Spring Cleaning

We have been experiencing the BEST weather here in Iowa.  I went from Hawaii to … Hawaii?  Is this Iowa? Well … there are no oceans nearby but we do have an amazing river that flows through our town. I went downtown on St. Patrick’s Day for the first time in years… just to go downtown. I was carefree like I haven’t been since… well, I have no clue!  Our city experienced the power of a river and after several years it was exciting to see all the life and rebuilding that was happening.  Carefree was everywhere.

I have been contemplating that day as well as the last few years.  I feel like I am coming back alive too.  It’s not a super deep blog.  It won’t be long or super insightful.

I’m just thrilled to have a clear head and as I type this I realize I have had no pain today.  If you know me, you know it’s been a tough row.  If you don’t know me then you probably have just thought I was a little standoffish.  I still am reserved until I know you but even to those I knew… I had taken to hibernating.  If you didn’t think that well … watch out!

This town and this gal are back!  Spring is in the air and movement is happening here and everywhere!  I spent the last few days clearing my house and spring cleaning.  Tranquil is a new word I have been introduced to in a way I won’t bore you with but it’s funny how things happen in your life at certain times isn’t it?  Yep … clean mind, clean body, clean home and life is full of possibilities.

One thing I learned… when my house is a mess – I AM A MESS.  If you come over and I won’t let you in or swear you to secrecy?  I need a glass of wine…or two.

It’s been a DISASTER here for a REALLY LOOONG TIME.  My staff… will be happy to know that the gag rule, has been lifted.

Carry on friends.
