Maine, Maine. go away

This is near where I'll be staying in Maine. I think it's one lake over. Boy do I need a vacation. And I'm getting one. Whew.

In the past 6 months, among other things, I left my husband, worked on and got a separation agreement, bought a house by myself, moved into it and am now living alone, my uncle died, my sister leaned on me for support for her relationship problems, I was dropped suddenly from a work project due to a complete shift in direction, got offered and took another different half time job, and my cat died.

I did not lapse into a depression, due in part to continued exercise and eating right, regular physical training, the support of friends and family, and some good luck. September will start my new life. See you then!

Maine is extraordinary. I've never had a bad time there.

As James Hetfield sometimes says,
no remorse, no regrets.

The Swing
(1)

How do you like to go up in a swing,

Up in the air so blue?

Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing

Ever a child can do.

(2)

Up in the air and over the wall,

Till I can see so wide,
River and trees and cattle and all

Over the countryside

(3)

Till I look down on the garden green

Down on the roof so brown
Up in the air I go flying again

Up in the air and down!

Hope you're having a swell time. I like Heather's suggestion that you dye your hair pink. I did that once, about a year ago. People were... surprised.

Thanks all! I did, and had great weather until the ride back...

As for pink hair, well, my nephew did it for me. Just got a picture in email he dyed it pink for his mom's breast cancer walk (no, she doesn't have it, just does the walk).
