A Little Extra Time Each Weekend

As it turns out, there was a slight inaccuracy in my previous post. Toward the end of that post, I mentioned that I didn't think I had ever let two weekends go by without posting something to this blog. Somewhere in the back of my mind, I had the vague suspicion that I had done precisely that, but I didn't bother to confirm that suspicion since it was much easier to simply deny it.

But after checking the dates, I now see that after I posted something on June 14th of this year, I didn't post again until July 5th, which means that I didn't post anything on the weekends of June 21st and June 28th.

You might have noticed that I didn't post anything last week either. And for that matter, I wasn't really planning on posting anything this week, but I decided to anyway. It wasn't because of the "butterfly effect" -- it was because I wanted to let you know that I probably won't be posting as regularly to this blog as I've done in the past.

So if you don't see any updates to this blog in the next few weeks -- or maybe even the next few months -- don't be alarmed. It doesn't mean that I got too sick to write, or that I died, or that anything as drastic as that befell me. All it means is that I didn't post something for a while.

It probably won't ruin your life to have to go from week to week without my witty and scintillating prose to sustain you, but even if it does, I'm sure you'll be able to endure it and ultimately emerge a stronger person in both body and mind.

As for me, I can usually find something to do that's enjoyable and rewardling and likely to keep me out of trouble, so I'm not too worried about what I'll do with the extra time each weekend. But if I can't think of anything, you'll probably be hearing from me.
