a quick check-in

Monday, March 26, 2018

Had a nice visit to the beach with friends on Saturday (day trip for a wedding). Played in my 2nd hurling match of the season yesterday (a little sore, but I sure do love playing). Today I worked the floor and got 8000+ steps in. Mood is much improved. I got to meet the mother of the bride (coworker/friend of mine) and looking at her I thought "Crap! She's my age!" I don't feel old enough to have a daughter in her 20's. It doesn't matter that my niece is 28 and her mom is 2 yrs younger than me. I've no concept of age whatsoever. But between that, the dolphins swimming around, and memories welling up...I needed to go to the ocean. Oceanography and plate tectonics were my biggest career interests growing up. One I got there, it lasted 2.5 years. Then I felt lost. No real long-term goal to take it's place. That was over 25 years ago and I still get these cravings. UGA has a program with toxicology and public health for "Oceans and Human Health" -- that would combine the oceanography, chemistry, environmental science (first career) and nursing (2nd career). Interest flared up again, but it's okay. I can read about it while I'm kicked back on my porch swing. And then there's the garden to plant -- Grow Food Not Lawns is one of my favorite mottos. If I quit chasing so many "squirrels" I'd have even more time....

I digress.....

Life is good. Having options is good. At one point I didn't feel like I had any options. It's amazing what happens when you crawl out of your cocoon and stretch your wings!

    Have you considered taking classes without pursuing the whole program? It seems all the classes I've taken lately have been related to my job. Maybe it's time for a change....
