how soon is now?25 February 2012
Today is February 25, 2012. My first post in quite a long time. For the most part, things have stayed the same, though I must say, I am poised for a change! Some things that are different:
-the kids are older. Rockstar boy is now 6 years old, and Lil C is now 4 years old.
-we renovated our house. I’m not sure if I even posted anything about us renovating our house. In any case, we moved back in last May 2011, and we are much happier with our new space. At least, I am much happier with the new space. However, I know realize that we are quite locked in. That is, thoughts of moving to anywhere else are not at all realistic.
-I’m older. I’ll be even older come July.
-I’m writing this post on a brand new computer! A MacBook Pro to be exact! It hasn’t exactly changed my life, but hey, it’s much faster than my old computer!
I realize last year that I did not leave the country at all! And I usually try to do at least one trip. But we were working on our house, so any other added expense was just not in the picture.
This year, however, I am going to a brand new place! I decided to treat my mother to a Mother’s Day-and-birthday trip to Turkey! It’s a place both she and I have not been to, and a change of pace from going to Europe. Then our mother-and-daughter trip expanded when I invited two of my other friends to join us (Girlie, and my co-worker Priya). So now, it’s a big girls’ trip! We are leaving the first of May, and I cannot wait.
I also have a pending trip to San Francisco. I never ever travel for work, but am actually going to a Forensic Evidence seminar in San Francisco of all places this coming March…and the whole family is coming with! It’ll be a mini-vacation of sorts…I’m also working on a trip to Aruba if everything falls into place!
But for now, I have this picture on my work desktop…something to envision and take me away when all else gets me down.
