I promised myself no matter what today I would blog. I'm trying very hard to not cut myself off and thereby making this blog a brief summary rather than an actual paragraph (or two). Giving oneself time to be creative can be as difficult as any task. I've learned that the hard way recently.

So much going on....

1. Work is steady, which is awesome, but we are still not locked into a new contract for 2010. I love my job - still.

2. The DH loves his new bike. Oh yeah, you don't know... I got tired of him borrowing mine so I bought him his own last week. Nice 2009 Dyna Super Glide. Sweet bike.

3. Thanksgiving is fast approaching and I couldn't be happier. Not because it's a time for family togetherness. Oh no! For us it's a time of mini solo vacation! That's right. The DH is taking off for Phoenix on a 4x4 trip with the daughter in tow. The leave Wednesday afternoon and return on Monday. I can't believe I'll have 5 whole days to myself. I'm practically giddy with anticipation. I'm buying a bottle of scotch. Just sayin...

4. The youngest son is now bound for Afghanistan. Although I am trying very hard to be a Marine, the Mom in me is pushing it's way to the surface. I hope we hear from him soon.

5. I need to start getting ready for my trip to Ohio Dec 2-7. As you might recall I am scheduled to do a craft show at my cousin's work. I have completed purses and scarves for the inventory. Now I need to take inventory, pictures and put together a photo book of sorts for the booth, along with packing up the inventory and shipping it to Ohio prior to the show.

6. The MC is starting to be a painful entity for me. It's a boy club and although I am a Veteran I am still not a guy - so they treat me differently and really don't quite know what to do with me. I don't really fit in with their wives, but I try. I do ok at it, but my heart is just not there. It hurts but I just have to accept it and move on. Dwelling on it won't change anything.

I think that's about it... Summarized and yet no disgustingly short. I am tired these days - more so than I should be. It's a lack of will and a bit of depression I think. I need to find some pleasure somewhere, in something, somehow. What a daunting task!
