a dent

i have so many pictures and so many thoughts and my mind keeps putting off a mountain of laundry.  instead of doing a little, making a miniscule dent. i just procrastinate and procrastinate.  i love writing so i'm not quite sure why i put off doing something enjoyable, maybe because i feel guilty.  guilty because i know i have a million other things i could be doing.  but you know what, this writing and blogging stuff is replenishing and as much as i'd like to think that i really am an energizer bunny and can keep going and going.  i'm not.  i need to be replenished with things i love to do.  and i notice that if i don't get replenished, i get very very cranky.  you know what else makes me cranky...not enough sleep.  so i'm going to bed.  another replenishing activity.  who knows, i might even get a pedicure tomorrow!!

"On a beautiful day, my favorite thing to do would be to go on a bike ride around town with Bryant. There is nothing like getting on your bike and just cruising around, the sun beating down on your face, the wind blowing by, no worries about any thing. Hmm this sounds so nice. It has finally stopped raining here in Michigan, it is currently 60 and sunny. My bike isn't here at school so I'll go for a run instead. :) I often find myself reading your blog if I’m sad, happy, or someplace in between. Sometimes when family lives apart it is "difficult" to keep in touch. Your blog makes me feel so a part of your life, my brother’s life, and that adorable niece of mine. So, thank you for filling that distance. While Bryant is away in Afghanistan I think I will send him random pictures of things that make me smile to try and fill the distance between us right now. It is the simple things that make us happy :) "

congratulations to my wonderful sister!!  email me at and we can schedule it.
