Rejoining Blogville

September 23, 2008

I want to thank those who have stayed with me throughout the summer. I have limited my posts to Slice of Life Sunday stories. Although I have been busy painting, and yes I am still painting, I have given my remaining time to Slice of Life. It has been mostly a liberating experience but I have to confess that it has also been very difficult at times to “relive” certain events. Some days I have allowed myself to sink into a major depression from these memories. But then I will get a call from a friend or my dad needs me to help with something and I find I can refocus and put the event in proper perspective. Yes, being a part of Slice of Life has helped me accept that there were many things in my life that I had no control over but I do have control over how I now see the event. I have also gained so much joy from reading the stories from other writers. I am currently waiting for a response from a publisher who is reviewing the first two chapters of our book and do hope to have good news soon.

I am looking forward to getting back involved with other memes and visiting other blogs. My 100th post is coming up soon and I would like to do something special to celebrate the accomplishment. Any thoughts?

I have followed the candidates for the upcoming election. I am looking forward to watching the debate this Friday evening. I am one of the undecided voters who needs much more information.

I have also joined a financial class at Kent State University. It has been 10 years since I was in college and I am amazed by the changes. There seems to such a lack of respect for the “college experience.” Maybe it is just my age, and the fact I had to wait over 25 years to have the opportunity to go to college in the mid 90’s, but I think a college education should be appreciated instead of taking it for granted. Many of the “kids” in my class are such whiners and give the Professor a difficult time. I just want to smack them!

I am looking forward to having my grandson Caleb this weekend. My son is taking my daughter-in-law to Michigan for a weekend get-a-way. The weather should be good and I know a game of miniature golf is in my near future.

    I have gotten so much out of Slice of Life but I will admit to occasionally feeling saddened by reliving the memories too. Glad you’re going to post more regularly at the Hearth. Enjoy the visit from your grandson.
