I'm not used to being stressed out. I generally have a carefree attitude with the motto, "I'm a duck." Sometimes letting it roll is easier than others.

Here's my horoscope for this week:

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): "The Amazing Race" is a reality TV show in which two-member teams compete for money and prizes by doing odd feats in exotic locales. One especially stupid and awesome task they performed was carrying 50-pound wheels of cheese down a slippery hill in
Switzerland. Everyone started out hauling the wheels on cumbersome wooden backpacks, but hardly anyone was able to make it to the bottom without falling, breaking the backpacks, and having to manually herd the runaway cheese the rest of the way. I foresee a similar fate for you, Leo. You'll be asked to do things that are both fun and frustrating, all in a cause that in the long run will be worthwhile.

What's amazing is how many areas of my life this could refer to.

Work? Definitely.

Bluegrass Festival? Hell yes.

Family life? You know it.

I continue to feel blessed by my life but boy oh boy, shew doggie... sometimes sure are easier than others.

So why the post? I guess its an explanation as to why I have been shirking my blogging duties, as well as a reminder to myself that I need to let it roll and that this is for something bigger.

Hang in there girl. Not just because I want my wife to be happy (which I do) but because if you lose it, there is no way I will be able to keep it together.

This too shall pass.

Just checking in on you and glad to see that you're back to writing again. Of all the people I know I never doubt that you can handle whatever you are given. I really do aspire to be more like you in many ways. Keep it up, I know you'll be fine!
