So much to blog about and so little time

I’m sorry that I’ve fallen off the bandwagon. There’s so much to do, but never enough time to do it.

A couple things I’m thinking about right now are:

  1. Getting estimates from contractors on finishing one, if not two, unfinished rooms in the house. This is great because the unfinished rooms have always made the house feel, well, unfinished. I’ll feel a certain emotional emancipation by having those rooms finished. It’s like having a puzzle with a couple pieces not yet in place. Yes, it’s a beautiful image, but it ain’t finished yet.
  2. Maybe possibly potentially getting a new(ish) car for me. I really, really, really want to have a mid-life crisis car – fast, sleek, gleaming, and new. But the practical part of me knows that I have a lot of people who depend on me and would be better served by using that money for their benefit. I should probably get something economical, easy on the gas, and which I can pass down to Emily when she turns 16. But a Mustang GT sure sounds AWESOME right now.
  3. Less travel in my future, due to getting a damn pacemaker. I truly do not want to need a pacemaker. But if I’m going to have one, let’s make the best of it. I’ll most likely get the pacemaker put in during June. I hope I can turn things around to perhaps travel less. Traveling 50% is just too taxing and emotionally exhausting.
  4. Springtime. I love gardens and gardening. Gardening is really soothing to me. But I just haven’t been able to do it for a few years now. I think things will be different this year. I can’t wait to put in a new flower garden and probably some vegetables and berries.

Well, on to other things.



  1. I hate that you are having to get a pacemaker. It just doesn’t seem right. You are the original German superman. I still remember you beating the crap out of me with bamboo swords while Mike clubbed you from behind. How did we get here?

  2. I think my genes were built around living a short and brutal life. Warriors aren’t supposed to be genetically programmed to live a long life because you’re going to die young anyway. (tongue firmly in cheek)
