A very quick check-in while I have internet available. We’re going on the road, and I’ll try to keep in touch through the phone, but there is spotty coverage here and there. Amazing in this developed country, but so it is. As for goals, I’ve been concentrating on life goals, and I am absolutely fine with that. 🙂
I’ve been enjoying being with my sons since Friday, so not a lot of writing has been moving forward. I can’t write in the car, as it gives me motion sickness, and all the motion sickness medications make me sleep. However, I am not worried about it. I know I can get back in the groove quickly enough. We haven’t all been together for a year and a half; as they get older, the times that we can manage that will occur even less often.
I’ve not been walking the dog daily, as Brigid is enjoying the kennel where she and Riley stay, which has horses and goats for her to bark at, and lots of dogs for soulful communication. Riley, the consummate couch potato, is still on exercise restriction for about another month. He is content to watch Brigid tear after the goats rather than join in.
However, I have been walking a lot. The campus here is not as big as the massive state university where I work (not that I walk the perimeter of that ever!), but I am still walking more than a half-hour a day. We went to a football game yesterday, which gave me the opportunity to walk up the steps to the nosebleed seats.
We leave the youngest son here today, and take off on the monster journey to the frozen north in the wee hours tonight. My plan is to take notes for the book reviews that I owe far, far too many wonderful authors when I am not careening down the highway, so that I might have some to post when I get back. The scholarly work will have to wait until we are at my younger daughters, although I will pick time with her family over writing again. I’ve not seen them in well over a year, and if that means adjusting my goals, it will be well worth it.
So, I hope to be visiting many of you over the next few days; if not, know that I am supporting you in-between yelling at the “no service” icon on my phone!
