This is the longest block of time I've taken away from this blog in five years.
It was a nice vacation, to be frank. Needed, I think.
Gave me a chance to sit and do some thinking about the direction and the content of this page. I thought about a number of plans and factors in my life and I don't like the results I thought I was getting. Stress is just killing me - both at work and at home. Odd sleeping patterns brought about by further stress of being a parent and being without a steady daily cycle is also kind of troubling to me as of late.
In any case ... enough whining.
It was a nice vacation. I did some planning, which is ongoing. I need to re-begin the work.
