- Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
The dark clouds are slowly lifting off. The melancholy dissipating. All I needed was action. Instead of getting angry, I walked the talk. I did something about what I thought was the root of my unhappiness. I helped with the Southeast Asian relief efforts the only way I can, with my pocketbook. I really want to go there and physically help but I have a family. My family needed me where I am. I also wrote a letter to our local paper's editor about my feelings regarding the headline news that I ranted about on my last entry. Last but not the least, I rewrote my five year plan to coincide with our youngest child's high school graduation.
I told my husband long time ago that once our children are out of the home, I would like us to join the Peace Corps. Right now that dream may be realized in about four years. Our son will be in college by 2009. Though my husband has reservations about going overseas and living without the creature comforts he is accostumed to, he said he will go if that is really what I want. He is a gypsy like I am and I know he will love it when we get there. One thing that my husband and I always agree about is traveling. Being a retired sailor, he had seen the world and at his present job, he is a road warrior and travels all over the country. His company is suppose to send him to Europe next month. I am always ready to go somewhere. I had been in a lot of countries in Asia and a lot of states in North America, including Hawaii. My dream is to eventually visit at least one country from all the continents. Two out of the way, and five more to go!
