Excuse my French. I don’t cuss much. (Only when I’m super mad. Then watch out. Not only do the bad words fly, but sometimes even my fists, depending on just how mad I am. Oh, yes, it’s hard for some to believe but I do have a temper and I’m not afraid to use it when it blows!)
However, most times I’d rather find a clever way to turn a phrase rather than going for an expletive just anyone could use. However, “shot to shit” perfectly sums up what’s so far happened to all the plans I’d had for Haunt Jaunts in 2011.
Three trips I figured were going to happen this year were San Francisco, Vegas, and New York City.
San Francisco still might, but it’s not looking as good as I first hoped. Vegas is off. New York should still be a go. One out of three ain’t bad, I guess.
Also, I can’t really complain. I get to go to New Orleans unexpectedly as well as on a spur of the moment cruise. This time we’re headed to the Western Caribbean with chances to scope out some Mayan ruins. (Plus do some snorkeling!) Didn’t see that one coming! I got my waterproof camera so now I’m all set for this jaunt.
NO TALK TALK
When Chuck Manning of Global Paranormal approached me at the end of last year about the radio show he’s putting together I was flattered. I’m a natural ham so any chance for public speaking I’m all for.
However, I was blinded my my own vanity. I launched another blog this year (unrelated to anything paranormal, but if you’re interested in my life as an aspiring bestselling author juggling a stay-at-home wife life feel free to check out my SAHW Experiment.) I’ve also got two books in the works. Along with my travel, tennis and volleyball commitments, I barely am keeping up as it is.
Chuck’s show is going to be weekly. I won’t have time to prepare weekly material for that along with everything else I’ve got brewing, so I had to unfortunately back out. No talk talk for me. (Except for whatever videos I concoct.)
TRAVEL GUIDE AND CALENDAR
Because of all the other stuff I’ve got going on, I haven’t had time to even look into getting the calendar going. That’s okay. I still have time, but it likely won’t be for a 2012 calendar.
Hopefully the world doesn’t end next year and I have a chance to try and pull it together for 2013.
But my travel guide…it might not get published this year, but it will be done. At least that’s still on target!
But all I gotta say is, “Shoosh! If January is any indication how the rest of 2011 is going to be…whoa! It’s a good thing I’m flexible and adaptable. Seems like I’m going to be tapping into that store a lot!”
