What's New

What's new? That is a good question since I'm on spring break and haven't blogged in months. I could just say, "Nothing!" But that isn't quite true. In areas of family: I'm still amazed, and entertained by the direction, choices, and lives of my children. In the area of marriage: despite my tenancy to lash all life's hardship on him, I haven't yet run him off.(coming up on 31 years) In the area of parents: you really can't teach an old dog new tricks. In the area of pets: down to 2 dogs. In the area of work: never worked harder, achieved less, and been more concerned about the future of mankind. In the areas of leisure: care much less about creativity and much more about physical being. In the area of religion: enjoying many series covered in services. (Is my willingness to let God drive my ship a sign that I'm lazy?) In the area of entertainment: still think I'm the funniest thing I know! In the areas of literature: none In the areas of music: why do so many great songs have such raunchy lyrics? In the area of fashion: as always perplexed! In the area of dance: no new moves.(waiting for Dancing with the Stars) I guess I could go on forever but the more I write, the more I realize...nothings new.

Making It

Living one mile from 35 and 12 miles from a major city we once again find ourselves without Internet service at our home! No we are not the Beverly Hillbillies! I have developed a new practice of a Sunday visit to Borders for coffee and browsing. I have my own corner, plug, coffee, and samples. I find I barely miss my home Internet. I am spending my valuable time doing things like chess, watching silly shows and keeping up better with laundry. So if you miss me on Facebook just wait until Sunday!

The New Year and Nothing New

This year I will remind myself that life is what you choose to make of it.
