God Bless This Hot Mess

Graphic design by Baxter Orr
Things are nuts.  I had three days off of work (led to five days of chasing my toddler around), and now things are totally blowing up.  Work is really busy.  It's great.  I've been spending a lot of time outside for work too, which is great.  But I am sooooo behind.

I haven't been fishing in two weeks (unacceptable), and the garden is just barely starting to get back under control.  Forget about turkey hunting - not gonna happen.

So what's been going right? Well.......plenty.  I've lost almost 20 pounds in the last two months, with another 20-30 to go.   Work is busy, as I mentioned, but it's worth mentioning again because I serve in a leadership role at a small non-profit, so "busy" is very important.

Because I haven't spent enough time playing outside recently, I don't have a lot of fun blogging to do.  As you may have seen around here recently, I've been writing some pretty heady articles about the ethics of meat eating, and other conservationy ethicsy kind of stuff.  That's fine, too, but I am yearning for the fun stuff.

Another week or so, and I should be back in the pocket...

Another week after that, and my new fishing kayak will be delivered.....

Fishing kayak eh? Looking forward to hearing all about it.

On a side note...can I have your 20lbs? Need it in a bad way. Congrats on losing it!

Sounds like you deserve a break. Can't wait to hear about the yak.

Yeah, I've lost 18 or so at this point, despite an Easter in NC, my birthday, several open bar/open food fundraisers attended, etc. It's not been easy but this time I'm in it for the long haul. I hope.

I've got high hopes for the 'yak. I traded in my 10' Riot Chaser (a sit-in fishing kayak) for a 12' Emotion Mojo Angler (a sit on top). More on the boat when I actually get it!
