Dangerous Type

Two more weeks or so of fingers to keyboard and I can potentially take a blog break. Potentially.

It would be hard not to do this daily, but lately, I'm thinking - wow, it would be nice to take a few days off. I think it's mostly a 'how busy my life seems to be these days' fatigue I'm just feeling right now. It's not you. It's me.

Normally I don't talk work here and I really won't. Maybe the high-level view. I am not one who needs a pat on the back for what I do. Odd for a Leo, but I rather do a good job and be left alone. Unfortunately, it seems I do a good job and all I get it, 'what else can you do for us'. It's a bit disheartening. I'm in the black - by quite a bit, when I was told I wouldn't even break even.

Where's the 'thanks', I tell ya.

So that has just been a bit draining for me. More than I normally care to admit - let alone here.

Hell, even yesterday I didn't get out of bed until 5:30a. Yes, I skipped the gym. Shock! I know.

I lay there at 4:00a and told myself I just couldn't do it. I wanted to stay in bed, so I did. I never really fell back asleep, of course. I spent so much energy on the guilt of not going and trying to justify going after work or I could get there if I left NOW.

Neither happened. I knew I had a busy and late day, so I was going to miss yoga as it was - I had no idea how I'd get in my cardio and weight routine. So I got in none of it. And I'm not really beating myself up over it. It could be said I'm an all or nothing kind of guy - so I was nothing.

It's why you've gotten me ALL year.

I know some of you have asked why I am doing this. It was not my intent to do it. I just happened to be blogging a lot and in April or so I found out I was five months in without a break. Then I thought I'd take it to 'x' date and at some point I figured I just had to go the entire 365.

December 5th. That's the date. Or is it?

Go, Blobby! Go!!

Two Macs? You are twice as geeky as I thought you were.

I've enjoyed being the beneficiary of your efforts. But yeah, if you need a break after all this, by all means take one. I sure couldn't do a post a day.

Jonny said... could transfer those pesky files via Bluetooth doncha know! Wait...don't you guys have a server?

You're almost 10% through your first full decade of nonstop blogging. Double digits - don't stop now!

That's weird, when I went to your blog I got a 404 not found message. I could only access the post, not the homepage. Also, pretend you are your own boss. That way you only have yourself to pat on the back.

I'm way more than 2x geeky than people think. But the pic you see was months old from my wireless (jon!) migration from old to new Mac.

David - bite your tongue. I know I can't do daily for that long.
