1529….and, er….2

I missed a second post out of 1529 somewhat consecutive days of never missing a day of writing this blog….last night.

I mean, I missed a day.

Of writing.

2 now….2 missed days out of years of writing.


It’s really no big deal.

I’m the only one who probably noticed.

But, it’s just like the running.

If I don’t skip at least one of the priorities that I need to try to cover….whether it’s cleaning up after myself….or trying to fix something that is broken or sure to break later….or….maybe just getting some sleep….if I don’t put the activity out in front of my responsibilities….I’m going to miss a day at some point….and every time I miss a day, it gets easier to miss a day on down the line.

Once you miss one, the spell is broken and you see that none of it really matters.

I fell asleep with Nate…putting him to bed….and when I woke up it was 11:00 and the computer was off and I didn’t think about anything other than just going to bed

So…..I didn’t post anything.

Until I woke up this morning, I didn’t even realize that I’d missed another day.

But….maybe it’s better to not post “anything” than it is to try to find another video to hold my place until I’m not too groggy to write something that I actually care about?


Nah…..here’s another video.

Maybe I’ll get some rest and the pointless string will continue.

And….it’s really hard to find a “stupid” YouTube video when you’re trying to prove a point. This video is actually kind of cool….cycle touring Japan.

That would be a good reason to miss a blog post…..cycling Japan.

That would be more exciting than trying to fix the old dishwasher.


2 out of 1529 isn’t really all that bad.
