This is the longest break in posting I think I’ve ever had in the four years I’ve maintained this blog.
It’s been a hair more than two months since my last post and it isn’t for a lack of anything to say.
I’ve had some things I could have written about: my continued work and fixes on my house which I’m learning to do as I go along… learned mostly because of the awesome people on YouTube who post how-to vids, the feeling of loss after having sold my little 16-acre piece of land that I paid on for nearly 10 years, what it was like having my ex-wife’s 16 year old daughter come to the house unexpectedly (seeing my stepdaughter was wonderful by the way), the hard transition to only one car in a city that is designed in such a way that citizens really need a car. Or like how last week, my continued Wednesday date night with my daughter has now crossed a threshold and I have only 51 of these left until she turns 18 and is no longer obligated to spend them with me.
Those are some of the biggies.
There were a bunch of little things that I could have written or shown you pictures of that involve just random, mundane, every day things.
But I haven’t.
I’ve been tired.
Seems like everyone needs a piece of me and it’s sapping my energy to near zero by the end of the day. My physical, mental, spiritual energy seems to be running on fumes and it sucks.
The other thing though is I havent’ really been inspired to write about what’s been happening with me. I wonder if blogging, not just for me, but for the blogosphere as a whole is waning. Maybe it’s simply taking on a new shape. Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter and a few other sites have different way of blogging and I imagine have pulled some away from Blogger, WP and Typepad.
I don’t know.
I’m here though. Not dead. Still alive and kicking.
