This morning I received an email from my friend, Steve.
Four posts during your respite? You just can’t help yourself, can you? I think that’s funny.
I agree, I am a bit fond of blogging.
That could be the primary motivation behind all the posts this week, but it isn’t.
There are changes brewing here. Nothing dramatic or newsworthy, at least not to anyone other than myself. I signed on with a new ad network starting in July, and it was only after I posted about my respite that Steve, he of the MBA and comments via emails, reminded me that perhaps signing off wasn’t the best idea. I realized he had a point and emailed my contact who replied, diplomatically, that my timing was not impeccible. They needed to ascertain my stats and I needed to insert code and zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz it’s all very confusing to me, but the main points made sense so I told them that, while I understood their position and the fault was clearly mine, I could in no way post more than three, maybe four, times during the whole of my vacation. I would be too busy, too relaxed, too unmotivated. There were no complaints on their end. I packed my bags, all the while imagining all the fun in my future.
So that could also be the primary motivation behind all the posts this week, but it isn’t.
The truth is, I really miss The Mister.
He really misses me.
And we’re both pretty miserable.
So he is at home, working on the weekends and doing home improvement projects around the house until it is time to go to bed.
I’m here, up late–as is my habit, but not my mother’s–puttering around my flickr folders, putting up posts that maybe I wouldn’t put up two weeks prior or hence, until it is time for me to go to bed.
The boys are having a wonderful time; my mom spoils them rotton. The weather is perfect. The scenery is magnificent. But as perfect as everything is, it just isn’t the same without The Mister here to share it with me, and there isn’t much I wouldn’t give to be back in my little red brick ranch in the Inland Empire.
And that is the primary motivation behind all the posts this week.
