Inside the Eiffel Tower

For those of you who are curious about the header photo, yes, in fact, I was in Paris France inside of the west leg of the Eiffel tower. Why was I in there?  I decided to walk down instead of taking the lift.  What a gorgeous view, heh?

This July 1st, I am doing a “picture a day” challenge with my cousin Eric who lives in Missouri. All year I have enjoyed his photos and admired his talent.  He made it look so fun, that he sucked me into the vortex of his 365 days of Photos. Not that I’m going to back out, but with the stay-at-home orders going on this project will be exceptionally challenging.

Anyway, my point is, you will see these photos in the header images on this blog from time to time. Do not expect any spectacular European shots and you probably will not be disappointed.

Adiós, mis amigos. Por favor, no yo odies!

Today (yes, I know it’s Friday the 13th, but don’t worry because those are good days for me), hubby and I will get on a Delta Airlines “red-eye” flight and get our 2nd honeymoon underway in Mexico.

This week I have battled anxiety. The level of intensity is more than the usual pre-travel jitters I always get. Way more. In fact, the last two days I spent trying to relax and meditate, but to no avail. Today I feel sick to my stomach.

I know these feelings are a combination of a decrease in medication, hormone issues and having to drive at night. If I learned anything from therapy, it was how to analyze myself. My head knows what’s going on. Why doesn’t it explain it to my stomach?

Sigh. I will need a vacation by the time we get there.

Whining But complaining about my state of mind is not why we are here – but thank you for listening 😉

Instead of a dreary week of re-reading my archives, I have a few guest posts scheduled for your reading enjoyment. Published while I lay on the pristine white sand, or float in the warm surf off the Mexican coast.

See how I take care of y’all?  Maybe I’ll even send you a postcard  🙂

BTW – Translation of Title: Farewell my Friends. Please don’t hate me.
