In no particular order, this has been what has been keeping me away.
1. Sickness of 18 year old family pet.
2. Passing away of 18 year old family pet.
3. Putting foot down that we would get another family pet immediately.
4. Immediately getting a new family pet.
5. Another 1/2 Marathon…completely shattering my previous personal best…shattering.
6. Family vacation at cabin, with sub-trip to tent camping with son.
7. Transfer of job duties.
8. Soccer coaching and officiating.
I think that I am back to earth now.
