Hello World, I’m Back

OK, I have been slack with my blog the last few months. This was by choice rather than pure laziness. Sometimes you just need to walk away for awhile. After a hard year I decided to give myself a break.

I didn’t blog, answer newsgroup or forum posts, attend any user groups or most of the other stuff I usually do. I kept a lazy eye on a few email lists I am a member of but by and large most of the posts in them are unread. I didn’t read any blogs or computer related stuff either. I even turned my mobile phone off most of the time.  

Sometimes our connected world is just plain tiring, not to mention boring!

You know, when I was 20, I didn’t have a phone, a computer, a PDA. I certainly didn’t feel underprivileged. I never felt pressed for time. I did things until they were finished and then thought about what to do next. Yes, that involved a lot of drinking and partying 😉 Work was something to do to make a buck but not to be taken seriously. 

Anyway, I feel like I have the energy to get back into now and more pertinently, the desire. I wonder if that will last after the birth of our 2nd child in around a month’s time? aaaahhh the phones ringing…later.
