You're Gonna Miss Me!
I’m headed to the cottage again.
You will miss me. Yes, indeed, you will!
This is my first summer blogging and I’ve noticed the slow-down, the lack of posts. Makes perfect sense. People are on vacation.
But I’ve been one of the regulars – faithfully posting (well, almost every other day) and leaving comments.
This is also the first summer in many years I’ve spent so much time in the city. It’s strange. The neighbourhood is very quiet.
If I had great Internet connection up North, I’d probably keep in touch. But I don’t (which I’ve bitched about on previous posts) and so trying to keep tabs on the blog world is painful, frustrating and bordering on hopeless.
This is my second week at the cottage this summer. I’m hoping things go well this time. No unexpected or unpleasant surprises. I just want to enjoy the company of my family. My sisters will once again be at their cottages on either side of mine.
I just want to be…
I want to be the me I once was - which I know can’t ever really happen.
But perhaps I can recapture just a little bit of that “me” up there – away from the seemingly endless matters which are part and parcel of dismantling a marriage.
I’m ready to drink coolers at the dock and have laughing fits with my sisters.
I’m ready to tackle the snapping turtle (with what I don’t know) and kick ass if I see a bear. Okay, I would run like hell if I saw a bear even though I think you’re supposed to either stand quietly and/or back up slowly. (Like that’s gonna happen.)
I’m just ready to relax.
But I’ll miss my blog friends. Throughout this long, hot summer you’ve all been a godsend. Thank you for that.
