I've fixed myself some tea but with it, I ate cookies and with that, I feel guilty. These feelings always come when I am not well---like a heap of jello-o I am right now. How can I feel tired and without energy when I haven't done anything? I'm telling you this so that I am accountable for my actions...not a pleasant posting, I'm afraid, but quite real. And I am, in fact, THE REAL GIRL, right?
Well, while I'm here I'm going to tell you about our drive to Estes on Sunday---you must be asking yourself, "Why do you keep going up there?" Well, it is because we are trying to figure out what to do with the rest of our lives and I'm feeling stuck. Afraid to move forward and change the course of life.....will I see my girls often enough? Will I be available to my mom if she takes ill or needs me and she lives so far away in AZ? Will we be successful at our business? Will we? Won't we? Why should we? We go round and round. When we go up there, we are inspired by the grandeur of the landscape. We love the wildness of it and yet its close proximity to necessities. We love the mountains and the trees and the lakes and the rivers.....but we also love the home we're in right now. Why rock the boat?
So, I'm tossing my questions to the Universe for today and I'll concentrate on getting well. It is only with a full spirit that I can make such big decisions anyway. Take a look through my camera lens of what we saw on Sunday--pardon many of the pictures taken through the car window. I was beginning to get a sore throat on Sunday and didn't want to go out into the cold air much. What tough decisions have you made in your life and how did they turn out? I'd love some inspiration....thank you for letting me rant.
and, if you want a little smile, go to see MozartsGirl's blog....and learn how Rachel prepared for the Oscars that never came to be; you will LOVE it!! Rachel's OSCARS night
|big horn sheep came across road to Estes & blocked traffic; they eat the salt that is put on road|
|not afraid of cars at all!|

|herd of elk right in downtown area- look closely & u can see 'stupid' tourists getting WAY too close and snapping pictures---elk are pretty docile when it's not mating season but they ARE wild animals|
