The Big News that Someone (me) Leaked on Monday

The future of this blog may be in peril…

It may never be like it was before…

Hey, who said that… What do you mean… “There might actually be some activity around here!”?

No. I mean that I may never find time to post again. I truly hate to predict the demise of this blog, but there is pending activity in my personal life that will most likely make it hard to blog.

I have written about this pending change in my life before. So much so, that many of you probably thought that it was just talk. Honestly, I was starting to think that it was just talk myself.

I am even a little afraid that by writing about it now, I am going to curse myself, and this wonderful life change won’t happen. However, I must tell you with excitement and glee that tonight will be my last night working the graveyard shift.

Yep, starting with the new year (maybe New Year’s Eve Day), I start working the day shift. It is really hard to believe. I honestly will be in partial denial until I am on the day shift for at least a week.

So, what does this mean for the blog. Well, I usually write while I am at work. Generally, I can do this, because I have no boss, and until recently, I had no coworkers to see what I was doing. So, I felt that I could flagrantly abuse my company free time to write.

Unfortunately, by moving to the day shift, I will be working the same shift as the boss, and there will be a lot less free time. Thus, I don’t know if I will be able to maintain my blog. I will try. I even have hopes of starting up a whole “Why not…” series where I discuss the varied Republican Presidential Candidates. And if time presents itself, that is my next blogging project.

Anyway, if this proves to be my last post, then farewell. If not, then here is to many happy returns.

    Good luck with the change. You can still blog at night. Sleep is for the weak.

    You won’t be able to stay away. 🙂

    Blogger offers an offline feature I’ve seen somewhere that allows you to create drafts, then post them by logging in at your next available internet connection. Wait it might not be blogger. Perhaps I should’ve researched more before commenting.

    Regardless, there are options for you still. I’ll see if I can remember where I found it and get back to you.

    You could also blog from your email. Your boss will just think you are corresponding with a really important customer. I hope this isn’t the last we hear from you.

    Well, I hope that I didn’t give the impression to anyone that I was done blogging. I really want to keep posting. I just don’t know that it will be easy. I will look into some of the options suggested, but still, if we are busy, then I don’t know if I will have the time. And the whole boss over the shoulder thing is really nothing. See, he is so technologically behind, that I don’t know if he knows the difference between a blog and a customers information website. But it is nice to have people who like to read my ever infrequent comments.

    Congratulations are in order! I know that you’ve been wanting this for a long time, and I hope it’s everything you wanted it to be. Hopefully you have more time to spend with your family. My dad worked nights for my entire childhood, and us kids spent all day trying to not wake him. By dinner time, he was donning his “browns” (he drove a semi for UPS) and getting ready to leave for work. Your children will be glad to have you there to tuck them in at night. 😀

    Looking forward to you being able to blog again.

    Have fun.
