The First Post Is The Hardest

Hi!  Allow me to introduce myself.  I'm Elizabeth Horne.

That's for everyone but readers of my blog.  All three of you.  You know who you are.

Oh, the guilt, the guilt, for not posting since October.  Or really from posting anything of my travels, etc in all of 2013.  Let's just say it was a busy year.

And I am no longer doing the guilt thing on myself.  Yes, folks, I cut myself some slack.  I think everyone should.

Wait that word...should.  I am stealing a line from Jude Law and saying that "should" is my least favorite word in the English language.  I am working to eliminate it from my vocabulary.  Uses like "you SHOULD clean out the fridge."  or "you SHOULD be a member of this committee."

What was Yoda's phrase?  "Do or do not; there is no try."

Which also entails fully incorporating the word "No" into my vocab as well.

It will be a work in progress, for sure.

Well, 2013 was jam-packed with events in my life.  And I will write about these as much as I can.  But for now, I'm starting off 2014...

-Mostly in Louisiana, with trips back to Georgia.  I still own the original Maison Cou Rouge (but PLEASE talk to me if you are at all interested in owning a lovely 4800 square foot  historic home in the middle of nowhere).

-Acting as my mother's major domo for her house in Shreveport, and as the family concierge.

-Working and designing for Hanging By A Thread, the premier needlepoint shop in the ArkLaTex.

-Still a mother to two amazing children...

....a son who is working on his PhD in Astrophysics at UCLA in California (who happens to be married to the Nicest-Girl-I-Didn't-Give-Birth-To™)

... a daughter who is in her second year at Georgia Tech in Atlanta studying biomechanical engineering nuclear & radiological engineering, mechanical engineering, computer science.

I have a whole new cast of characters in my life, but some of them are quiet shy and will make appearances only when I've been authorized.  Yes, they are more illusive than brother Ed (aka Larry).

So, well, in a phrase....I'm BACK!

(and leaving for Tahiti in a week...)

So HANG ON!!!!

ps...I've missed writing.....I've missed YOU!

I like the saying, "Don't should on yourself." And I'm trying to live by it. Sounds like I'm not the only one!
