one of the worst things to say in a blog post is that you are sorry for not posting. absence on a blog = blog suicide. posting is what keeps it alive. content helps it thrive. the good thing about an established blog like this one is the loyalty of its followers. if something new isn’t happening, most of you click back and find something retro to enjoy. it shows up on my dashboard here and i can see what you’ve been up to. the activity really makes me smile. thank you.
i have been lacking here.
for those in withdrawl…not to worry. AN is here now.
i took a week off and travelled east to see my daughter. it had been a long year without her vibe and hugs. the trip was my christmas present. we are lucky because we both don’t need a bunch of entertainment to enjoy each others company, i am like that myself in most things. a good meal takes me a long way, a sunset, the chatter of my daughter just rocks. my son surprised me and also flew in. it had not been as long between visits with him, and he arrived all banged up from a hit and run. poor guy. there we three were, his ankle on ice, me broke as toast and she preparing for a move. yup, in the midst of all known as my visit she moved. Chaos, emotions, not enough time, tons of hugs and moving dust. my trip was short, awesome and wonderful.
I got back to a wicked wicked cold. me thinks two over the top full long plane rides with other people didn’t help. so many people in such a small space. ick.
on day one of my cold i looked at a studio apt.
on day 4 i handed them a bunch of cash
holy crap i am so out of here.
i move in 10 days.
i teach tomorrow night.
i might have a date this weekend.
my chest hurts now, the cold has landed there.
could life – at least mine be any more of a roller coaster ride?
the moving fund to get me west.
is long depleted.
the move me again fund
while rather meager, i pulled out of my ass these last 3 months by not paying some other bills, eating carefully within a budget, and not buying a single thing.
me thinks i have the labor and the small truck covered.
i will have to save for a kitchen table and chairs
the green chair needs an overhaul and since that will be my only chair.
i will save up for that as well,
here we go again.
i will try and take something new
heart it all up for ya.
for now, last years red and pink vibe.
