I know I have a problem when I spontaneously take a last minute vacation, and during the entire time I am thinking of what I am going to blog about. If you’re a blogger, you’re thinking, “that’s not a problem, that’s being a blogger” you don’t think about your life in the present anymore, but how it’s going to look and read on a blog.
The REAL problem is when your blog is based on photos that you are supposed (and by you, I mean me, the one with the problem…) to produce PHOTOS, for that blog, and that that person, me , again, the problemogger, has decided to A. not bring her big, professional, heavy expensive real camera with her, and B. has decided to enjoy herself and not think about the next blog/FB status/tweet/phone call/anything…
and the biggest problem, is that after all this thinking and planning and planning not to think … I have so many ideas what to write and ended up with one I hadn’t thought about until I started typing and typed about the problem of having a problem with a blog…and doing it at 1 am, maybe not the most coherent time of day, but probably the most honest.
so…what happened was that the end of summer had arrived, as I had mentioned in my previous post, and people who know me, called me on my little exaggeration and pointed out that I hadn’t really left the computer’s side or seen sunshine, except for dropping off and picking up the kids from camp, and when I did leave the house, it was for real work, mainly on the weekends…so I was thinking of this week ahead of me with the sun blazing in the skies, and the fires blazing in the distance, and my cabin fever rose to 104 degrees, which was only slightly lighter than the temperature outside and I just had to get us out of here. for a real family mini break vacation. You would think after all this story that we went somewhere cool and breezy but instead we went to Palm Springs, for 2 nights, 3 days at the very kid friendly Rancho Los Palmas, with the fantastic little corner, that i so small we thought at first we’d get tired of it after 5 minutes, and this little wet corner is called Splashtopia, and believe me when I say it was all we needed. I know not enough people read my blog to NOT reveal this little splash of heaven, and if you are one of my reades and you didn’t know about this spot, you deserve to know. Because a Friend told me about it, and now I am telling a friend too.
OK ENOUGH with the writing! Enough!!!!!
