Random musings and activities of a 30 something mom, potential sprint triathlete, vegetarian, dog and cat owner, and a evolving urban homesteader just trying to do the right thing in life for my daughter and the world around us. If the blog seems random, it's because life is and hits us all at 100mph.

PostHeaderIcon welcoming myself back

I don't think I've ever gone a month without blogging. In some ways I miss it, and in other ways I feel relieved.

things happen to me daily and I think, "that would make a great blog" and then I don't write it down and the moment is lost. My memory is too bad to recount it later. Though I do remember a story about Chuck and my car battery, that needs to be shared.

Blogging isn't just me writing down random events in my life and the irony that is lost on many people that I see, but it's been a great way for me to work through things in my head. If you read it or don't... in a way it doesn't matter.

I miss my brother's blogs even more... he has a way of storytelling that I'm envious of.

I've logged into myspace 2x this month... and what's funny, is as long as you stay in front of people they remember you... you stop posting or logging in and you're easily forgotten. Or maybe it's because my real-life friends knew where to find me.

I joined "A million blogs of peace" and have yet to write one in the past week concerning that movement. Shame on me.

I have a great water-project I'm working on for church that has far-reaching community effects and haven't shared that with anyone outside of my committee. Shame on me.

And frankly, I haven't been around to read all the other blogs that brought a smile to my face (Fran) or made me stop and think daily (Marcus and Kara) or just made me laugh (too many to mention). Does that make me a bad-blogger-friend? Nah, just means my real-life was too consuming to take time to do this.

I honestly should make time to do this... it's a great way to wind down my day, articulate things running around in my head and help me work through them before sleeping.

I miss you guys and hopefully it won't be another month before I'm back again.

Quotes as I come across them......

“Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, an hour, a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it last forever.” ~~~Lance Armstrong

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy." ~~~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

"I like running because it's a challenge. If you run hard, there's the pain----and you've got to work your way through the pain. You know, lately it seems all you hear is 'Don't overdo it' and 'Don't push yourself.' Well, I think that's a lot of bull. If you push the human body, it will respond." ~~~Bob Clarke, Philadelphia Flyers general manager, NHL Hall of Famer. (Will-Weber's "Voices From the Midpack" chapter.)

The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don’t define them, or ever seriously consider them as believable or achievable. Winners can tell you where they are going, what they plan to do along the way, and who will be sharing the adventure with them.~~~Denis Watley

Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not; it is the first lesson that ought to be learned; and however early a man's training begins, it is probably the last lesson that he learns thoroughly. ~~~Thomas H. Huxley (1825 - 1895)
