up for air

There is absolutely no excuse for my lack of blogging over the past month, but that won't stop me from trying.

Excuse number one: Work. I just finished up a major assignment for the magazine work that I do. With the exception of one or two days, I have been writing every single day for a month. I had very few words left at the end of the day. Certainly none that made any sense. 

Excuse number two: Renovations. With the woodpeckers and the Northern Flickers declaring victory in the decades-long battle for our cedar siding, we finally threw up our hands, talked to our banker, and called our contractor. Technically this should not have prevented me from blogging, of course, but I was distracted.

I am looking forward to reading all the wordy gems that you have been writing recently. And to adding a few words of my own. Now that I have some words left at the end of the day.

Those are pretty good excuses. Now blog at will.

Now I just need to work on the will part, Eugene!

I just accidentally deleted your comment, John Mutford. (Note to self: first you drink the coffee, then you do the things)

But you said: "You've been missed! But, as someone's who's had to share excuses of his own for the odd blog lapse here or there, you're forgiven."

You have always had great excuses, John - master's degrees, trips to Japan, cool stuff. I can only aspire to your level of excuse-making.

I agree with Eugene, all valid excuses...uh...reasons :)

Now that their validity has been established, I may be tempted to keep pulling out those excuses, Karen.
