MIA--Missing Inaction

I 'm a Believer!!

OK, here we are. You may think I've been missing as a result of inaction lately, but I've been here. Time has become a priority in my life. Not enough time in a day has been the problem since I came to California. Sorry, but when you meet the man of your dreams, you no longer have as much time to sit on the internet.

Actually, I have been cruising the undercurrents of HubPages, reading, learning. I'm like great white shark, always looking for a rare new treat. Reading, barely commenting, but reading often. (You all know commenting holds a great challenge for me.) But I keep up, I read, I love all the old...new...and current writers on HubPages!

My computer blew it's power source, and while getting on my own was hard enough...getting on another's is harder. Tonight my children go to their "grandparents" for a sleep-over and some pool time tomorrow. Tonight it's just me and my love in the house...plus a few pets. But, some good alone time will begin as soon as he gets back from dropping them off.

I've come to realize a few things in my life, since I've lived here in California.

1. The weather in Southern California really, really is "all that".

I always wanted to live someplace that stayed 60-80 degrees Fahrenheit and I think I have found it. That is as long as you live where you get the ocean breezes!

2. Time is never enough.

I spent mucho time on the internet when it was myself and the kids. Now. I find much less time to spend here. I do not resent this fact as I am doing what pleases me more! Connecting with the one I love and my children. So bear with me...someday we may be connected enough that we no longer need to ever speak to each other. :D

3.  Love is the bomb.

I never thought I could be in "love".  I thought I was much too practical for that.   It was something weaker people did, not me.  Well,  I have discovered that I may well be the weakest person I know.  Love is an unexpected pleasure.  I recommend it for all people!

4. Call

For everyone who knows what call means to an OR nurse...it goes without saying.  For everyone else, call is a time that I may be called to work at any time...day or night.  If there is an emergency, they will call me and tell me to come to work.  An emergency in my world includes anything that needs to be fixed now.  Be it 7 pm or 2 am, I'm your girl!

5.  I love HubPages

I miss you all, but I hope you understand about time.  My priorities lie with the people I live with.  There are times (often) that I would rather be writing, but others keep my interest.  I want you all to know that it doesn't mean I don't care, it's just that I'm busy.  I will continue to ebb and flow...I just wanted everyone to know that I Love You and I am here.

I have a few things in the works, hopefully my computer will be working soon and I will write them...Until then, I love you and give you my best intentions!

Remarkable hub. I am kind of new to HP, but have read your words, alot. Very happy you have discovered your beautiful weakness, in love. Nothing better exist. Cali is the bomb and I would live no where else! So, welcome to the west coast. Thank you for sharing your new life and time restraints.

~Always choose love~

Kari: It takes courage to fall in love, we become totally open to ourselves and to our significant other. I discovered aspects of myself I didn't know I had, which is I am very playful, which I am with my s/o, but not in past relationships. So happy you found love! Its a whole different world and priorities do change. Glad you are still around, and we are connected in Facebook!
