What A Long, Strange Trip It's Been

I am really having a hard time coping with the fact that it has been so very long since I have posted on this blog!

I really thought that retirement meant less stress, less "work" and more time ... LOL!

Since retiring things have done nothing but get busier and more complicated!  I'm not complaining (well maybe just a little) but, holy mackerel batman!

I have been absent from this space, but things have definitely not been too calm nor quiet!  I have been creating and teaching and interacting with my loved ones and it really has totally consumed life right now.

We are in the throes of summer and that means that 3 of our grandchildren are with us about 50 hours a week.  Any of you with grandchildren have to know how all consuming this situation is.  We are having fun (mostly) and just trying to get from one day to the next without killing anyone!

I have continued to participate in stamp camps and work with my PJT (Project Give Thanks) group and I am also teaching a monthly class at a local senior center.  There really is not a huge lack of creativity going on right now - just a complete and total lack of time to share that.  But I miss everyone!  

We shall see where things progress from here.  We have a bit more time before the kids go back to school and a bit of time before we head back to Florida and the boat.  I am determined to find a bit more time for a bunch of other things too!

Thanks for hanging in there and thanks for visiting!   Stay tuned for (hopefully) some progress on posting!
