Not to negate the importance of your bad year...but look up.

We love you, FaN.

You are a bright and shiny spot here, so don't forget that.

Maggie, awww schucks.....

Your star shines the brightest because when bad times hit....you kept on going.

Have a safe trip to and from SV. Look forward to your write-up and photos.

Love the vision of you camping by a creek in your own pasture.

You are so right. "Getting away" does not have to cost a lot of $ or time.

Membership and attendance at gyms bumps up ahead of New Year's and then again ahead of the "hit the beach" season but then both quickly drop off.

Here's the thing - it's something you have to actually go do. I would tell myself each time I was leaving the gym that it was the best thing I had done that day but when I was going into the gym I was usually dragging myself in - it's hard to get out of a routine and go but once you do it's a great experience. We are headed out on our last Airstream trip of the year soon and there are at least 100 reasons that we could come up with in terms of why to not go. But we know once we are set up, cooking on an open fire, and swatting at bugs while watching a beautiful sunset and making new friends we'll be having a great time and will be very happy we went!

Don't stay - GO
ha, ha. That is a great analogy. (the gym).

Okay. I'm going to "start pumping."

Hope that last Airstream trip of the year is another good one.

Some great words of wisdom and encouragement already shared. I too would encourage you to just get out and go, even if it is no further than your own backyard. How about moochdocking in a friends driveway overnight? How long does it take you to dewinterize and winterize? Do you really need to for a night or two? Even if you do, a little "me time" will reenergize you for the other demands in your life.

Just do it! You will be glad you did!

"To everything there is a season . . . "

Breathe and relax into your center.

No worries about staying home until you choose to go on a trip.

The next grand adventure may be here already, with patience as its theme?

Happy Trails!

"Moochdocking"? I'm not quite sure what that is, but it sounds awfully nice.

I think many women struggle with "me time." But...I'm going, dewinterized or not! All I need to do is take some gallon jugs full of water (stored in shower) for drinking, cooking, and sponge bathing.

Thank-you, NC.
