    Vacation, medical, whatever, etc.

    For example: Be sure and sign out from all accounts.

        Yes, and makes notes about your experiences, what helped and how you survived, which could help others in the future. Because we're waiting for you to come back and write a hub about it. smile

          I am pleased to announce that my internet vacation will end on August 10, 2012.

          Unless the new provider messes up of course. lol

          Farewell all until then!

    Make "awhile" a temporary thing by learning from the experience and getting back on your feet.  Even if it means giving up and sacrificing things.  Attitude is everything.  Whatever the reason, to hell if I'm going to go down whining.  Let's just say that if I couldn't afford the Internet and wanted it so badly, I'm eating the friggen' grass in my front yard before I'll go to the store and buy some overpriced meat!  There are choices on this Earth.  Why, there's probably even a library with computers near your home if you are willing to wait in line with the teenagers and senior citizens.  You have SSI in the near future.  Why don't you start by being grateful for that???
