An odd day. I got to work, turned on my computer, opened up my e-mail, and started to work on a memo that I really needed to get done last Friday. What did I do next? Promptly stared at my computer screen for the next 7 hours, that’s what I did. The writing is on the wall, I know when to say uncle.
I finally made overtures to take some time off over the coming weeks. As such (and assuming everything is approved), I will be taking a six week leave beginning next Monday, January 8. It will be really nice. I need time to get back on my feet, and I really want to spend some quality time with Lynn right now. Also, she needs me here on a more full time basis to help care for her and care for our home. And I also really want to make this a REALLY memorable Christmas for the kids.
Man…it sounds like I am trying to sell someone, huh? I don’t know. It still bothers me a little that I am doing this. It will take money from savings, how will it look to the blah, blah, blah… It’s not simply that I want this time, however, I believe I really NEED this time. I have pushed myself far enough over recent weeks, months, years. Even the great Bill-dini needs a break every now and then, I guess.
So…there it is. And, of course, I am hoping that this allows me some time to write. Perhaps get a ways on the adaptation? Who knows. I would kill to walk out of January with at least a draft, though. Know what I mean?
I am still caught in the space in between, and I can’t seem to quite get out of it yet.
Anyway, that’s all I got for tonight, folks. On the more technical side, however, there are a couple of really cool developments.
First-My eBusiness department (i.e., Tim Canfield…THANKS! YOU DA MAN! …And yes…I am buying your wife soup tomorrow) set up web domain forwarding for me, so when you type http://www.billtrue.net in your browser, you automatically come here. That means that until further notice, I guess this is the home page for billtrue.net. Cool, huh?
Second-I posted a few writing works of mine. People have been asking me about it, so I thought I would oblige. It’s all short stuff, so they’re pretty fast reads. And, no…I didn’t post RUNAWAY BOYS. Sorry…you’ll have to wait for the movie now.
