The age-old excuse for 'most everything. The fact that it may be true does not lessen the fact that it is only an excuse. It just means that I chose to do other things besides posting to my blog.
Busy doing what? Well, I can't even use golf as an excuse since the weather here for the past week through this morning has been cold and rainy and nasty. No, I've been doing other things.
Work actually had me going in for a couple of 10-11 hour days last week. Then yesterday I felt kind of sickly all day: no appetite, achy, and absolutely no energy or desire to do anything except sit/lie around. So that's what I did.
Today Carol and I assembled a new desk we bought cheap ($103 at Office Depot) to replace the tiny drafting table that she's been using as a computer desk. Here's a picture of it, taken with my new little Logitech web cam that my daughter Christina gave me for Christmas:
Yeah, it's pretty low-res, but it works! The desk is not bad for the money. But it took much of the day to assemble.
OH! Plus we've been watching the Chicago Bears dominate the New Orleans Saints. As I saw all the snow swirling down in Soldiers Field I thought about my friend Viki sitting out there with her kids and husband freezing their tails off.
Hope you enjoyed the game, Viki, and got home safely despite the celebrating crowd!
Well, those are my excuses/reasons for no blog posts for a few days. I wish I could claim I was busy working on my novel. And I guess I could claim it, but it'd be a lie.
I'll try to do better this week.
