If I don’t post here for several days, it’s because of one of two things: 1) I have nothing to say, or 2) I am totally swamped at work and/or home and have no time to blog. In this case, the latter has been true. Power outages again (sigh).
It’s still pretty busy today, but by mid-afternoon I knew I needed to find a way of dumping some stress. I escaped from my office for a bit of a walk around the Millinnium Trail. It’s amazing how just 15 or 20 minutes in the fresh air can make all the difference to one’s state of mind. All the drama of the day just falls away.
Speaking of drama, I have to admit to temporarily suspending my self-imposed news ban. After all, what’s going on in Ottawa is too good to pass up. Even my two youngest kids, who typically show no interest in politics, have been talking about the events and asking lots of questions. Yes indeed, we do live in interesting times!
