Well, it's been a week since I've written a blog entry. There are a few reasons for that, the first and foremost being my lower back is still an issue, and sitting down for extended periods is difficult. This has made my somewhat prodigious blog output dry up for a bit, and frankly, I think I needed the break.
As I was going through and reviewing my posts, there has been a marked "duplicate" sense in the posts I've been writing. I've realized that this is because, frankly, there's not enough happening in my everyday life to make unique enough blog posts to justify an every day entry.
What has been interesting in these past few weeks since this whole back issue came into my life (again), is that I've had to actually look at seeing which things I was doing were really important, and which thing I had to just say "sorry, I can't do that" or "this just hurts too much to deal with". While I have had to deal with some frustration at that fact, it's actually forced me to prioritize some things differently. It's also made it clear that convalescing is a long process and it really cuts into the rest of my life, so I think I really need to make not getting into these situations a priority (LOL!).
I will start writing blog posts again later this week, but it's going to be a slower pace going forward. It was interesting writing every day for awhile (almost three months), but I've decided that there are other things that need to be handled for the time being, so for those who like reading me daily, hopefully this will mean better writing, just less frequently.
