Give Or Take 10 Days Or So And I Will Be Back

  1. Dale Mazurek profile image71
    Dale Mazurekposted 7 years ago

    I have so missed this place.  My life has been crazy. 

    Torn Miniscus
    Waiting on surgery
    same company, different job
    sold our house
    moving into a condo

    Finally after all the crap in the last 2 years it finally feels like our lives are moving forward even with the little knee problem.

    I have been doing very little online but the time to come back has arrived.

    I have been preparing to come back and focus.  Have gotten rid of almost all apps on Facebook.  Unsubscribed from many lists.

    I have shut down some blogs because I was tired of trying to make money with niches I had no interest in.

    I love affiliate marketing, I absolutely love fishing, I love safety and the oil patch.  Because I love these, this is where my focus will be.

    We will be moving this week.  By the end of next week my new home office will be set up and once again I will be online.

    I have missed Hubpages and being online so much that the last couple weeks of getting ready to come back have been uber exciting.

    So for now I may be looking around the forums and maybe even throwing in a comment here and there but look out in December because I will be back with a vengeance.

    Im looking forward to getting back with old friends and meeting new ones.

      So nice to see you as well Habee.  Cant wait to get back here in a more regular manor.

      Life has been hectic but finally myself and my wife are having fun again.

    Also forgot to mention I will be doing a lot about quitting smoking.  Would also love to be a support system for Hubbers looking to quit.

    The best decision I ever made in life was just over six months ago when I decided to quit smoking.

    I can identify with the knee problem, Dale!  But today surgery isn't as bad as it was when I had mine done.  Good luck and welcome back!

      RD, I think you should write a hub about how you injured your knee. lol

        Cause Google might frown on a hub about nude skydiving!  LOL!

          I think it would be okay as long as you don't include pics. If you did decide to add photos, be sure to use your wide-angle lens!

            I thought I would borrow your original photos of the stunt!  You do still have them?

              I sold the originals to Playgirl, but I think I have some copies somewhere, Mr. October!

    I know one goal I have forsure is to have the 100 number beside my name.  Hopefully I can do well enough to achieve that like so many great writers here.

    Good to see you Dale!  One of my staff's husband just had the torn miniscus surgery a couple of weeks ago.  He had it on a Thursday morning and was back to work on the following Tuesday.  She said he only really had to double up on the pain meds that first 36 hours.  After that it was pretty smooth.

      So nice to hear from you my Kimberly.

      I missed a lot of people when I was gone and you were one of them.

      I look forward to the heedless flirting that goes on. 

      Sorry that you are still my number 2 behind my wife but it really isnt a bad place to be in.
