I'm sputtering into the weekend, my friends.  I just have not had my normal universe of things I want to talk about, which has seriously dampened by motivation to write.  On most mornings, I feel like I could write all day.  For the past three days, I've grasped at topics and put out, what I would consider to be, sub-par posts.

In part, this may be due to my decision to drastically reduce the amount of time I spend on Facebook.  I won't go too much into the why, but in summary, I just felt like it was the sugar of a social life without the wholesome vitamins that go with speaking to a person face to face.  In doing so, I've missed out on whatever it is that people see to be happy, angry, or otherwise fired up about in public affairs.  I would lie if I said I missed it, but it does help me get my head around my own thoughts on things and put together posts for you to read...and be happy, angry, or otherwise fired up about it.

Other than that, I've just been in a bit of a rut.  It seems whiny to say I need a weekend after only working four days this week, but...I do.  I need a weekend.  I need a newspaper.  I need an hour of quiet time with a cup of coffee.  For the most part, this may just be "catching up".  Constantly putting your thoughts out for public consumption creates momentum, and it is hard to jump back onto the treadmill from a full stop.

So for today, you'll have to forgive the dinky post.  See you on the other side of the weekend.

Oh, and...have a great Friday doing what you love!
