  • Yes, it’s been a while. Life is busy and hectic and good.
  • Coach & I saw “Son of God” last weekend. I really liked how the story was done. The cinematography was beautiful.
  • The weekend before we went to see “Lone Survivor”. Not my kind of movie at all. In fact, I left about 1/2 way in. Of course I knew there would be violence. I just didn’t think it would be more than 2 hours of non-stop, up close, in your face gun battles. I can’t do that much violence. It makes me physically ill.
  • The next flick on our list is “Noah”. You can’t go wrong when Russell Crowe and Anthony Hopkins are in the same show.
  • A wonderful person that I’ve never met did one of the kindest things for me last month. I cried. He affirmed my thought that there are truly good and selfless people walking among us.
  • Work. Wow. It is great! There are big things headed my way. I can’t say much more than that right now but soon enough…. soon enough. I’m a happy girl.
  • The beast is active, still. At least the progression has peaked and things have stopped declining some. Now it’s time to adjust to the new normal. I feel very fortunate that the damage is minimal on the grand scale. I have some new numbness, twitching, and gimpiness. But I can handle that. The first few weeks of this relapse were a bit rough mentally. I felt as though my brain had been replaced with champagne. Bubbles. I don’t know how else to describe it. It was more than the fog we all know and love. Thank God that has lessened a lot.
  • Coach & I attended a funeral today. Young man… much too young. His brother plays baseball on Coach’s team. I would bet there were more than 500 people at the service.
  • I’m missing my family. It’s been about 3 months since we were there. Looking forward to summer break so we can visit again. I love where we are living. We both have wonderful jobs. Life is really good for us here at the tip o’ Texas… but I miss the family.
  • Some other things I have been missing – writing here, drawing, snapping photos, reading. There’s no gumption left in me when I get off work. I have enough energy left to eat dinner and sit in my recliner. That’s about it. And my mind is mush at the end of the day. So much of what I’ve been doing is brain work. Lots of reading, research, and writing. One of these days though, soon enough…
  • I’ve missed my blog friends. I hope you are all doing well and hanging in there. Unfortunately I have not read anyone’s stuff. I will get back to it. I have to. I felt good and motivated and connected when I had time and gumption to read –
  • I even have a brand spankin’ new Kindle Fire! It was a gift for a job well done. That’s a story for another time. For now I will say that I work for some incredible folks… the kind of people that recognize hard work and effort and they show their appreciation in big ways. I’m blessed to be right where I am.
  • I need to make a time management schedule. I need to pencil in time for the things I’m missing.
  • 5 minutes to draw
  • 5 minutes to read
  • 5 minutes to write
  • 5 minutes to take a photo
  • My soul is aching.
  • One of these days
  • Soon enough… soon enough
Being an adult is like looking both ways before you cross the street and then getting hit by an airplane.

  1. I’ve missed reading your blog, but I can see how extremely busy you’ve been! It amazes me how you manage to do it all. Glad to hear that you’re doing well, and I hope you can find those five-minute segments!

  2. Welcome back. I am missed you and am pleased to hear you are ok(ish).

    • I have missed you to EC! I will be catching up with you over the next few days. I have penciled in specifically you and a few others to go read and catch up with. I hope you are doing well 🙂

  3. I am happy to catch up a bit on your life. Glad so many things are going well. Sorry the illness kicked your butt for a while. And I’m so happy someone wonderful gave you faith in humanity. I love it when people are good and kind for no reason.

    My uterus is falling out. If that doesn’t get you over to read my blog, I can’t imagine what would.

  4. I have missed reading your stuff!

    If you’re a fan of “Son of God,” you might need to get ready for “Noah.” The director called it “the least biblical movie ever” this week. That won’t keep me away – I love his other films! – but it might make for a very different target audience than”Son of God.”

    • Watching the trailers for Noah, it looks like it will be an incredible movie. It looked like the core of the story, floods and the ark, were sort of intact. I imagine the writer tried to imagine the impact of the world around him through these events. Ah, artistic liberty. Love it! I’ve learned to watch these types of movies like any other… as a story being told. A filmmaker’s perception or version of something.

      I loved The DaVinci Code and Angles & Demons. Being raised Catholic, I know I’m not supposed to love those movies LOL But the stories are good even if they don’t exactly follow what I’ve been taught over the years.
