    Jack's Lament

    To my wonderful DWT family,

    I mentioned a few weeks ago that I was thinking about taking some time off of DWT... I am sorry to say that now is the time for me to do this. I have enjoyed my time here very much and have made some fantastic friendships that I hope will last for a lifetime. This site has become a home away from home and many of you have helped me through some very tough times. My time away will not be permanent and I may stop in from time to time to say hello. I wanted to post this thread so that those of you who notice my absence will not be alarmed.

    While I am away all I ask of my DWT family is to keep me in your thoughts and prayers. As many of you know I have had a lot of stress with my job, as well as with my recent marriage this past September. I've been told the first year can be the hardest for any couple, however, the past almost five months have been extra straining. I want to be sure I am focusing all my time and energy on my relationship with my Dear Wife first, and then on my job. I love my time on DWT, but among many other things it has become more of an obsession than a hobby and I cannot do that to my DW or the children that I teach.

    This is not goodbye, just a temporary break while I get some things straightened out... And don't worry the Pumpkin King will be back!
