Eight Days

Has my blog content seemed a little "sparse" recently?

I left you with a few quick pre-scheduled posts but the truth is...I have been gone for EIGHT DAYS!

EIGHT DAYS!

Eight days with no punches - no colored paper...

Eight days when the only ink I touched was on the pages of the novels I read...

Eight days with only one 15 minute email check...

WHAT A SHOCK TO THE SYSTEM!

Actually, it was wonderful.
Eight days of waves crashing on the beach.
Eight days of no "have tos" or "ought tos" or "gottas"
Eight days of relaxing with the family at Mission Beach in San Diego
Eight mellow, low key, chill out days....

And let me emphasis that word CHILL - temps in the 60s.   ahhhhhhhhh - how awesome - made even better knowing it was over 100 back here in Texas.  Windows open 24 hours a day - grab a sweater for that early morning walk on the beach...  it was heaven.

We saw some sights, did the zoo & some night life.  The girls para-sailed - hubby jogged a lot - I strolled up and down the beach mornings and evenings- thinking deep thoughts as one is apt to do when alone, right there with all that enormous power and beauty.

While the girls did the bikini on the beach thing, I settled my fat pale self under the umbrella on the 2nd floor patio watching the sun on the waves, reading and listening to the neighbors conversations (when the waves didn't drown them out - I am SUCH a snoop).  I spent a lot of time with my thoughts and my goals and my plans. 

But now we are back to the heat.
Back to reality.
Time to implement the plans I made.
and best of all....

Back to Punching!
