I promptly replied, "I have a blog. I just never have time to update it."
And that really brings us to the crux of the matter doesn't it? I mean, I'm just so busy that I never seem to have any "me" time for things like blogging.
I'm not busy in the single parent of six working two jobs to make ends meet while going to night school to get a PhD in quantum physics kinda busy. I'm about as busy as you are. Maybe a little more or a little less but mostly about as busy as your average person.
Now don't misunderstand me. I'm grateful that I have a full schedule. I'm active in my church, I have an awsome family, a career I actually enjoy and friends I can hang out with from time to time. I'm grateful for all of these things and the time to enjoy them. If I didn't have a full schedule it would be because some of these, and other important, things were missing. That would be a Bad Thing.
When I say I'm too busy to blog I guess I mean that after all of the high-priority life things are taken care of and I find myself with an hour or two of responsibility-less time on my hands I have trouble choosing the thing to do next. Do I catch up on that book I've been putting off? (I have about a dozen in the queue.) Or maybe the latest episode of whatever that TiVo has been holding for a couple of months now? Then there's that DVD still in the shrink-wrap. Or maybe
My friend who recommended that I get a blog knows me well. I have many opinions, insights and so forth that I would like to share. Some are truly useful while others are probably useless.
So, here is my first entry of '07. With luck it will be the first of many. Let's just hope I don't get distracted by... Oh! Shiny thing. Gotta go!
