Slow and steady....

Buddy we met on the trail

William and I went hiking last Thursday. We left at 8:45, arrived at our destination in Berea and began our long walk at 9:45 am. We completed our walk about 1:00 and got back in time for me to shower and get to work. I’ve had a “blog” brewing even as I walked the trails. Here is it is six days later and I now have the time to place my thoughts in black and white...


…but like most of us who are not getting any younger, I have forgotten some of my most important thoughts. To be further honest, I’ve been a bit jealous over the time Mrs. Who has to place three postings up while I search for the time for this one. While I are being honest, here, I will add, that to spend time sleeping, eating and enjoying the sunshine on a beautiful scenic getaway probably has me greener than the fact of not having time to write. Is envy different from jealousy? Isn’t being envious wanting to have what another has instead of them having it? And jealousy is happy for the other to have it…but wants it, too. Or is that “jones-ing” I know the answer already…you don’t have to tell me…If you haven’t had a chance to vacation with Mrs. Who, you really ought to spend a minute or two with her in Puerto Vallarta at http://iknowwhereyoucanfindit.blogspot.com/ I think she should offer to take pictures for their menus there. Her food photos prompt me to know exactly what I would order if I were there.
Even LizzyBee found time to bless us with the Moose’s’ sweetness at http://www.moose-ontheloose.blogspot.com/ …who is such a young age is dealing with “promotions” at his daycare, a girlfriend, graduation from the “sippy” and newspaper reading. His life is on the move!
Claire turned three over the weekend and Ariel was able to post some really sweet photos of the little princess at http://www.viewfromthefishbowl.blogspot.com/ . Sarah and Nick are celebrating their first year of marriage at http://www.bio-girl.blogspot.com/ and sharing their trip with her sisters…which was excellent. Then to feel the pain that Lucy’s Mom was feeling, yet the excitement about her upcoming trip at http://musingsfromtheleftcoast.blogspot.com/ made me stop and realize. Maybe, I haven’t written because when I did have had time to write I have been immersed in my family’s blogs, as well as, a few friends’ blogs on MySpace. And it’s all good. It’s good to be sharing the ups and downs of family and family and not just be stuck in my own thoughts. I will hopefully get to my writing soon but for now, I’ve stopped beating myself up for lack of time and resigning to a positive line of thought--- I am connected.


And it’s good.

You're right... connecting is a good thing! I'm the same way. I can't always find time to write my own blog but I always seem to have time to read everyone elses. Go figure. Either way, glad to hear from ya! Enjoyed our time last night!

Remember that Tom and I have been married for 30 years and our kids are grown and gone and we are looking at retirement in a year or so. I have MUCH more time than you!! Don't stress about it; just write when you can. We enjoy it. One thing I do is keep a notepad by my bed because I get more ideas just when I am falling asleep!! You might think about looking into the all-inclusive vacations - they are very reasonable and we love having everything paid for before we go. So we can eat whatever we want!!! Glad you enjoyed the pictures. That means a lot coming from such a good photographer!

I also seem to find time to read what the family has to say, then wish I had more time to post!
