Yesterday morning, I spent a couple of hours drafting a couple of ideas for a post to run today. They weren’t quite complete posts, though, because they never are. Even when I really, really work at pre-writing a post, when I sit down on Monday morning to get it done here on the blog, it’s never as simple as a straight cut-and-paste job, or just retyping in the blog box what’s in the Word box. No, the Word document tends to be a guide, and it takes a surprising amount of brain power to go from even a pretty good draft to a finished blog post. Well, here’s where my brain power is at these days:
It’s been like this for a while now: posting is never easy for me, but it’s become increasingly difficult and that means it’s time for a break. I was kind of thinking the entire month of April, but, well, last week was easy. And then you need a post saying it’s break time, right? So, here’s the official “I’m on break” post. I’ll still be around, will still be visiting the blogs I usually visit, I just won’t be posting here.*
I should also point out, it’s not just the blog. For the last couple of weeks, I’ve been kind of dragging, my energy levels pretty much bottomed out. I suspect at least some of it is weather related: after having 60 degree weather in the middle of February, March has been shit, quite frankly, and April has not been much better, with limited sunshine and persistent, irritating snow. It’s ten degrees outside right now. Ten! On April 9th!
At any rate, it seems like a good time to take a break, and recharge the batteries. The nice thing is, I’ve got a mini-vacation coming up at the beginning of May, one that is much needed, because April starts the crazy-busy season at work. I’ll be back in mid-May, and I’ll see you around the blogs in the interim. Enjoy my break!
*Which of course means in a week’s time or so I’ll have a burning, gotta post it now moment
