I have just gotten home from one of the Power Squadron classes that I'm taking. I have to say that I'll be glad when I won't be taking classes in the evening. These two classes are enjoyable, but I will be glad when I can get back to going to more meetings and not be on the road so late at night.
I feel as if I have drifted a bit apart from my meetings. I miss my home group. I also have to finish up a service commitment with the Tuesday night group that meets about 45 minutes from me before I can go back to the new Tuesday night group that is much closer.
I seem to stay busy every day with something. In fact, I am actually busy with many things. Tomorrow C. and I are going out in the john boat to fish. It promises to be another beautiful day. And after fishing, I will head over to make the 7 PM meeting.
I seem to be going through a period in which I am feeling a bit burned out. I'm sure that this will pass. But at the moment, I seem to not have much to write about. I am feeling that much of what I wanted to say has been written already. Maybe this is my version of writer's slump.
I also don't seem to have as much time to catch up on what you are writing and that bothers me. I think that the give and take with this blog thing is what keeps it going. I read what you write, make a comment, and then you read what I write and make a comment. It's not a given but just seems like a good way to stay connected. I am feeling less and less inclined to be connected lately. This will likely pass and energy will be regained.
Maybe it's time for me to put First Things First and not try to keep up. I think that if I spend too much time reading and writing, I won't be getting other things that seem necessary completed. Hence, the burnout. So if I'm not around here every day or commenting to you as frequently as I used to, it isn't that I don't care but that I'm getting sidetracked by life. Maybe that isn't a bad thing.
