It’s weird…last year I had tons of stuff to talk about. I had projects and ramblings and thoughts (yes, I even had thoughts…but that was last year). This year, I feel busier than ever but I have nothing to show for it…or nothing interesting anyhow. My days are consumed by that pesky work thing and my evenings are taken up with kids’ practices of various sorts and the remodeling of our house.
I dig remodeling the house…mainly because of all the money I save and because I can do it right, but it’s so uninteresting. I suppose I could post pictures of the new board I just installed or pictures of the paint drying, but I think that might not be much fun. Don’t get me wrong, I love to watch paint dry (or is it that I like the fumes?), but it’s hard to capture that delight on film.
Although things seem less interesting blogaliciously speaking, I think I am more pleased with the large scale tinkering rather than the small scale tinkering this year. I sort of feel like an exhibitionist (no comments) sharing all sorts of stuff on here…and enjoying it. But since I feel like I have less to say, I wonder if I have gotten more boring or if I just ran out of crap to brag about. Anyone ever feel like that? I mean, when I go to the Y to exercise, the old men there lead me to think that they are more into “openness” rather than being closed off (for the love of pete…close your towel…or even more importantly, wear one when you sit on the chairs in the locker room reading the newspaper for half an hour), so I don’t think I am all of a sudden getting shy…maybe just boring.
Well, enough of my rambling…do you folks like to watch paint dry…or have you seen yourself change as time goes by?
