Well, it’s probably obvious from the absence of posts that this has not been a good period of time for me. In fact, it’s the longest break I’ve taken since I started this thing – before this, I don’t believe I’ve ever taken a break much longer than two months.
I got myself to a fairly good place early on in the year, all things considered, but in the end real life issues were just too much. I tried to hold on for a while, but eventually I felt like I needed to let go, at least for a time, just to get by.
Honest assessment? I’m not really getting by. But somehow, I’m still here.
It’s New Year’s Eve, and I’m sitting here with a sore throat from common cold, just entering data so I can finally get rid of receipts and documents from five years back. And you know what? My mind is clearer than it has been for months, so here I am. Not that that’s saying much.
I feel like I’m being even more long-winded with my wording than usual. It’s always been difficult for me to gauge my own tone in these pieces, though… Oh well, in any case, small steps. I’ll cut this short – I needed to sleep anyway. Sorry I’m not going to provide anything of real substance this time (I’m sure it’s an unexpected crushing disappointment to all of my dear readers – all three of you), but hopefully I won’t drop out again for a little while.
Happy New Year!
