Summer Softball!

My Dad played in a softball tourney in Edgar, WI last weekend. His team took first place in the 2-0 bracket!

My Dad is in the back row, fourth one in from the left, dark green shirt.

There are many opportunities to learn about yourself when you take a road trip vacation.

Here is a sampling. On my summer road trip vacation, I learned...

...that minimizing material possessions reduces stress. to laugh after a big fall.
...that I need to expand the adjectives in my vocabulary beyond "wow" and "fun."
...ravens will peck away at your windshield wipers if you do not cover them (the wipers) with towels. air matress is a blessing.
...that disconnecting from the web and cell phones is a fabulous thing. is a habit of mine to put the needs of others way beyond mine (to a point of not saying how I really feel when asked). can't actually go into the Goonie House - it's privately owned.
...America is an amazing country and I need to explore more of it.

crazy little thing

it's a crazy little thing.
crazy because it does not go as planned.
and i am fond of a good plan.
maybe i should only plan on today.
today is here and going fine.
if i plan for tomorrow and tomorrow never comes then what good was all that planning?
but if i don't plan for tomorrow then how can i move forward?

i think i need to plan.
plans are good.
but the plan needs to stay flexible.
like play doh.
