After a brief hiatus, due to some internet problems, I am back. I love blogging five days a week, and I missed doing it for the past (almost) two days. I had a choice of how to deal with this problem, and after complaining about it, there was nothing left but to accept it. After all, I can’t change the cable company or how they do things.
The interesting thing about not having internet or TV in your house is that you get back to other things, like reading. I read a great book that I will blog about next week. My son and I spent time watching DVD’s and I got to bed early for the first time in a month.
All in all, it was not a bad deal. Life is a series of trade-offs. Maybe I do trade a bit of reading time for being online. Maybe I needed to spend more time with my boy. The truth is, after a day and a half I am very happy to have my TV back and do not see me giving it up anytime soon.
I just wanted to get back in the saddle and say hello. I know that for me, if I do not do something daily, the habit can fall apart very quickly. I have learned a good deal about discipline from one of my heroes, John Falchetto. I know that when he gets down, he gets right back up. This is what I admire about him. Get right back up after a setback, and keep moving forward.
How do you get back in the saddle?
