Posts Tagged ‘Life; Random Thoughts’

I initially had big dreams for this summer.  I decided to forgo the classes for a variety of reasons.  I wanted to spend more time with Sarah, hit the workouts at Fit Body Boot Camp harder, and make it a summer of getting back outside (camping, hiking, backpacking).  Sounded like a plan at the moment.  Then it happened, this strange pain in my stomach on the way to visit friends in Long Island.  A few days later I found myself in a random walk-in clinic with the PA ordering me to go get a cat-scan at a nearby emergency room.  It was only twelve hours before I would find myself in surgery having my appendix removed.  After weeks of recovery and continued healing, it happened…Summer was gone.  When I walked outside this morning, there was a slight cool crispness in the air, with just a hint of humidity.  It is the first of many mornings that coolness would start to move in.  It occurred to me that based on the current state of my body, travel commitments for work, and the upcoming fall school semester, that most of my original plans were not going to happen. 

This really means nothing other than me rambling and wishing things had turned out differently.  Sarah traveling makes me realize what life is like for her when I am roaming the country.  It throws your own routine out of whack.  I now find myself pondering ideas for the Fall and Winter.  Pumpkin picking, lots of Squash, attempts at canning, and a last minute camping trip await me.  The cool weather also brings more excuses to practice my handcrafted coffee.  Summer is gone, but the excitement of life is not gone.
