It seems I’m on a blogging vacation

Hello friends,

Apologies for the long, silent, absence. I’m not sure where the time has gone, but life has been eventful.

Although some of the stuff that’s gone on may sound a bit off-kilter, all is pretty good around here. Just for some brief highlights:

– I drove my scooter into a tree and the insurance company has written it off (yep, I’m okay, it was low speed)

– I’ve ordered a new scooter.

– My eldest had a bad patch of health, which resulted in me calling 911 and a brief stay in the local hospital, but she seems to be better now. No word on what the ‘event’ was, just one of those things.

– The youngest turned 18.

– The youngest left on a plane for Paris the next day. She’s on a 3 week vacation with her BFF around Europe. (She saved the money herself).

So, while all is reasonably well, I find myself even more tired than ever. I’ve got just enough energy to work, sleep, and sometimes cook a meal. I haven’t been tracking my money very well in the last month or so. In fact, American Express gave me a call to see where my payment was. The nice fellow said “you always pay on time, we’re just wondering if it was an oversight?”  Yep, it sure was.

Seems best that I just hang up my blogging hat until Labour Day, and hopefully get enough rest and fiscal control back to be able to share my journey again with you.

I hope you’re having a good summer so far, and I’m still checking in on your blogs every so often. Take good care, and we’ll see you in September!
