Some of you may have noticed I’ve been less omnipresent on your blogs, and quite quiet here. I thought I’d just give you a little insight into what’s up.
(WARNING! Small children, pregnant women, and people with weak constitutions should NOT read this post without supervision! ALL OTHERS are STRONGLY cautioned!)
From time to time, my “situation” in life starts to overwhelm me. So much to do around the house, so many things to fix, so many snowfalls to shovel from home and church, and on and on. And no money to do any of it – car repairs postponed, prescriptions pushed off, sore muscles overstrained. It all gets to be a bit much – and I just need to step back, and find some way to divert myself.
Usually the blog world is enough – more so, with having started my own. But occasionally, even that’s not enough. I can’t afford a physical vacation, so I have to settle for a mental one. Read up on all the radial aircraft engines built during World War 1. Re-acquaint myself with one of the games of my teens and 20s, be it building a better armed car or space going battleship. Weird, yeah – but that’s me.
However, in taking these little “holidays”, I need to disconnect from all you out there. Not willingly, but out of necessity. And so, you may find yourselves deprived of my feeble attempts at wit and my silly little stories. Trust me – it’s nothing personal. It’s the age-old “it’s not you, it’s me” speech, except it really IS me.
So, I may be quiet in the upcoming days. If you go a few days without hearing from me, don’t worry, I’m still following you, and will respond. If I get to some of you and not others, I’m not playing favourites, I’m just hitting those posts for which I feel some inspiration. And in all cases, I will DEFINITELY be back – I love y’all WAY too much to stay away long.
Take care, all, and in the words of that great ego … er … General, MacArthur, “I shall return”. Until then, you might want to keep your head down – stray shots are a REAL pain….
