Sorry I’ve neglected you

Friends –

I have missed you all.  I can’t believe it’s been so long since I last wrote.  Please forgive me.  I have no good excuse.

So things you might have missed – I went to Door County and camped for a few days with some friends.  Highlights include some planning music for our funerals – no I’m not going to tell you what I picked, I want it to be a surprise – smoked fish and watching the sunset over Green Bay while getting eaten alive by flies.

I broke up with the internet, as in I deleted my dating profile.  I met a guy who I think might have potential and I was finding the whole thing exhausting.  I don’t want to jinx anything but I will say this – anyone who will drive like an hour with traffic to hug you when you’ve had a bad day is worth seriously considering.

I think it’s time to put down the Durango.  Those of you who have known me for a while know that I have had her since 2005.  She served me well for over 150,000 miles ( where did I even go?).  I am hoping now that her final months are peaceful and she can continue to take me to get diet coke until the end of the year.  I’m not going to lie, I’m excited about the prospect of having air conditioning again and all 4 windows rolling down.  We’ll see how this pans out.

But here is the real thing that I want to say.  ALWAYS trust your gut.  You are smart.  Chances are if you think something is happening, it probably is and don’t ever discredit your intuition.  You are strong and capable.
