Ideal Place to Vacation in the Fall

With Fall fast approaching, my ideal place to vacation would be…


…someplace flat, where you can see the sky!



…someplace close to home with lots of beautiful leaves!

Thanks to Sarah for the inspiration!

So, where would your ideal place be to vacation in the Fall?


Monday Moments – ???

We’re back home from a more than 1600-mile round trip to Texas to see the newest member of our family… my niece, Sarah.  She’s a doll!

I don’t know why, but when I return from these types of trips, it seems to take me awhile to get back into the swing of things.  I think a lot of it may have to do with my depression.  (I’ve “suffered” clinically-diagnosed depression for about 15 years.)  Also, it’s my husband’s first day back on the job, so he’s not here to help motivate me.  He has called to encourage me, but I seem to do better when he’s here at home.

I know I don’t have much of a readership (if any) on this blog, but maybe that’s a good thing.  Then, people won’t see my rambling, journal-istic schmuta.  (Not sure how to spell schmuta.  I think Elaine on “Seinfeld” coined the word.)

Columbus Day – Paddington Bear’s 50th Birthday

Today’s the day we ‘celebrate’ Columbus Day.   Why do we celebrate it?  How do we celebrate it?

Also, thanks to Google, we’ve been informed that it’s Paddington Bear’s 50th Birthday.  Seeing this on Google makes me think of a friend’s recent blog post about Google’s choices for ‘special’ logos.  (If only I could remember which friend…)  🙂

Too many blogs!

I have way too many blogs started.  Perhaps I should just stick with the main one.  I like HSB (homeschoolblogger) except that it’s not easy for non-HSB’ers to leave a link to their own blog.  They can leave a comment, but leaving a ‘clickable’ link just doesn’t work.

Another ‘problem’ with my multiple-blog syndrome is discerning whether or not I should share my real name with everyone.  I don’t know why I’m worried.  I don’t have a very big “following,” and it’s not like my real name is that ‘different’.  I.e. People aren’t likely to see my real name and say, “Hey, I know exactly who that is!”

In case anyone is interested, I think this is the official list of all the blogs I have ‘floating’ around cyberspace:

I think if I could figure out how to make this WordPress blog have all the links and codes that I have on my HSB blog, then I might switch.  I dunno.

As I type out this blog entry, I’m getting really frustrated because both FireFox and IE are giving me fits.  Perhaps it will be better once my husband is able to make the changes to the PC that he’d like to make.
