Gimme A Break
I've been taking a lot of flak lately for not posting every day...or often enough to suit some people. Give me a break. I have faithfully been at this for over 4.5 years and have posted almost 1100 posts. And all that from or about a tiny island that is only 5 miles long and 1/2 mile wide at its' widest point. Sometimes I struggle and even wonder if there is anything left to say from here.
Plus I write a second blog about my travels in and around Mexico. But I'll admit, I'm a bit behind in updating that one. Even though there is a lot more to say and show you on it. I'll try to focus my attention a bit more on it and bring it up to date.
I find that I can no longer get excited about all of the fishing tournaments held here and various civic events. They all just seem to be the same old thing to me. Perhaps not to you, but it is difficult to get a new angle on the same old same old.
And, believe it or not, I do have a life that doesn't include writing here everyday. Not much of one, but still. Right now is the busiest time of year for us; keeping the rental property in order and tenants happy and visiting with friends that we only see once a year takes up a lot of time. Plus we have the new dog that is demanding a lot of attention. Never a boring moment!
I do have a trip planned that is fast approaching. Carneval (Mardi Gras) is in early March this year and I will be spending it in Merida. I have wanted to see the carneval there for a long time and I am really looking forward to it. We have box seats for both the opening night and closing night parades. I am hoping to get some good pictures from that.
So keep checking back. I have not abandoned the blog by any means. I'm just refreshing my batteries for awhile.
