20 Jul 2008   Life

Well... It seems that I've really dropped the ball again.   I promise myself I'm going to do more writing, and then I get too busy with other stuff and let the writing drop off again.   Since its been several months since I last wrote anything, I suppose now is as good a time as any to get back to it though.

I'm finding many things to fill time.   Generally there isn't much challenge to filling time I suppose.  I end up with far too many things to fill my time with.   Until the last couple months, my big filler has been sailing.   Lately I've been too busy with other activities to even make it out sailing, and I've really been missing the water too.

There truely is nothing like sailing.   It can be a lot of hard work, but the work is immediately rewarded as well.  It is also very relaxing to get away from all the noise of life, even if it is only just for a relatively short period of time.  I've been doing a lot of sailboat racing, in addition to just getting out on the water and cruising around.

I have also been doing a lot of thinking about my personal priorities and goals lately.   I have finally started to get busy on the remodeling work that needs to be done to my house.   It will certainly not be a quick process, but at least its finally in motion.   I suppose it really just required finding some real motivation to start working on the project.  My motivation is kids.   No - I'm not having any kids right now - nor am I getting married any time soon.   I have always had a desire to have kids though, and that longing has not dimished with time.  I am currently working through the process of becomming a foster parent, which is where I'm finding my motivation to get my house put together.

I've got a lot of work to do on the house before I'm ready to get too deep into the process of becomming a foster parent, but with a bit of effort, I may be close in about a year.

While it would be silly to promise regular updates through the process of updating my house and everything, given my history at consistently writing, I will make an effort to post regular updates.

Till next time...
