Isn’t That Convenient?

September 29, 2006

So, here I am sitting in a gorgeous house in the “wilds” of Western Massachusetts. I only brought my laptop so that my smarty designer friend could help me out with a little side project I’m working on (more on that later) but turns out, they have a wireless router, and so here I am. I didn’t think there would be access, so I can’t bring you up to the moment updates about the Big E as I forgot my camera cord at home, so you’ll have to wait. Funny, I sorta was looking forward to an unplugged weekend, but you know the temptation. Is. Too. Great.

I’ll tell you a little bit about my bus ride. Let me first state that I am not making judgments on anyone, but I will say that the ride from Portland to Boston was MUCH nicer than the ride from Boston to Springfield. The people seemed nicer, no one was loud, belligerent, or talking on their cell phones from Portland to Boston. I’m sorry I can’t say the same for the second leg of the journey.

I’m also very very thankful for being afforded the ability to both own and operate a vehicle. I need to be reminded to be thankful for things more often, I think. I think I take things for granted. I think I forget where I’ve been, thinking too much of where I’d like to be…..and not appreciating how far I’ve come. And that other people have not been as fortunate as I am, and have not been afforded the opportunities to succeed that I have. I am blessed.

I also miss my wife. A lot already. I’m sad that she couldn’t join me for fun this weekend. Did I mention I miss her?
