Nine Months

I just realized that in the time I have been absent from this site I could have had a baby ( no that will never happen just my reference to nine months)

The thought just blew my mind. Where has the last nine months gone. Everyday I start out with the best of intentions and a list of things I intend to do and the day ends with very few actually completed. I have bills waiting to be paid, letters that need to be written and places to go, things to do and people to see and the list just keeps recycling without completion.

There was a time in my life when the days seems endless and time floated by in boredom. Now, I barely get turned around and the new year is smacking years end in the face. It is as if someone is sneaking behind me and readjusting the clocks for the sole purpose of making me late. I barely get my eyes open and ready to start the day and find the stars are coming out and my list of assigned task is still untouched.

Well dear blog, you are not the only one to be overlooked. My personal journal sits with half the pages empty, the napkins and slips of papers with notes on story ideas have moved from a growing pile on my desk to a shoe box on the floor, and soon will have to relocate to larger quarters once again.

Yes, nine months. What has happened in my life in the last nine months. Well, I have had my house invaded, my life turned up side down, lost my job and become partly retired. On the surface I have so much more free time then ever before and still I can not find time to finish all the things the line up each day. Once. I thought of myself as a very organized person but can not seem to get a grip on the insane mess that has invaded my life and my living space.

Well dear blog, I must go and attend to yet another chore and hopefully I will not wait another nine months to return to my original mission here.

Good night sweet blog. Sleep well.
