Because I’m Tired, That’s Why

A week with the niblings. A few days in the Pacific Northwest. Time to reconsider my direction in life. That is the reason behind my silence the last few weeks. Now, as I prepare to write about the visitors and the visiting, I will entertain with a procrastinatory meme, courtesy of — who else? — Hannibal.

BLOG MEME: Q&A

I HATE: masses of people

I MISS: summers off.

I HEART: the open road.

I REGRET: more things that I haven’t done than I have done.

I LIKE: catching up with friends.

I FEAR: zombies.

I DANCE: when only my cats are looking. And sometimes not even then.

I SING: when no one — including myself — can hear me.

I SHOULD: follow a new direction in life.
