Sometimes I feel like this guy: bumbling along, never knowing what trouble I’ll trip into next . . .
To build my blog and then abandon it because life has just gotten too dang busy.
To finally get a job I love but for that job to only be part time.
To get a part-time job I love and for that job to be more than thirty miles away. (Gas is more than $4 a gallon.)
To get a ticket for talking on my cell phone in my car for two seconds. Why can’t you go after the real trouble-makers, cops? (My co-worker’s bike was stolen from right in front of our office the same day.)
To have a clean apartment but never spend time relaxing in it (writing my blog) because I’m too busy cleaning (thinking) and exercising (thinking).
To break my boyfriend’s beautiful glass thermometer because I was trying to clean it.
To cut my finger so deeply (I could see the tendon) that I need stitches because I broke my boyfriend’s thermometer.
To cut my finger so deeply I need stitches on the weekend my brother is getting married in Tahoe. (Love you, bro!)
To be lucky enough to have a dad who’s a doctor who, it just so happens, will also be at the wedding in Tahoe this weekend.
To want to clean my car because I just can’t take the dirt anymore, despite the fact that I need stitches and my car is just going to get dirty this weekend, anyway. (We’re driving it to Tahoe.)
To want to ride my bike today because that’s just what I love to do, even if I do have a cut finger!
To beat myself up for the mistakes I’ve made, and then to just make them again.
To never give up despite making the same mistakes over and over again, because that’s just how I am — stubborn as hell.
To have just written an entire draft of this post and not saved it, then pushed save, and for it to have been deleted.
To miss reading your blogs and connecting with you (you know who you are) but to be unable to catch up with everyone right now.
To miss you all and know that someday soon I’ll be back — blogging regularly, loving endlessly.
Pictures from my brother’s wedding to come. I hope you all have a beautiful weekend!
