Well, ok....

I'll admit it.  I've fallen off the wagon again.  Not with alcohol or anything serious like that.  No, I've fallen off of the "Write in my blog frequently" wagon.  I have not been able to keep up with everything that is going now.  So, I will give an update to show how busy things have been:

Bought a car (which did not take that much time up really)
House hunting (a full time job....seriously)
Finding a house and getting an accepted offer (so much paperwork!)
Getting ready to go to NYC this weekend
Started writing what will hopefully be a novel-length story
Continue to piece together a chap book of poetry to submit in a contest (less than three weeks left!)
My regular job (which has been busier at times)
Rehearsals/practice for orchestra band concerts

That's about it....but it keeps me so busy.  Mainly the house hunting part does, and that might soon be over with this week.  We have an accepted purchase agreement, and now are in the final stages.  Keeping my fingers crossed for sure!

So, once again, I apologize.  Once again, I will say I will try to be better at this.  Once again, I probably wont be as other time consuming things will take the place of house hunting.  So I apologize in advance for it... :)

Too much time on our hands...

I don't think I am the only one to notice this, but the more technology moves along, the more I realize we just have way too much time on our hands.  From vids about cats standing up, rants about celebs (as an every day post), to photos of your nasty number 2s, people just seem to think that since the web allows the posting of anything (so long as it doesn't break a major law), it then becomes an imperative that they do so.

I just thought I would put my two cents and say wtf (which means why the face, right?) to the following:

and this list could go on.  By the way, the first two are websites that links to other websites that are supposedly stupid.  I guess anyway to make a buck, right?

Writer, Poet, Liar

Hey, I wrote a small poem that I thought I would put up on here.... a little meat for those who might read this actually looking for poetry!!  I hope you enjoy.................................

Writer, Poet, Liar

I dream of famine,
Though I’ve never known a day of hunger
I write of lust,
But I only covet necessity
I speak of death,
Yet I’ve never felt a blade full to the hilt of flesh

No, my crime is none of these,
But of innocence lost within the wake

Is this really April 1st?

The high is in the 80s.  The low last night was 56.  Today could be warmer than some spots in Florida....what is going on?  It's crazy, and I love it right now.  I have been biking to work and it's glorious.  So wonderful.... I really can't write too much more because I'm going to just stare out my window and the cloudless blue skies!!  Enjoy your time today as much as I will!
