You know those really big gaps that appear in the chronology here? There’s a reason for those… life happened. Or, more likely, the job that has taken the place of my life for a while happened… and continued to do so.
It’s one thing to be busy, and to work in a fast-paced environment [both of which I tend to enjoy.] It’s another to realize at 1:30 in the morning when you’re still sitting at the computer from early in the evening the nite before that perhaps what you’re doing doesn’t qualify as either working to live or living to work, ’cause frankly there isn’t a whole lot of living going on at all. So, after apologizing to both the spouse and the dog, you make a resolution to really make a significant change.
And then you change nothing at all. Or, that’s how it’s usually worked.
This time I did something different. Boy, did I.
