As with all things, I try to keep up on things going on but it seems the blog gets left behind a lot. I think it has a lot to do with the fact that things like Facebook and Twitter have really become the place to “share” things. I have contemplated pulling the plug on here several times but it always comes down to not wanting to get rid of it because I have so much here and so much invested in it. So with that said, here’s a few blurbs from my recent days.
Cottage stuff has actually gone very well. We have rented it for 3 weeks and have 2 weeks more booked. We have now paid off all of the retarded expenses we had because of our … situation with the neighbors. That having been said, it’s nice to be able to know that we’ve got the bills paid and now what comes in will be a bit of padding for us. We can finally enjoy the cottage a bit more without the stress.
Our house on the other hand is another story. Oh nothing even remotely as bad as the cottage. Just trying to find the time to keep things tidy and in order. Last thing I feel like doing when I get home is cleaning the living room or doing dishes, especially since the kids take about 10 seconds to fill the room with crap again anyway. Very tiring and annoying at times but this is what is expected. At least the kids don’t drive me to drink 🙂
My geocaching race went over VERY well this year. In fact, more so than I had ever expected. We ended up with around 100 racers and more people showing up at the BBQ. A LOT of people were there and it was received very well by the folks that attended. A lot of praise passed around which I discovered made me feel very uncomfortable. Very odd. So despite the fact that one person tried to sabotage the race, it went over very well and folks had a good time. I’m anxious to do it again next year but will definitely need some help as it keeps getting bigger every year.
Now that the race is officially over, I think I can start to relax a bit. Tamara’s right in that it does kind of take over me for a time period and when it’s over, I can return to normal. Maybe now I’ll be able to relax a bit. I should go spend some time at the cottage 🙂
