I am still having such a hard time dealing with the election. Not to where it’s consuming me, but I’m really having to work hard on trying to focus and prioritize.
I have tons of things I want to do, but what is the most important right now? What’s going to be of the most benefit to me and my family? How should I spend my time? (When I have enough energy to do anything beside veg out.) Is hitting the gym the answer? Maybe. Maybe it would help me have more energy to do the other things I want to do. But then again, should I be focusing on some short-range goals I have?
Anyway… sometimes I have another wrinkle added in to the equation. Loneliness. I know you aren’t necessarily lonely when you are alone, and you a don’t have to be alone to be lonely. Anyway, I’ve hit a couple of bouts of loneliness lately. It’s not fun, but so far it seems to only hit on weekends in Cali, but not every time I’m here. I’m really looking forward to being back at home for a few months later this year.
I decided to mention this, not as a lame excuse, but to explain that I’m still trying to decide the future of my blog. Does it fit into my priorities? One of the reasons I want to write this is for my family – sort of a diary and way to keep them informed on how things are going with me, but also as a way to help them maybe stay on top of some interesting things going on in the world.
The problem has been that most of the news has been so bad, I don’t feel like sharing it, or spending the time thinking about it long enough to blog about it.
Soon you’ll hopefully know how things work out. Will I bail on the blog for lack of desire or because it gets too low on my priority list. If there isn’t any family interest maybe it will sink on the priority list, or maybe an increase in activity will help create family interest – who knows? Time will tell.
