I've been busy. We all get busy. Question for you: if you get busy and you feel that you aren't reading blogs or answering comments in the timeframe that you want, do you stop posting? Or do you continue posting and just catch up when you can? I know there isn't a "right" or "wrong" answer to this question...I'm just interested in how others handle this.
The election. So much to say. So many things have been said. One friend of mine from high school has been teaching internationally for the last ten years. She is currently in South America. She has also lived in the Ukraine, Asia, and (if I remember correctly) Portugal. She has been vocal on facebook. One person asked: "Why do you care? You haven't lived in the U.S. for years?" Many others handled this question appropriately. I responded to just count me into that category of "American citizen living in another country who still cares." But, I really just wanted to post this gif:
I am inspired by this friend of mine. She later posted that twice a year she scores essays for an international college and has done so for years. She is going to use the money earned from that task and donate to two causes that she believes in - Planned Parenthood and the ACLU. I love this. It could be any causes or worthy organizations. But, I love the examination of what she, as an individual, can give and supporting groups that she feels are deserving.
I signed up for a 10k walk (walk, not run) that's happening March 2017. I'm in the worst shape I've ever been. I gotta start somewhere, and I have a super duper friend who motivated me to do this walk together. Plus, it supports the Starlight Children's Foundation which is a great cause. Double plus, it's called "A Walk with a Finish for Foodies". That's right. At the end, there will be "Picnic Market stalls for gourmet treasures including cheese, cured meats, artisan breads, crafty beer and boutique wines."
We've all seen little sayings/memes like the one above, right? I guess that I am a dog. I am motivated by food. I'm not ashamed. I rather like dogs.
When we close the shop, I'll be changing library that I frequent. I've gotten carried away by this fact. It seems like I'm trying to get all the books before I change, and a lot of my reserves are coming in. Currently, I have 10 things checked out, and I've received notice for 4 more things to pick up.
During a major "Spring Clean" about a month or so ago, I found some leftover Christmas cards that I planned to use this year. Do you think I remember what I did with them? Nope.
Making my Christmas list...why is it every year that I get to those important men in my life (my husband, my dad, my brother), and I can never figure out what to get them? They are also the ones that are no help...they tell me that they don't need anything and to not buy them a present.
What do you buy those "hard to buy for" men in your life??
