Hey all, as I'm sure you've seen, I have not been on to post since early July. I am slowly getting my groove back and hoping to be spending a little more time writing again. I'm not sure if it's summer that has kept me away or If I'm just really lazy lately. I can tell you, I've not felt very inspired over the past month.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not a "the glass is 1/2 empty" kind of thinker. I'm more of a "my glass is 1/2 empty, so someone better get me a new drink cause I'm almost done this one" kind of gal. However, it occured to me the other day, that I am slacking on alot of things within my life right now so here I am, one little step is still a step right?

My goals for now are to do my best to write at least once per week, it's important to keep the people happy... espicially those folks over at B.C. They are ruthless you know ;) They also make up 90% of my reading audience so I hope they see the joke in that! That's right, you go for that comment box, I dare ya ;)

I will also be starting a new job in the fall taking care of a disabled child, one who I know and adore very much. I'm really looking forward to this as it will allow me to grow as a person and see things through someone else's eyes for a change. And I can't think of anything negative about that whatsoever.

This week should be pretty interesting, I will start my day tomorrow with a visit to a friend who is a professional drag queen and one of the sweetest guys/gals I know .. as long as he isn't trying to stick those damn false lashes on me, we have a wonderful time together.

After that, which could be "hours" later... I am going to go and look at new beds. I've been sleeping on the same mattress for about 3 years now and getting out of bed in the morning is not a joy for me anymore. I look like an old woman with a stick up her arse. and please, I don't want any "granny hate mail" for making that comment. It's just a fact, and if you saw me doing this, you'd most likely agree with me.

Friday, I get to go shopping, I'm so thrilled, I can barely stand it (please note the severe sarcasm here). Grocery shopping for me is what I imagine the 7th level of hell to resemble... Isle's upon isle's of frustration, screaming, rudeness and some of the worst characters in history to contend with.

I just want to go in there and buy some frikkin fruit but no no, I must walk the gauntlet instead. Handing Satan my atm card at the end of the tour and paying him, like this was a fun experience for me. Maybe I should get myself an errand boy! :<)

As for my weekend, I am not going to make any plans and just go with the flow instead. Hopefully by then, I've had an interesting enough week that I can come back here and share a good story or two with you.

I suppose that's it for now, I'll see you all soon ;)
