Sorry, folks, but I have re-evaluated my priorities and decided to stop regular postings to this blog -- at least for now. There are too many things going on simultaneously, and I was losing sleep trying to keep up with all of them. I also wasn’t exercising regularly like I used to, and like I need to.
Believe it or not, until September of 2009, I used to play tennis an average of twice a week. I am a membor of a tennis club and the USTA and everything! Tennis used to be a big part of my life, and the life of my foster kids, too, as I would drag them to my league matches and practices. Then I injured my back and my elbow and took a break for them to heal. It was supposed to be a short break, but other things quickly filled in the time gap. Without really noticing it, six months went by!
I believe a balanced life leads to a happy life, and one element to a balanced life is regular exercise -- preferably the sort you look forward to rather than dread. My recent re-evaluation revealed how much I missed playing tennis, so I’ve rearranged my schedule to make playing a priority again. It sure feels good!
Unfortunately there are only so many hours in a day. Even without tennis I was having trouble keeping up. To put tennis back in my life I had to give some things up. Regular posting to this blog was one of these sacrifices.
I do plan to post when I can, and hope that the craziness of 2010 will eventually die down enough for me to post more regularly.
Thanks, and take care, everyone!
