So … I have at least two things. The first is that I took nearly two straight weeks off from work and went on two mini-vacations and one long one. The other is that I went back to CNU for Family Weekend and saw my nephew in person for all of 30 seconds. I haven’t written about either yet because I want to include the photos I took and I haven’t gotten around to uploading them to my computer. That’s not a good excuse, but that’s where we are.
I’ve mentioned before that my job requires me to be in front of my computer a lot, and I’ve started not being in front of my computer when I go home. Yes, that has been the nature of my job since 2006, but I’m also trying to reestablish a work-life balance, so I often leave my computer alone when I get home. It’s been a little more than a year now, so I think I’m starting to figure out the proper balance and get back to writing for fun.
And I still need to finish that album voyage that I completed on Facebook.
And I just realized I still didn’t write about my New York trip and the wedding I went to. Over the past 15 years, I went from very, very good at this to very, very bad at this.
But, as I’ve been alluding to for quite some time now, my job has changed a lot recently, so I’m trying to see how this blog that people inevitably will find fits into this. I need to figure that out soon, because more than 30 days passing between posts is a bit ridiculous. And also having a four-story backlog.
I’ve also mentioned that I’m not writing this for anyone. As this is largely for myself, I feel that I really need to make these post because they are an extension of my memory. Recently, I’ve been very bad at names, so that is giving me another reason to want to get back to writing this stuff down while I remember it. I don’t know if this is temporary or worse. My memory has been a little weird ever since I got a concussion in high school. I often follow a routine in the mornings to make sure I don’t forget anything. I try to put things in the same spot every day. Last week, I either ran out of pepper or misplaced the shaker. One thing to know about me is that I don’t run out of pepper, so you have no idea how much that bothers me.
I haven’t had a checkup in about 18 months (other than blood work for life insurance) because I don’t feel like having someone tell me what I already know (I need to lose about 30 pounds). But I have the number of the PCP my new insurance picked for me sitting right next to me.
This is not where I expected this post to go.
Also, does WordPress not have spellcheck anymore? Sure, my browser has it, and I even say in my bio that I free write this, but I liked the extra layer.
