If you haven’t noticed already, my blogging frequency has decreased quite a bit lately. There is a good reason for this.
A lot of things have changed with me recently, changed for the better really. The main reason I started this blog wasn’t because I wanted the “experience”, the true reason was I was ridiculously bored at my job day after day and needed something to do to pass the time. So in an effort to look busy I started writing blogs and the boss never caught on. Well, after 5 years of miserably sitting behind a computer doing the same thing, day after day after day, I finally took a leap of faith and quit my job. I have a new job now, playing with horses and dogs all day long, cleaning out horse stalls, feeding, walking, exercising….it’s hard work, a lot of manual labor and I LOVE it.
Obviously with the new job, I don’t really have much time to write during the day and to be honest when I get home, if I have free time, I’d rather spend it doing something else. I still love writing but I just don’t want it to become something that I feel like I have to do.
Anyways, enough of that…let’s talk about something fun.
I’ve made it no secret that I’m not overly crazy about children. I have nothing against those of you who like the little critters, in fact I have the utmost respect for you. So imagine my surprise last Sunday when the preacher’s wife approached me and asked me if I would join them an be a sponsor for the upcoming youth camp. I wasn’t shocked that she asked, no, that’s to be expected, what shocked me was the fact that I said “yes” without the slightest hesitation and actually was (and still am) excited.
I heard the words: canoeing, hiking, archery, swimming, fishing, and camping and failed to hear the all important words: kids and ages 5-18.
So in two days I will be piling into a car with a handful of whippersnappers all ready to go to camp and cause all sorts of trouble and I’m the one responsible for making sure they don’t kill themselves (or more likely, keeping myself from killing them.) It should be a very interesting 4 days of my life.
Wish me luck!
