And so anyway although ...
I used to use that as a lead for Journal Entries in a writing class @ Long Beach City College - Lib Arts Campus (Hello Alan Bundy) who, in spite of his being very open minded and encouraging about giving us freedom from "writing rules," wanting his students to feel we could just write without worrying about punctuation, or criticism, absolutely hated that phrase. Sorry Alan, I still like it.
Life goes on, as up & down as ever, plans get made - plans get changed by life, might as well make them on a dry erase board or an Etch-A-Sketch.
We had an Adventure planned to Peru that would have started next week, but our little buddy Skippy, (AKC registered name: Skip the BS), our Shetland Sheep Dog, at 9 1/2 yrs old has Kidney Disease. So trip got postponed to April, and maybe cancelled completely if he's still with us then.
He no longer eats or drinks regular enough or eats his standard food to leave at the kennel, he is getting Hydrated 3 X a week at his vet, not going to do feeding tubes or anything. He loses a little weight, then has a good day here and there eats something (we keep trying anything and everything), and gains a little back, but doesn't have the energy or appetite of a healthy dog, and is slowly slipping away from us.
