Yes, you heard it here folks, I'm a bad blogger (as if you didn't already know that)! It has been many weeks since my last blog post and at least a week since I read anyone else's. I can't remember the last time I left a pertinent comment on any of your blogs (maybe never) and I do apologize for that.
I guess I've just been too busy living life to the fullest to take the time to write about it. Between my crazy work schedule and my fun-filled personal life, I've got little time left over for sleeping, let alone blogging. I wish I did, because some very interesting and fun things have happened since I last updated and I even have the pictures to prove it if only I had time to download them and organize them into files.
For example; my brother and I threw a birthday party for one of the men at the nursing home where dad stays. Danny turned 65 on December 5 and Mike and I both took vacation to be there for him. He doesn't have much family and they don't visit often. Danny enjoyed the birthday party we threw for dad so much that we decided he needed one too. Danny's favorite activity is bingo so I had a friend make him a huge bingo cake. We brought gifts and balloons and nearly everyone at the nursing home came. It was a fun-filled, joyous occasion for all of us.
Another example; I had not been to a movie in a theater since Austin Powers (the first one) came out, and in the last 6 weeks I have been to 4 of them! I saw "The Bee Movie", "Hairspray", "Across the Universe" and "The Golden Compass"!
I had not been to a house party in literally decades and I have been to two of them in the recent past! I had a blast both times!
I've made new friends, gotten reacquainted with old ones and spent more time with my family than ever before.
It has been a wild ride, but a fun one. And to be honest, it's only beginning. I am happier than I ever thought I'd be and all because I'm letting go, living in the moment and opening myself up to life and love.
I highly recommend it.
