Back for More Fun…

Hello World.

My absence from the blog has once again been marked by major life upheaval – last June-December I was changing jobs and commuting 4 hours and during this hiatus, we moved to the Big Apple.  It also isn’t really in my vocabulary not to be perfect, so the more I didn’t write, the more I didn’t want to write and admit that I hadn’t wrote, and the vicious cycle continued.

But a few days ago, a co-worker asked for tips about traveling to Asia, and I directed her here.  That night, I also sat down and re-read through our all of our Asia trip posts from Jan 2011 and what a hoot that was!  I kept hitting Drew, saying ‘we are so funny!’ And, of course the inevitable, ‘when are we doing a trip like that again??’

Well, until that time comes, it seems a little silly to let a perfectly good space on the Interwebs sit idle.  Even though we’ve been busy moving from Maine to NYC, downsizing, adjusting to city life, and working our butts off, I have still found time to pursue my yearly goals, and knock a few items of my life list.

Also, now that we live in what many people consider to be THE CENTER OF THE UNIVERSE, it seems only fitting that I fill some space talking about what our life is shaping up to look like.  I mean, who doesn’t want to hear about how it took me 2 hours today to go to the farmer’s market, grocery store and drug store.  Because I had to walk.  In 85 degree heat.  Ok, I’m totally not complaining about weather – figure I should be done with that after moving away from the Arctic – but it just comes so easily for me!

In order not to derail to quickly, I’m putting a few rules in place for myself to encourage regular writing.  First, carry my camera with me.  Not my fancy DSLR, but my little point and shoot.  The more pics I take, the more likely I am to want to share them with someone other than Facebook.  Second, write on the train.  I commute (I’m the queen of commuting, though this is my shortest in many years!) via train, so I have about 5-6 hours per week of uninterrupted time.  Sometimes I do have to do ‘real work’ but other times, I’m plowing through books or watching other wearing commuters.  Add this to the list!
