Wednesday Hodgepodge

The Wednesday Hodgepodge is something else I have missed doing. The questions are always fun, and the community at From This Side of the Pond is great. I feel most energized when I ... have a day equally laced with productivity and relaxation. Where were you ten years ago? It's easiest for me to think about what my kids were doing then.

We were trying to be people we were not. I would have done things so differently 10 years ago, because this is the time that I can pinpoint when things went all wrong.

Since I am upstairs, all I really see is a tree across the street, which is perfect! It gets me into nature first thing in the morning. I am thinking ... about so. many. things. I'm a thinker, an internalizer. This is why I really need to get back into a consistent habit of blogging. I am thankful ... for my life. That is truth. I have a home I love, a job I love, children who fulfill me, the most amazing and entertaining grandson ever, books to read, wine to sip. This is a good life. One of my favorite
