Time to Travel!

Like my dear mother said in her blog yesterday, I have been infected with her wanderlust since I was a very small child. I remember reading the book and seeing the movie "A Little Princess" and wishing that I could grow up in India (with affluent British parents and a lavish houseboat, of course).

However, I grew up floating from place to place in the south and Midwest with a brief but beautiful 3 months in England my sophomore year of college. I always have the itch to hop on a plane or fill my tank and head off in a new direction. I believe traveling helps us grow, mature, broaden our thinking and horizons and exposure to new places, people, and cultures. Our newest planned (or rather unplanned and spontaneous) trip will be to Las Vegas in about 10 days. I took the week off and have always wanted to go back since my first visit there 2 years ago. I had gone with an old love, one I'd hoped to rekindle but soon found it to be as dead as the barren dessert surrounding America's playland.

I am excited to return with someone that does love me, possibly more than anyone else on this earth. I'm excited to see the bright lights with eyes not worried about anything but enjoying myself. It will be a freedom that I hope will bring us even closer and our wanderlust can be satiated for even a brief time. However, I am sure it will return soon...

p.s. apologies for having to use other's photo's - while all are credited to their source - I hope to have plenty of my own material soon and after this trip!

Good goals

Hello everyone! Sorry it's been so long since I've posted. It's funny, I've had a great deal of time off from one or the other jobs and I would have assumed that with more time I would have posted more...but the opposite is true. I found myself busy with very important things like napping, eating, cooking, napping, and a little bit of writing. It has been great and with the schedule as I've just made it, I will only be at one of my jobs ONE day a week! Giving me Mondays and Tuesdays completely off, and every morning Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday! Saturday and Sundays will be long, doubles Saturday and mornings Sunday but that schedule can definitely work!

So I plan on being very good, exercise most days, eat vegan or vegetarian as much as possible, cook at home whenever I can and save most of what I make. What are your goals today?

Squeaky Clean

I have just picked up my laptop from being cleaned and repaired and a brand new hard drive installed. Now I have the freedom to download Photoshop (yay!) and upload Word 2010. I think I'll try that tonight. Can't wait to start blogging everyday this week. That's my goal anyway seeing as I have the entire week off from the spa. Oh joy!
Hope you all have a wonderful week! See you soon!
