Just a short note to my friends who still ask, “What happened to you? Where’s your blog?”
No, it didn’t disappear, I just got busy doing other things. Yet I am resolved to start again, and should begin within the week.
The real issue for my hibernation is, I had no idea how busy I would be when retired. Think of the word, ‘ retire.’ Does it mean get to work? No, quite the opposite. I’m always busy. What with technology, I even have post it notes on my computer screen admonishing me to do this, do that, get busy, go to a meeting, go to the doctors (the latter seems to be high on the list of retirees). I can never complete what I have to do in a day and then it slides over to the next day which is already too full so some things just don’t get done.
If you were a workaholic in your previous existence, chances are you will continue to treat aspects of your life the same way. Conversely, if you were a couch potato before, you might well become twice baked before you know it.
I was the former and the blog was my new job. It started to “un-fun” me towards the end of last year. My new plan is to start out with a blog appearing every 2 weeks instead of weekly. If something strikes my fancy — well you may see me more frequently. But the workaholic time schedule is in the past. In a previous post, “Life is what you make it,” I noted “it’s not the company schedule, it’s my schedule.” So, I’m taking my own advice and being selfish with my time.
“Let the games begin!”
