BREAK TIME

It is Friday afternoon. And I did not blog for Thursday. I almost didn't blog for today. Sorry about that. I just needed a little break. We have had a lot of things going on. And it is kind of hard to do umpteen things at one time. Since I'm such a Mega Multi Tasker (NOT!) and can do it all, I find that sometimes there are not enough hours in the day. Kathi tries to help. Plus, I have older parents and try to help them, which I enjoy doing. Other family members seem to need our help also. Things pile up pretty fast.

So, as soon as we can we may try to take some time off and run away from home. Don't know where we will go or what we will do. But Kathi and I seem to always find something that we want to do, whether it is just a road trip for a day or to go to some place to feed our faces, like, Famous Dave's for BBQ. Or to the Cracker Barrel for a meal, or to just get some candy from when we were kids. Even to a Stuckey's in Kansas. (They have LOTS of candy from my childhood!) Or (when they are ripe) picking grapes from a friend of ours. Or picking chokecherries at Red Rocks Park. And once, even going all the way to Cheyenne, Wyoming, for a lunch of Mongolian BBQ.

And don't get me started on fishing trips, or camping, or metal detecting. 'Course, there are times it is nice to hunker down at home and not do a damn thing. Just hang with Kathi and Nugget.

Things just seem to run faster as you get older, and trying to keep up is getting harder also. Nothing like having the mind of a 20-year-old (okay, sometimes it is even more child-ish like), and the body of a 55-year-old. The mind is willing, but the body is saying what the **** are you doing, dummy?!

When I start writing for this blog I get going on a story, and I'm a hunt and peck typer, and the two or three fingers that I use to type with cramp up. I mean, I have even had my legs cramp up while cooking on the grill outside. And I drink plenty of water and take vitamins and all that good stuff.

So, this is going up this afternoon. Maybe we'll just take the weekend and run away.
