On Going Woo Woo

July 29, 2016

Where to begin? These last three months have been a super struggle for me. It just seemed to be that nothing would go right. We were working on a remodel and it was literally one thing after another. These weren’t the good kind of surprises. Details were over looked. Workmanship sucked. The management of the project was poor. And that was the stuff that was…

In the aftermath of tragedy this week, I’ve been angry. I’ve been sad. I’ve been dejected, downcast, and so unnaturally muted. My experience in the world this week has been numbed. I, usually the one with the untamed happiness.

Adventures in Tico Time

January 22, 2016

As they were loading our things, el Tico said, “Fragile?” and very seriously I said, “Si! Vodka!” He stopped a minute, gave me a hard look, crossed himself, gave me a big toothy grin, patted my bag gently and put my case aside to make sure it was on top. I love this country!

This is exciting. No, I mean really exciting. I have tested our trip leader and she is not flappable. You are welcome, trip-mates. I tried. I really, really tried. I, however can be completely counted on for excitement. As if you doubted for one second that it would be boring to travel with me. Bawhahahaha. Oh, no. I sit here typing madly on an adrenaline fueled junkie…
