Elation and Devastation

I was feeling guilty that I had only posted a few blogs in the past two months  (Shame on me!) until I took some time to start catching up on friend and family blogs that I read.  Turns out, I'm not the only one who lacks the writers spirit right now.  I ticked off the list:  "Whew, he hasn't written in a while, she hasn't written in a while, ok we're doing good.  I must not be the only busy person on the web right now."

Just as I'm starting to feel absolved of my guilt, remorse starts to build as I move further down the list.  Some of my friends are blogging like crazy.  My wife's cousin Allison for example, she still blogs several times a week - and I know she's busy, she has three little girls for crying out loud!  About half my list of friends, it turns out, are cranking out stories at a rate the infamous Jayson Blair would be envious of.

So to you, the dedicated bloggers, I offer my congratulations.  Someday I hope to achieve the lofty heights your example has given me.   Thanks also for giving me something to read over lunch!

Glad to provide some lunchtime entertainment! Blogging is my release. Besides, I'm home all day (okay, with three kids, I'm never home all day, but I don't work outside the house!)
