Hello and welcome! Come on in and I’ll give you a nice mug of very strong French Roast. I also have assorted teas, cocoa and other beverages – no soda (except plain seltzer), though, because it’s evil ;) From the picture you can guess that once again I’m down on Cape Cod.
It’s been a busy week. In fact, one of my few new posts stated the fact that because I’m so busy I’m doing another blogging slow down. Now I do have time to put up posts – I write fast so it only takes ten minutes – but I feel it’s un-fair to post and not read any other posts.
Besides the blogging slow down post, I put up a picture of the 23 year old Trent for Throw Back Thursday. Yes, I carried a keyboard with me everywhere! I also put up another new short story, a look at why Facebook is so important ;)
So, why am I so busy? Well, for one thing, it’s finally Spring here in New England! The weather is gorgeous. Not only do I need to get out and enjoy it, I also have to do a ton of work around the house. Or perhaps I should say “houses” because I have been doing stuff on both the house in New Hampshire and the cottage on Cape Cod.
There is also my day job. I did something very strange – I actually told my boss I wanted more work. And the request got pushed up the chain. So not only is my boss giving me more, but I’m taking on some projects from other groups. I’m not supposed to blog at work, but, you know, if I’m not as busy as I should be… Well, now I am as busy as I should be (or soon will be) so I won’t be looking at any blogs during working hours. None.
And I’m just enjoying life. I’ve said this before, and I mean no disrespect to anyone out there, I’m not trying to be judgmental, but to me life is what happens when I step away from the computer. I don’t watch TV but I still don’t have the time to do all I want to do. I want 36 hour days, 9 day weeks with the 40 (actually 45) hour work week, then I might be able to do one percent of what I want to do. Maybe if I stayed active all 36 hours of those extended days I could push it to two percent.
On that note, I’ll be heading out to do stuff now! I hope you all had a great week and that next week is even better!
