touch for a while, as you know, so before Monday, I do hope you'll let me know how you've been doing.

((((Hugs))))

Uh oh . . . .

Sorry sis . . . you sound like me . . . no cable, no cell phone . . . basic internet . . .

But . . . I would REALLY miss the internet!! I used to pop in the library and get online there. I hope you have a connection somewhere nearby you can use sometimes.

I was thinking of you today and how we both joined HW at around the same time. Remembered how we would both be wide awake at 3:00 am and chat in the chat room . . . LOL

I hope you find a great position soon!!!

Blessings!

Hi Babs:

I'm sorry that you lost your job and need to cut back. I certainly understand about the gas issue. You know I'll be happy to call you on a regular basis and I'll keep the folks on the forum updated on you if you'd like. I'm going to really miss your knowledge and encouraging words you offer.

I'll be praying for you and your family and I'll be thinking of you daily. You've become a very dear friend to me and the others here. Please don't hesitate at anytime to contact me if you need something. I'll do the best of my ability to help you out. I'll miss you sweetie, you take good care of yourself and I'll call you soon.

Love and hugs,

Hi Babs,

I'm really going to miss seeing you here. I'll always be so grateful to have such a wonderful friend in you. Just because you're not going to be around for awhile dosen't mean i won't be in touch. I'll call and keep you and your family in my prayers. Please feel free to call me anytime you like. Love you Babs (((((hugs)))))

Oh Babs, (((((hugs)))))))
 
I'm going to miss you too. I hope you won't be away from us for too long.  I'm sorry about your work situation.  I'll keep you in my prayers and pray that a new opportunity comes very soon for you.
 
Yeah, I just read Rosie's post.  The three of us joined almost at the same time those many years ago! Please try to touch base with us if you can.
 
Lots of love,

Babs,

I'm so sorry about your job. You are a wonderful person with a heart of gold and I will miss you dearly. When I first joined HW you made me feel very welcome and for that I thank you. I will be asking Barb and Kay how you are and will keep in touch through them. Please take care of yourself and I hope you will go to the library because we truly need your words of wisdom and you always make me smile. I'm sure you will find another job real soon.

Love Julia

BAbs, even though you live in a small town (as I do) ask about a local "freenet" that provides free internet service through the library system. Though it may not be as fast as your old hookup, it may allow you to get on once in a while. Sometimes in small towns the dialup isn't so bad because there isn't many people. I hope you have a library there. Ours has nice computers, videos and all.

Will miss your always compassionate and kind replies. I hope you come back soon!

   Oh wow! I'm speechless from all the loving caring support and kind words of encouragment from all of you! You all are so awesome!
   There is a nice library here where I can go every once in awhile to check in. I don't plan on staying away any longer than I have too. I already had my home phone line turned off so dial-up service is out.
   I did apply for a job online last night for the government and they are suppose to contact me by email within a few days so I will be online for a few more days anyway. I don't expect to get the job, but there's always hope... scool .
   I will keep working on finding another job and getting back to HW and my friends here as soon as possible. I will miss you all dearly! Thank you all again for everything! You are all in my thoughts and prayers always!

So sorry to hear about your job loss.  It's scairy enough right now with the price of EVERYTHING going up so outrageously.  I've been cutting back and even shopping at Aldi's much to my hubby's dismay.  Hopefully you can find something suitable in your own town.  I always think if I lost my job that something would be better than nothing.  Good luck and hope to see you back on your feet soon.

Im sorry to hear about you having the Internet turned off. I think the ideas others have written about using the Internet at the library are good. I know it won't be the same, but I hope you check in when you can. Do you have a nearby family member who might let you log in to their computer occasionally? I hope you keep us updated. We will all be thinking about you and wishing you the best in these tough economic times. I can relate to your situation. -- Harmony

Hi Bab's. I'm glad you at least have Barb to talk to on the phone and the library if you get yourself in a bad place. This isn't a disease you need to go through alone. I know it's so hard to get by these days. That's why I moved in at my brothers place. I'm just getting a grip on my final bills from my own house. Than I hope to get my credit cards caught up so I can spend the winter in arizona. My lungs can't take the oklahoma cold. But if it weren't for my family none of it would be possible. Food prices have tripled,gas is out of this world. I hope you get some good news about that job. I will be praying for ya. Just hang in there. Nothing ever stays the same it will get better.

love ya
