    Greg and Beth

    the political and personal musings of two
    mountaineers living in west-central Florida

    Just like Greg, I have been pretty busy too. I'm loving my job. I feel like I have a real career now. All the other jobs I've had I felt like I was wasting time and wasting my life for the most part(aside from life changing stint as a camp councilor). I'm happy I enjoy my work and I love the people I work with.

    But it still takes a lot out of you working 40 hours a week and staying on top of all of my responsibilities.

    This weekend I recharged my batteries, as well as rebooted my internal computer. Got to do a lot of thinking and a lot of reading.

    I'd been feeling out of wack lately. Not sure how I really viewed my self and my life. As soon as we were married the pieces started falling in place. But lately I've realized there is a lot more to life than, "Hey I'm married. I know who I am now." No way! I feel like I'm just begining to find that. Most people are independant and then get married. Me i was sooo dependant on people, and now that I'm married I feel like I can take care of myself. I feel like I am strong enough at this point to do anything.

    Maybe it was all I have been through in my life. Maybe it's not until now that I have felt free enough of it to make more of my self. But I do feel free. As great as it does feel, it's still a little bit disconcerting. Not a "normal" winter for me. I'm happy and strong. Still I can't help but feeling a little concerned that something's going to go wrong with my mind and emotions.

    I made a promise to myself to stay stong and I'm doing it. So I read. And read. And read. All weekend. Most people read to escape. For me it helps me to think. LOL I guess it's my fast brain. If I keep part of it busy, the other part can figure things out in a calm way. So after reading 2.5 novels in 2 days, I'm relaxed. my mind is free and I feel more like my self than I have in a few weeks. Maybe that's all I needed was to calm the brain and let the uncontious reboot.

    if you need more stuff to read, go to waldenbooks and ask matt for recommendations. he's super good at that.

    She's read nearly all of the Harry Potter books in one weekend. She was gonna wait until the last one came out in paperback, but I doubt that'll happen, since she (like a lot of other people I know) is hooked.

    By the way, Matt always recommends "Walter the Farting Dog" or whatever that book is called.

    Harry Potter. I read 2,3 and half of 4 Saturday and Sunday. I'm pretty good with books for a while. Greg and I got gift certificates to Books A Million for Christmas and I bought TONS! I read a weird mix of stuff tho. Girly books, business books, and sometimes travel. Loveing the Haryr Potter tho. I suggest it to EVERYONE!
