Don’t want to go into any details, suffice it to say that a thing which had been sufficiently worrying took a dramatic turn for the worse this weekend. I’ve been stretched a little too thin for quite some time now, and it’s time for me to shed some workload and re-prioritize my efforts. This has been fun, but faced with what I’m up against it’s far too time-consuming and a far too guilty pleasure.
I’ve got a lot going on in life, right now: Husband, father, naval officer, grad school student and blogger. I’m finding out that I can’t be all of these, at least not to the level that they deserve. I need to take a break at the very least. Maybe even pull the plug. I’m taking a week to try to bandage up the things that need bandaging, and think everything over. Come back next Monday, if it suits you, and I should have come to a better understanding of where things are, at least in my own mind.
Worse comes to worst, I’ll finish the “Rhythms” series off – that was always going to be a natural (if optional) off-ramp anyway. After that, the tale was done.
I’ve put some of you through this before. Sorry to do it again. But this is really important to me.
Update: Oh. Happy Thanksgiving, by the way.
