Blogging is dying????

I know that blogging has died out for many, many people and some only do it sporadically now, but I've been pretty consistent for 12 years. 12 years of my life is basically chronicled here. So much has changed in 12 years. We lived at the ranch then and I worked in the lab. Now I'm a teacher with almost a Ph.D. and we are living in Arizona. Hubby is semi-retired and life is really good. I always wonder about people who plan out their life in detail. I never had a plan. Most of the time I didn't know what I was working towards or where I was going. But I have friends who have every aspect of their life planned; when and how many kids they will have; jobs they will have; where they will live; etc. I've pretty much rolled with the punches and think I've done pretty well for myself. I haven't done things when others have, but I have a lot of experiences that others never get. I've worked at a number of different places and made a ton of friends all over the place. I've gotten degrees and learned things others never will. While I think sometimes, that I wish I had done X or Y, I realize that my life would have been very different and I'm not sure I'd want to change it. Yes, I wish I had done some things different, but overall I'm very happy with the way my life turned out. Okay, not exactly sure where this came from, but there you have it. One thing I have learned over 12 years is that this thing can be very therapeutic if I let the words just come. I have discovered lots about myself by just letting the writing flow. I have also found answers to some complex problems by just writing. I've been thinking a lot lately about my life and where it's gone and where it's going and I think that is where this all came from. We have made a huge life change and I guess it's natural to reflect on it at times. Moving on.....

So I finally got over being sick, but going back to work after a week off took its toll. I was tired and cranky all week. I hope I get over that this weekend. I don't like feeling like that. I had plans to just force myself to workout last week. Treadmill in the morning, bike to and from work, Crossfit. But it just didn't quite work out. My foot bothered me after Monday and I was just completely exhausted all day Tuesday. Not sure what to do at this point, but I need to work out more. So I'm thinking about that. I know that it will hurt and I'll be tired initially. But I also know that I will get over that and the energy will come. So I need to find a balance to get through the initial exhaustion stage. I'm working on that. Today will be a fun filled day. We are going to the dog park this morning. Then it is off to a farmer's market to check it out. Then the pet expo in Tolleson. After that it's home to get some things done around here. My goal today is to get things done and not take a nap. Wish me luck.
