I’m Still Here

I know it has been a while again, sorry.  Why is it when life throws stuff at you, it is almost more than you can handle?  I am not sure which way is coming and going right now.  I have no Christmas gifts purchased, I don’t know what to get people, let alone when I will find the time or energy to shop (yes even the queen of on-line shopping is too tired and too busy to shop on-line).  I did finally get to read a book a few weeks ago, but I have tons more I would like to get to.  I would really like to get a Christmas Romance or two in before the Christmas season is over.  More updates to come soon. 

It’s Official

I have officially reached stressed out mode over my upcoming Disney Vacation and Disney Cruise. And it’s not till December!

Funk

I have been in a funk lately, I’m not going to lie. A writing funk, a reading funk, a just life in general funk. Maybe I need a vacation. A little rest and relaxation to get the funk out of me. The weekends go so fast, it feels like no sooner they begin they are ending already. So maybe a week away from reality would do me some good. A week of doing nothing but sleeping, watching hallmark, and reading may be just what I need.

Travel Month: Road Trip

To me there is nothing better than a good ole road trip. Pack up the car and head out on a grand adventure. Yes the highway in the sky will get you there faster, but there is so much you don’t get to see by just flying above everything. I am not a huge Jason Alden fan but his song “Fly Over States” hits home with me. By not flying I have seen so many interesting things: a heard of sheep at a cow crossing in Wyoming, Wall Drugs and Corn Palace in South Dakota, and I have taken “a ride across the badlands” as the song suggests. I have no desire to go overseas when I still have so much more here on mainland USA I haven’t seen yet, and maybe some of Canada.
