I’m the only one who knows…..


After playing the game of always writing a daily post….something happened yesterday and I forgot to throw something up here.

1447 consecutive days of sitting down and doing something on the blog, and yesterday, I broke that streak.

Almost 4 solid years of never missing a day….and yesterday, I missed one.

Maybe it will be like running.

When I’m running, a day missed gives me the ability to say, “Oh, well….I missed yesterday, and it’s raining again…..maybe I’ll just skip today, too.”

And then….one day skipped turns into two and then three….and  I’ve got a different kind of streak going.

The thing about it yesterday was that I just forgot.

I sat down and watched a movie.

Before that, I was working in the yard or walking the dog or putting a child to sleep or….

There’s a million excuses and explanations.

It’s easy to end a streak.

Even if you aren’t trying, it’s easy.

And I’m the only one who noticed the whole thing.

Maybe I’ll do three blog posts today and whip myself with some alder branches to make up for missing yesterday’s post?


It’s good nobody was keeping score.

Maybe I could get away with missing a bunch of days?
