short update

Do you ever think you are going to write a killer post, but when you get around to actually doing so, you just don't feel like it? Well, that's me tonight.  I have now forgotten the password to my people tracker thing on here, so I can't even say if anyone is actually reading this.  But I don't care.  One of my closest friends has decided to stop blogging, for reasons I admit I do not understand, but whatever.  Even if I only post here 4 times a year, and even if I only have 3 dedicated readers, I don't really give a rat's ass.  There's something to the blogging world that just.... intrigues... me.  I started blogging on a whim, in 2005, and it soon became an obsession.  And it has ebbed and flowed, just like my beloved tides of the ocean, and that's fine with me.  The thing is, I am grateful that it exists as an option for me.  I was going to construct a post about my friend, who quit the blogging, but I don't even have time for that. What her quitting blogging has done, basically, is to make me realize that I may only blog once a year, but whatever.  It is still there as an option.  And you know me.  I go in fits and starts.  You want consistency?  Go to the professionals.  I am fine with that.  But if you want sporadic news from a hot mess in Saskatchewan?  You've come to the right place.

So, what has happened since I last blogged?  Well, I guess summer hit us.  My sweet family and I found a remote lake in the SK wilderness to spend our summers.  We took our tent trailer for a few weeks to this certain lake, with no water or electric hook ups, with 2 outhouses, and 13 camping spots.  We spent weeks there, fishing, camping, swimming, tanning.  We went with inlaws, were met by friends, and had a great time.  Best camping ever.  I spent the summer in the sun, shirtless, tanned like an Italian.  Actually, I looked Hispanic.  I am still dark.  Anyway, we spent the summer fishing, camping, tanning.  Can't wait for next year.  I've learned how to fish, and camp, and survive without electricity.

Then fall rolled around.  I am so busy at work.  Our numbers have doubled.  I now have a 1/2 time assistant.  I am teaching 2 classes.  I can't keep up.  We have been spending our weekends fishing at the river, catching suckers and pickerel.  I wouldn't trade it for the world.  I am not speaking to one sister, and I have a feeling the other two are getting together this weekend without telling me, but I don't want to think of it.  People with parents - make sure everything is right with your siblings.  When the folks go, everything gets fucked.

Anyway, this is boring so I am going to go on itunes and get some shit.

Miss all y'all.

Lol you and your eloquent guilt trips! The blog world will survive without me. I may not survive without it though AI we'll see what happens. Thankfully I have your digits, your email and all other means necessary to be an emotional burden to you. Oh you can run to the remote lake, but you can't hide.

Thanksgiving sucks for me. You'll recall, I found out about my mom passing the day after thanksgiving, then lost the FIL exactly a year later. Thanksgiving has never been the same for me since. I have a feeling my in laws are also getting together without extending it to us too, but that's fine. Who wants to be around fake tits that much anyway?!
