I've been away from this journal for a while for a number of reasons. I'll be candid:
1. Work has become busy. The yearly schedule at work is in line with tax season (even though I don't work in anything related to accounting) so I'm usually busy from January through May. Expect tons of blogging in June and July — there is NOTHING to do.
2. My personal life has become quite busy too. I don't really have a free night except for Sundays and I'm left exhausted from doing something every single night of the week. Free Friday nights tend to be a rare commodity.
3. I feel awful that I can't keep up on anyone's blog at the moment. There are so many wonderful blogs that I'm addicted to reading and it's much too time-consuming at the moment. (I have this tendency to read the first post and then read back entries all the way to January. Before I know it, I've spent 2 hours at work wasting time.)
4. I'm a perfectionist who meticulously reads over most of my previously written posts and corrects grammar, spelling, etc.
There's probably more that I can't remember at the moment, but you get the picture. Now, on to diagnosing myself…
