Back to Blogging
Did you all miss me? Thank you for the notes. Nothing drastic kept me from blogging except life and it's complexities. We got through it, but I just wasn't in the mood to blog about my musings when my thoughts were occupied. We are all healthy, not any wealthier and hell of a lot wiser. Except for maybe the kittens, they still are a little dumb and no, we aren't ready to set them on fire!
Before getting back into the swing of blogging, I decided to put up a banner of some of my favorite things. Yea, I know, kind of hokey, but I really wanted to play with Appleworks which is now on my computer now that I have a brand new spanking big ole hard drive. I just don't get the idea behind a 60g hard drive when you are suppose to have at least 20g free to do any thing fun like an imovie or idvd on an apple. There was a slight scare and a road trip to the nearest Apple Genius bar ( 40 miles.....could be worse!) where they had to show me how to get my Iphoto library back up and running. But as you can see, there are a few glitches in the blog template and I guess I may have to ask for help.
Snow? Yep, our yards are covered. The snowman on our front step survived, but just barely. His hat is more like a derby than a top hat. Sunburnt? Yep, weatherman lied and the sun came out full blast today at a track meet. Ready for summer? You betcha, I hear Florida beckoning me.
What's new in my boring life? Got my hair highlighted- b/c winter has just been too damn long and I needed something bright in my life.
Nordic skiing is over and now it's track- two sons started, one son has since quit and that's okay.
It's been an interesting budget time with our school budget and I have become a little activist. There is no way that I will even mention what it is about, since our townpeople are google happy and that's all we need....
Got another afghan almost completed for Shelly.
Have read a bunch of books and am now dragging myself through Eat, Pray, Love which is not going to win any rave reviews from me. I guess others have loved it, but the author is just sharing way too much angst. On the other hand, I just read Richard Russo's Bridge of Sighs which I enjoyed very much.
Work- is crazy busy, I have picked up a ton of hours.
Weight Watchers- bit the bullet and headed back to meetings, the 12 pounds I regained have got to go. ( but of course I joined after getting two lindt bars for my birthday....)
Heading down to Florida with a road trip up to Savannah to check out Savannah College of Art and Design and then another road trip to Orlando to check out Full Sail with my son and his friends. So I am not out solving the problems of the world, but just living a hectic life.
