Where the hell have I been?

I have not been blogging, that's for sure. I have been extremely stagnant in almost every area of my life for weeks, maybe even a month or more. I've started plowing through the backlog of "stuff I'll do later" and just doing it. There's no other way, just start where I am. I got thrown off track and out of my routine with some out of town work, a crisis of sorts, and a couple of weeks of sinus stuff that made me feel really bad. I missed out on my Vision Group meeting twice because I was out of town and and a third time because I wasn't feeling well. Meeting with those ladies really helps me stay on the path; not being in contact with the group has a definite effect. It is so easy to get out of my routine and good habits, and so hard to get back on track. I've historically not been one to consistently stay on course and be in balance, but that is becoming more important to me as I get older. It's so much easier to maintain than to catch up. I find when I'm trying to catch up, I can also miss the beauty of the process. Doing things in a mad rush is no way to live, not anymore.

Other things...
I broke my camera during a trip to Seattle to see my sweetie. Photos often inspire me to blog and so I haven't been as inspired to write. I have replaced my camera and hope to make more regular installments for the blog.

I have a new haircut and it makes me very happy.

My sweetest little Kemeko-san is in Japan right now, studing facial expressions and such. She sent a box chocked full of Japanese goodness this week. I have already eaten most of the candy and I am enjoying each and every little thing in there!

I found some fantastic lawn furniture on Craigslist and had to have a cookout to celebrate. I left a lot of preparation to the last minute and didn't have time to take pictures until almost everyone was gone... but it was a good party.

Soooo I'm back, I'm getting it together and I'm going to try to balance a little better. Wish me well!
