I visited my own blog today...

... and I discovered that it's woefully out of date. I thought about updating all the little details, but then reason took over (thank you third cup of coffee) and I realized that is pointless unless I have some content for some people to read.

I have several friends with blogs. Talented writers, who have themes for their blogs, and insightful interesting things to write about. I'll be surprised if this becomes that.

It's springtime in the Rockies. This means several things for me.
1. It's baseball season
2. It's the beginning of hiking/fishing/getting outdoors season.
3. It's time to refresh things, clean up old clutter around the house, change my schedule, etc.
4. It's baseball season

So... I have a tremendous amount of stuff in my life. I need to eliminate a lot of it. This isn't easy for me, I grew up with a mom who hoarded things (though generally in a neat and tidy way) and always gave things a lot of value based on sentimentality. I feel both a sincere sentimental attachment to many of my things and an obligation to hold them and love them and protect them for future generations. This is what I was trained to do.

As soon as I'm done typing this, and I've stirred my spaghetti sauce, I will begin to get ready for work. I'm going to try to get ready quickly enough to then take 15 minutes to run around this house and find things to throw away. Then I'm going to drive to work with the windows down, jealous of my son who just took a cute girl on a hike, because the weather is glorious and a hike is just about the most relaxing thing I can think of doing right now.

G-d, I love baseball, and the mountains, and sunshine.
