I’m sure that some of you may have noticed that I haven’t hit the ‘Like’ button on many posts recently. It’s not because I haven’t liked anything that I’ve read from all of you wonderful writers out there. It’s because I haven’t been reading much lately. Well, not much blog reading anyways. Of course, I really haven’t been writing much in the past month either, but I’ve been getting better at that.
Basically, there were a couple of reasons for this decline in blogging activity. As far as my writing goes, I did a lot of it at work. A couple of people quit or got fired, so they pulled from my department to fill in the gap. So now there’s only me and my lead trying to do the work of 4 people by ourselves. That doesn’t leave me much, if any, time to write. Supposedly, they’re going to start having others do some of our workload soon, but I’m not holding my breath.
As far as my reading goes, any free time I have had to get on WordPress has been used for doing my writing, since I now can’t do it at work. I have read a post here and there, but, for the most part, my time on the blogs has been spent writing.
Plus, I haven’t had much free time at home in the past month either. It was around a month ago that Mrs. Revis quit her job in preparation for what started last week: she started back in school. She took the time off in order to spend more time with me and Baby E before she started. I, of course, was all for spending as much time with my girls as I could before her classes began. This, of course, meant that I didn’t have as much time to get online. While I’d like to get on here more, I’m not going to trade my family time to get it.
Now that Mrs. Revis has started her classes, I’ve found that I will have at least a little bit more free time to hop on here. There are a few days that she has early classes. That means that I’ll have to get up early too, in case Baby E wakes up. That means I’ll have some time to catch up on some of my blog reading, provided the princess will allow it, before I have to go to work.
I’m going to try to get to all of the posts I’ve missed over the past month. If I don’t get to yours, it’s all because of Obamacare. (Why not? It’s getting blamed for everything else.)
