Random "boaters" passing by...although I'm pretty sure they could use a bigger boat.


Oh hai.

I'm really sorry that I've let this place completely go to the dogs...as I explained to Barb - sheer laziness is my only explanation. I've been staying up into the wee hours watching the Olympics, which means I'm pretty much a zombie during the day after work. I love the Olympics, but they make me really miss Mom...she and I would constantly update each other with a lot of "did you see..." type phone calls. Miss her tons and I think that's probably contributing to my flakiness at the moment.

Another reason for my lack of posting is because I've decided I'm absolutely boring - nothing exciting or noteworthy happening in my life AT ALL to speak of. I don't want to bore you guys to death so I thought I'd wait until I had something to say. But I don't. I'm posting here today because Ty prompted me to...he told me if I didn't put up a post he was going to hack into my account and pretend he was me. We don't want that.

So Linds is away with her Dad for two weeks...that terrifies me. He's being his usual idiotic self but I'm learning to accept the things I can not change. And I can't kill him, so.....

Anyhow, she gets home tomorrow and I'm really looking forward to seeing her. I miss her shinanigans when she's away.

Fiona was just here for a week and we did a lot of laughing, a bit of wine drinking and generally had a lovely time. I love my kids and their S/O's....I'm blessed to have such wonderful people in my life.

So this is it...nothing earth shattering or even entertaining. I did do a very long post a few days ago, but decided to save it (again). I just don't want to do the heavy, Dr. Phil crap and it was a bit of a journey into my past. Pffft - let it go already. I'm really just enjoying life too much to even think about things that bring me down.

Although I'm sick of this heat, I do love the summer and it brings out the best in me. I'm a happy camper when I can ride my bike by the river each night. I did run over a snake the other day - poor thing, split him right in half! I was doing about 90 and didn't see him crossing the path until it was too late. I was going to go back and see if I could help him and then I had a wtf moment. Like I don't even know where the snake hospital is. Duh. What the hell would I do with two snake halves? Anyone need a belt?

So that's about it folks. I'm chilling but missed you so I'm making the rounds tonight. Hope you're all doing well and life is treating you good.

I'll be back soon.

I love your description of running over the snake, made me laugh. :)

I think there is a general malaise going around August this year, hopefully it lifts soon. But at least you can ride your bike in the meantime.

Snake hospital... geez, I don't know where ours is, either...

Glad to see you back, Deb. :-)

that passing lot looks like a real cartoon comedy boatride: how on earth did so many manage to pile on without the entire lot of 'em ending up in the water..??!??..!!

I don't think you are boring... come on, you almost got into a fist fight at the laundry mat, who can be boring with a life like that?

Blogging burnout sounds more like it. It happens.

Cheers

Everybody needs a break now and then. DOn't beat yourself up about it - just go out and ride your bike and the urge to write will return eventually. Just take it easy on the snakes.
