I’m taking a break from working out at the gym because of all the responsibilities I’ve taken on or had thrust upon me.  Lets see, lets make a list, shall we? 

86 year old mom; rotting deck removal & replacement; accounting classes due to no more engineering jobs; volunteering at a Habitat House construction; and to top it all off, I have a cold that won’t go away.

I’m dragging myself around, my legs feel like lead and I keep wanting to fall asleep at odd times. 

Ok, enough of that.  Have you had dreams of what you would really like to be doing?  I have.  All my life, what I really wanted was to have a little cabin in the mountains; no electricity, no running water, no phones, no neighbors (at least not close enough to see from my windows).  Tall evergreens, snow in the winter, rain in the summer, surrounded by snow capped mountains and evergreen trees as far as I can see.  That was my dream, and still is.

My favorite view - the mountains!

My favorite view - the mountains!

Do you have any idea how hard it is to do that?  It’s impossible is how hard.  It takes money, and I don’t have it.  Well, not be too down, I love living in the Pacific Northwest and I can run off to the mountains any time I can get away from my responsibilities, which isn’t very often, but at least I can see the mountains from where I live, and they are only an hour away!

Tell me your dreams and how you have or have not accomplished them – and if not, how you plan on doing them.
