M.I.A No More

Has it really been over 7 months since my last blog posting? I guess I have to admit now that I am an unreliable blogger. I truly am envious of people that have the discipline and the fortitude to blog daily! It isn't as though I don't have creative and interesting things to say. (Well, at least they seem as if they are creative and interesting when I think about them!) 

It is more just the problem of finding the time to sit and write and find the perfect photos to go along with the text. What with trying to keep my landscape contracting business afloat in these crazy economic times, getting my mom's house sold and moving her to Huntington Beach, trying to get my deceased brother's house sold, and constantly trying to make funding ends meet for Oasis....there is hardly a moment to sit and reflect.

And, if I am going to be totally candid- truthfully...the other problem is that I am a bit of a perfectionist - can't stand the idea of posting something that doesn't seem significant. Ha! I guess I need to get over that and just start posting little tidbits of information on a more regular basis. 

With the time that has already gone by...I realize that I may have lost whatever audience I once had here. In a way, that takes away the pressure! OK...I know I have said this before - but I am going to try to post on a more regular basis. 

What would really help is if anybody who reads this would post a comment or two so that I know that I actually DO have readers. Thanks! 

And, on the off-chance that there are actually a few of you who have checked this blog regularly over the past 7 months...only to be disappointed that there has been nothing new to read....I feel as if I should pay a penance to you for my lack of attention. So, in that spirit... I have sifted through my zillions of photos from Kenya and am posting a some of the truly unflattering pics of myself taken over the years for your viewing and laughing pleasure. 

I love sneaking in a funny face!

On a taxi ride....

Teaching useful skills to the boys!

Modeling a 'gift' from one of the Oasis moms! sigh....

Ok.... penance paid. I'm Missing In Action no more!!!
