What's up with me?


The great thing about a blog is that you can write to yourself. If others read it, fine, but that's not the main point. It really is like a personal journal. Hardly private. So this is what I am doing today.

Tax Day:
I paid my taxes early, no refund, even owed money. My accountant couldn't understand why I paid early, but then he is a Republican.

Learning Turkish:
With headphones, CD player, and instruction book, I am once again trying to learn a little Turkish for our trip to Turkey this June.
Ne haber? "What's up" in Turkish.

I walk almost daily over 5 miles round trip to the health club, workout for another 1 1/2 hours, come home and weigh myself. So far I have gained about 15 pounds from what I weighed when I came back from Samoa.

The return to the joy of reading novels and the short walk to the library are now rituals. I don't seem to have enough time in the mornings for this pleasure.

I am trying to create a super blog from the closeted boxes of photograph albums and journals of past trips, adventures, events, and whatever. This is a bigger task than I orginally thought, taking longer than I thought. However, I am releasing my progress to date soon.

Trip planning:
Mary and I are invited to five weddings this summer. We are planning trips to Turkey in June, a train trip to Philadelphia and points East in July, a trip to Belgium and some other Eastern Europen countries in August/September, and trip to the bank for a loan soon.

Foreign exchange students:
Today, two of the German exchange in my program are joining some others for a trip to the Black Hills. Unfortunately I am unable to join them. However, I am planning on taking them on a trip to Duluth.

Samoa never seems to disappear. There are daily blogs, email, Facebook, text messaging, Skype, and "Survivor" on TV. All help to keep me in touch.

Well, there is probably more. But enough already!
