I've decided to take advantage of the time I have spent away from this site for a bit longer. I am going to take a short break from blogging for the rest of the year. I may still post something for the holidays or if something comes along that I feel the need to say or post then I will, but until 2015 there will be no regular updates. I've been doing this very regularly for over 5 years now and I want to get away from that feeling that I have to post something - sometimes anything - unless the urge hits me.
I may not have actual OCD - most people who say they do really do not have the obsessiveness of the real disorder - but I definitely do have OCD tendencies and I always have. In fact, I used to be much more obsessive-compulsive than I am now. This break is to help me make some changes in my day to day life. I want to stop needing to check a list of websites daily, needing to post at least 7 times a month (I always have), needing to keep current on all my (soon to be fewer) favorite podcasts, and spend more time with my wife, read more books that I'm interested in and even work on more household chores and projects (but don't tell my wife I said that!). This is a lofty goal for myself, I know, but I should think about it kind of like a head start on a New Year's resolution.
So I may not be posting much in the near future, but I will be around the 'net and even stop back here occasionally. When I return I hope to be less anxious about everything and a little bit more in control.
Try not to mess the place up too much while I'm out, huh?
P.S. I feel better already just making this decision!
Catching Up Before Winter - I had been without a computer for a bit so here are the last pics of the garden and yard for the year. First, the lemon pepper plant being harvested before...
