I’m sorry I haven’t been posting. In the afternoons, when I would usually write, for the last several days I’ve been making the house more energy efficient so we can be warm and reduce our heating bills. My other usual writing time is right after seeing my father to bed, but I’ve been going to bed instead for the crazy reason that I feel much better the next day when I go to sleep before midnight instead of 2 am or later, as I do when I’m writing and get carried away. I’ve also been reluctant to write because I’ve realized that my weight loss program has taken off more than extra pounds — I also have lost a good deal of my patience, compassion and sense of humor, especially if I write late at night when my blood sugar is low. This is sobering to contemplate because I need to be on this program for several more months to achieve my weight objective. For now it looks like the solution is to schedule my writing after lunch, which is my main meal of the day, and avoid writing in the evening.
However, there are plenty of things I have in mind that I want to write about, so I’m looking forward to getting back to posting in a day or two. Thank you, dear gentle readers, for your patience.
