Vacation starts … now! Well, nearly so. I’ve turned off all the work-related apps on my phone and powered down the laptop. Tomorrow will be chores and packing the van. Sunday, we’ll make the five-hour drive for a week at the beach. We normally vacation in early July, but that’s not the dice we rolled this year. It’s been a hectic year and summer for us all, so we’re looking forward to a week of fewer commitments.

I’ll be spending some time next week working out my goals. And I’ll be posting some thoughts and commitments here. There certainly is something to making goals public. First, a level of vulnerability. I’m admitting to my weaknesses. Second is the level of accountability, if anyone is actually reading this.

And why the on-again/off-again blogging? I feel a need to write. To share some of what is going on in my life. And I don’t want to do that on Twitter or Facebook or whatever. So, here I am.

I do have some fun, learn some tech skills plans for this blog. Stay tuned for that.
