Well, I see that it has been 18 days since I last posted anything. I have no internet access at home, and I am way too busy at work to be writing blog posts. It's funny, I was completely overwhelmed at the seminary, and felt like I would never catch up--I never did--but I sometimes seemed to be able to find time to write there--mostly at lunch and before 8:00. At the parish, I am very busy, but not at all overwhelmed. Still, I never have time to write, even when I'm there early, and if I finish eating early, I go back to work.
It shouldn't be any suprise to anyone--if anyone is even still checking the blog except my devoted spambots--that I plan to put the blog on hold for a while. I need some distraction-free time to pray and--well, mostly to pray. So, I won't be posting anything until at least Advent, and maybe until Christmas, but I don't know if I can resist the lure of Advent. I hope to be writing during my time away, but I frequently hope that without results.
I'll probably turn off the comments sometime tomorrow, but the blog will still be up.
For those of you who are Facebook friends, I have most of you hidden now so I won't be seeing what you say. I'll basically only be using Facebook to connect with my adult children and a few others for the next few months. If you need to let me know something for some reason, you can inbox on Facebook, or I think my email address is on my blogger info page. But I suspect you won't need to reach me.
I've asked Maclin at Light on Dark Water to let the folks there know when we move back home and when I start up the blog again, and I'll put something on Facebook, too.
God Bless you all, and thank you for reading. I'll miss you. Pray for me.
