Inconclusive Travel Plans

2012 Blast from the Past …

I’ve been in many places, but I’ve never been in Cahoots. Apparently, you can’t go alone. You have to be in Cahoots with someone.

I’ve also never been in Cognito. I hear no one recognizes you there.

I have, however, been in Sane. They don’t have an airport; you have to be driven there. I have made several trips there, thanks to my friends, family and work.

I would like to go to Conclusions, but you have to jump, and I’m not too much on physical activity anymore.

I have also been in Doubt. That is a sad place to go, and I try not to visit there too often.

I’ve been in Flexible, but only when it was very important to stand firm.

Sometimes I’m in Capable, and I go there more often as I’m getting older.

One of my favorite places to be is in Suspense! It really gets the adrenalin flowing and pumps up the old heart! At my age I need all the stimuli I can get!

I may have been in Continent, and I don’t remember what country I was in. It’s an age thing. They tell me it is very wet and damp there. 🙂 The end. Author unknown.

SAVE THE HUMANS. 

PEACE.

10 Years Later

After Buddy passed in 2009, tilegypsy.com was born as a way to heal my broken heart … such a fine guy … so … Happy 10th Anniversary to us. 😉

Years earlier … my intention was to become a brick and mortar shop-keeper (I was) and tile artist (I am) who taught herself how to design websites (I did) and would live happily ever after until … the universe kept showing me the door … not once,  (I’m not a quitter) not twice, (pack-unpack) but 1/2 dozen times. Thanks for your patience, Robbie.

The truth is … my intentions always show up – eventually – and I rarely turn my back on them … this time was different … the wretched (being kind) side of the human element literally forced me – with a good pummeling – to get off my butt and take a completely different path. Bravo. Mara Lee, take a bow, you rock!

What I’ve learned from this saga is simple … be very careful what you wish for … because … there’s no doubt that your intentions will show up and when they do there’s a very good chance – at the start – that they won’t look anything like you thought they would.  Insert patience of a saint here.  My suggestion after being force-fed enlightenment is  …  arm yourself with a case of Kleenex, Fiji water and plenty of snacks … that way you’ll have a better chance of riding the courage wave, until you reach the shore.  You can do it water boy;) #hidave

In memory of my sweet Budders.

Well Done

Reflecting on 2018 and found myself thinking about all of the things that I said I was gonna get done and didn’t. But …  since I don’t make resolutions the woulda, coulda, shoulda side of the whole guilt trip thing is pretty much mute.

Besides, I made thousands of great decisions, sorta kept to one list, sold a ton of stuff,  stayed fairly organized, learned something new everyday and I can still button my old jeans. Well done!

Cheers to a Healthy and Happy New Year!
