My 300th Post.. A Mixed Bag Of Thoughts Today..
It has taken me about 2-1/2 years to get to this post... sounds like a long time but it sure did pass quickly! I started this venue of communication to read my sons' blog. He lives in K.C. MO, and it was the only way I could comment on his blog! He soon lost interest, and moved on to other, more high tech (or single person options!). I stayed. I found a way to start writing again. I found a way to document happenings in my life, both past and present...literally an on-line way to pass on a bit of my life to my family and friends- or anyone else these thoughts and memories would strike a cord with. I watched my posts evolve (and we are all still evolving, believe me!)from mini rants, observations, and self musings(which nobody first read!)- into a way to communicate and relate to wonderful people from all over the world! Look closely, and we are all very different! Look with open, understanding mind- and we have so many things in common... I had a phone conversation with Doggy Bloggy which lasted at least a half an hour... We had never spoken to each other, but the shared laughs and knowledge we had made it seem like I went to grade school with him! This blogging thing is for real.. we are all for real, whether we are pretending or not!
I left my career behind a week ago, and this is the stuff I'm starting to think about again-finally!
Dinner was as retro as I know how to make it- Herbed beef and pork meatloaf, Yukon Gold mashed potatoes, gravy, sauteed mushrooms, and home-made apple crisp!
Tomorrow is the last out-patient procedure I've got to do(hopefully!). Then maybe a little R & R...
