Over this last week I took a little mini vacation from blogging.
I try to take a week here and there where I don’t have to write, but instead just goof off, do lots of research online, make plans, and come up with action plans for goals we hope to accomplish for the month.
A mini vacation for me isn’t about leaving my home. It’s simply about stepping back from my regular responsibilities for a little while, and do the bare minimum. 😉
Besides, I’ve never liked get away vacations. It’s never made sense to me to save hard earned money all year to blow in a location that takes more work getting to, more aggravation than I’d care to put up with, all so we can look like we’re having fun? No thanks. My ideal vacation is to hang out at home, enjoy my family, and have others pick up the slack for a while. I don’t have anything going on in my life that would make me want to wish for something different. I don’t need to run off to an island, go on a cruise, and I don’t need to re-live old memories from when I was a child by going back to old vacationing spots.
I would love for us to take Simone to Disney World some day, and I think she would really enjoy it, but I wouldn’t want to make a yearly trip, spending thousands of dollars so she can get excited and go on rides. But hey, that’s just how I am. Not everyone is like me.
Anyway, this past week has been fun. I’ll let everyone know what I’ve been up to and what we’ve been planning on February 24th. Why? Because even though I’ve ended my vacation today, I’m still enjoying the research high I’ve been on, and I’m extending my mini vacation until Sunday.
UPDATE: I emailed Hotfrog to register a complaint and it looks like they removed the information. Thank you Hotfrog for promptly removing the listing…I hope it doesn’t show up again!
WHAT…THE HELL???…IS THIS? Can someone please explain why we/High Desert Chronicles is listed with these phone numbers and states that we live in Sierra, NM? Yet there is a PO box in ABQ? All of this is totally false! We live in Los Lunas, so for any of our readers, please discard any information Hotfrog may have about us. It is WRONG! I hate that shit. I can’t tell you how often stuff like this happens to us. Do I have something written on my forehead that says “Please do say anything of a false nature about me/us.” Holy crap! I think its my age that is putting me at this cross roads in my life. If this would have happened about nine or ten years ago, I would have smiled politely, and allowed the deception to take place because “I know the real truth and I don’t have to prove anything.” I guess I’ve changed…BIG TIME! LOL Lets just say there were a LOT of untruths said about me about ten years ago, and I let them slide. I knew the truth, the truth was on my side right? WRONG! I will never do that again. I will NEVER allow ANYONE to soil my good name for the sake of their self preservation! That’s bullshit. I thought I was taking the high road back then, since the things that was being said was so outrageous it looked like it was for real. LOL I believe it was Adolf Hitler that said that if you are going to lie about something, lie BIG so that it would be believed. How true that is. Some big ass lies where told about me…NEVER AGAIN! Hot Frog should be ashamed of themselves. As a matter of fact, anyone who prints false or misleading information about another party should suffer with a case of scorching himpies! LOL AHAHAH!
It also says there is an EMAIL address…don’t send anything through hotfrog! I don’t even know that email address. Those definitely aren’t our phone numbers either.
Here is the link to what I’m talking about on hotfrog:
About The High Desert Chronicles
- We actually like appliances and certain modern conveniences
- Plus, the first time we went through the house we had Simone with us, which made it difficult to concentrate
- The cavernous hole that seemed never ending in our lives is filling up fast
