As some of you are aware, Monday was my birthday and I planned to take the day off and enjoy my family. My brother and his wife were in town for their vacation, and he decided that he’d like to help me tackle a project that my wife and I wanted to do for over 3 years– put up a fence in our small back yard to help my wife watch our kids when they go outside.
So, instead of spending some time writing posts over the weekend, I found myself working on posts– holes for them, panels and gates to attach to them, and driving around to get them. Let’s just say that I should have been blogging the whole adventure, and I won’t bore you with the details.
What this does mean in terms of my online presence (and I thank you for your kind words and encouragement) is that nothing got written by me for any of my blogs since last Friday. It’s been quite some time since I built up a reserve of posts, and this certainly didn’t help matters.
So, until I can get back to a writing schedule, I’m implementing “Short Bursts” on this site. Simply put, I’m still reading a lot of things that you might find interesting, and so instead of writing a long post, I’ll write a short post about something that I think is worth thinking or talking about (maybe I’ll get rid of some things that have been on my plate for a long time in the process!)
As I get the opportunity, I’ll go back to doing longer posts, but let’s see what happens with the shorter ones, shall we?
