In the swing

I'm not sure why, but I'm feeling a lot more compelled to post than I have for a while. Not that I have much to say...but why let that stop me? A lot of posts have been devoted to this "will I/won't I" writing business, even back to the very early days, but that was more about freqency than anything else. Do you realize that I've been keeping this blog since December 2004? Is that crazy or what? I'd like to say my life has changed a lot...but, while things have happened, and things are different, I'm not sure how much my life has changed fundamentally. I will say, I am still trying to figure out how to get to more regular exercising. My default mode is just so much laziness--it's amazing how large my capacity for sitting around is. I blame it on a small case of the blues and the extremely hot weather. I can't get outside without a major persperation melt down. It's awful and makes it hard to combine an energetic walk with an indoor activity. Do I really want to grab a beer when I'm going to have sweat running down my face for the first ten minutes? Ugh.  

But, after delaying for most of the day, I did go out for a good long walk yesterday. I sweat a lot, but I wore a cap, which helped. And my plan was to get some gelato--which I did! Everyone getting ice cream is hot already, right? So no one cares.  The big problem with wearing a cap with my current hair is that said hair is ruined underneath a cap--so wearing a cap, which helps with the sweat issue, makes going some place where one might want to be semi presentable bascially impossible. This hair is too short to even be all shoved under the cap. Sigh. I think I need to dig out those old head/sweat bands I used while I was playng soccer, where caps were forbidden. I found them necessary to keep the stinging sweat out of my eyes. I suppose they could serve the same function while walking and NOT ruin my hair. I'll have to look into that...

Aren't you glad I'm writing again? Ha!

Grateful for: inspiration.


  1. Yeah, I'm glad that you're writing again. I was a bit worried that you'd close the blog. That will happen sometime but thankfully not yet. I still want to read it from the start, one of my "long-term" projects.

  2. "Me," you are too kind. Hopefully I'll have more interesting things to say eventually, but for now, it's more a document of my time--my diary, as it were. You're gonna read the whole thing? Let me know if you think it still "works"! :)
