I really shouldn't hide from MommaZombie's cancer, but I need to rest up. I am so tired, and I have a small cold that refuses to go away.

My boss said I should take a vacation day every week in the summer; I think that I shall, and take many long weekends to visit Mom.

I'm hiding from my bank account.  I forgot to log and account for a rather large check that I wrote out, and now I've messed up the month's budget rather badly.  Mr. Mancer was able to bail out the checking account so that we're not actually in the red, but the rest of the month's bills total more than what we have so something will have to be paid late, or by credit card.  Argh.

I'm hiding, yet again, from a stack of grading.  It's not going anywhere, after all.

I'm hiding after some difficult meetings with some "challenging" personalities.

Whatever your problem is, it's probably my fault.

I don't know what, exactly, I want to hide from, but I do want to hide. With my cats, of course.

Thanks for the blankets.  I am desperate to be somewhere warm.  It would also be nice to sleep more...

This is the place to hide from insomnia, Theritas.

I hope this thread stays crazy-free. I need a refuge.

I think I had the flu. Now I've made a big important decision about a chapter in my book, so I'm hiding to get over it all.
