My holiday hiatus from blogging is over. I was going to start up a few days ago. In fact, I was all primed for the new year, resolutions, stout heart, all that bullshit. Then I came down with a stomach virus right after New Year’s Day.
I’ll spare the messy details other than to say my stomach is still a bit tight and rebellious. I was awake for about three hours in the middle of last night, wired but tired, incapable of doing anything but going back to sleep. I hate it when that happens but as usual I’ll survive. At least I don’t have an office to stagger into on Monday morning.
Resolutions? Oh I have tons of plans. Book stuff, short story stuff, projects inside the house, projects outside the house, projects to get the body fat off my body, etc. I’ve got more resolve for sticking to these than I used to in my younger days, maybe because I’m a stubborn old man now or maybe because I have gotten better at dealing with the distractions that always disrupt my good intentions. ADHD is a bitch but the key is to make sure it doesn’t make you its bitch. And so we move forward, with baby steps.
