imagine the sound of a cassette tape on fast forward

mixed in with the sounds of drills, falling rubble, concrete setting, dust flying, snow lashing the windows, wood warping in the chilly house, lonesome and dark. (do lonesome and dark have a sound?). fast forward again with more banging and sawing and hemming and hawing and toes warming in cold upstairses where i grew up and stews stewing and sanding, sanding, sanding , sanding, sanding, sanding, then much vacumming and gathering up of stuff. Ding, dang, dong - we're BACK! back in the darned ol, fabulous new house.
yeah, i stayed away from the blog a long time. i think it was fear of pretentiousness, fear of this becoming a blog about The Reno That Ate My Brain.
also, lack of high speed internet.
and heck, i was busy!
well, that' s over.

blog post subjects under consideration:
  • are my kids watching too much tv? (answer: yes)
  • groups/families - mine
  • boxing kangaroo pens
  • road trips i would like to take (this subject inspired by boxing kangaroo pens)
  • window coverings of my life, past and present
  • fear
  • education
  • fear of education
  • all-terrain vehicles i would prefer my neighbour didn't own
  • how i should spend the next ten years of my life
  • how to be good (nick hornby already wrote a book about this that i didn't like very much but maybe i need to read it again, now that i'm a little older)
