Where The Hell Am I?

I'm right here; trying to retype a post that I spent the past hour composing and then lost for no apparent reason. (No, I did not push the Back button this time.)

"What have I been doing?" I hear no one asking...
I've been sitting here, doing crossword puzzles, mulling over the big picture. It's not that I'm on some back to basics kick or anything, but I haven't visited a blog nor turned on the TV in days. It actually feels quite liberating to know that I have no idea of what's going on with Laci Peterson., Jessica Lynch or Amy Fischer.
Now I think I know how Rachel Lucas felt about 6 months ago; when blogging starts to feel like a chore then it's probably in the wrong slot.

My favorite tech support guy/repair man, John Keach, came by this morning to assist me with an electrical problem I'd been having with one of my printing presses. The man's pushing 90 and recently had quintuple bypass heart surgery. He was tired when he showed up and I began to feel ashamed for having asked him to come by. But seeming to sense that he mentioned "If you can't leave the house then you might as well just leave."

When we were teenagers we dreamed of retirement. Man, we were stupid.

It's not supposed to be a chore. It's supposed to be enjoyable. I hope you still enjoy it, because I still enjoy reading the product. For what that's worth. :-)

That's worth a lot, Jen, Thanks! I'm not agonizing over anything or anything. If I never blog again it'll be just because I don't want to. But I DO want to, and taking a week off has been a refreshing exercize.
Well, waddayaknow, I'm home on a Friday night fer once! :)

Sometimes you just have to remind yourself that this is all for fun. Unless you're Jen, then it's for the overthrow of civilization.
