Back from Vacation

A week in the sun and sand was just what I needed.  It also meant time to race through some fun, mindless “beach reads.” At the top of my list was Janet Evanovich’s latest – Lean, Mean Thirteen, followed by Jeffrey Deaver’s The Sleeping Doll.  While Stephanie Plum was predictable, I still found some laugh out loud moments.  Jeffrey Deaver’s book was interesting (I love reading about the Monterey area) but also pretty violent.  I had just finished reading Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by  Lisa See, so Deaver’s story was a real taste of modern-day gore and guts.

I was surprised to discover my lack of desire to play games on my laptop while in Florida.  My husband and I made our daily trip to Panera’s for breakfast and e-mail, but then I packed it away and turned to reading or solving our family jigsaw puzzle, spread out on the table.  Perhaps I’m not the computer addict I imagine myself to be – thank heavens!

Now I’m back at work and preparing myself to take the Dreamweaver training class at New Horizons next week.  There is a mixture of eagerness to learn a new version of this software along with a sense of fear that I won’t be as fast to catch on as I used to.  Last year, I probably wouldn’t have given a new challenge a second thought.  Now, I’m less certain that my brainpower is running at full strength.  Perhaps self-doubt is the first step in old age.  I don’t know.  Wish me luck!
