2. the oregon coast family reunion trip has grown into a much larger monster that originally anticipated. its pretty exciting really, to think about seeing some old cousins. long overdue. many i haven't seen since the last one we had around 8 years ago. and my plan is to kick all of their competitive butts in the little 5k race that's planned.
3. the other day i heard a song and decided i want to learn how to play it on the guitar and sing it to my kids and merv, a song that actually made me teary eyed...i would say the name of the song, but maybe its not relevant.
4. because I work from home, it's often hard to separate work and family and I keep finding that when I am working I feel guilty for neglecting my family, and when I am spending time with my family I feel guilty for neglecting my work. i really struggle with this a lot. the cure all(most): i make sure that I get out of the house and do lots of fun things every week. including plenty of time at the Y for swimming and running, lots of family drives, movie/snuggle time on the couch and a little fro yo earth... the other cure: visits and phone calls from dear friends/family. i love hearing from friends and family.
