Zeit. Geist. Baby.

Time is a funny thing. It keeps going and going and it don’t stop for nothin’ or nobody.  It moves slowly and it moves fast. Looking back, it happened in the blink of an eye. Looking forward, it drags on forever.

My side hustle is a fitness studio. While there, I do a lot of counting. Down. I do a lot of counting down. Mostly from 45, 44, 43, 42, 41, 40. I am aware on the daily how long and slow 45 seconds can be. One's perception of time usually depends 100% on what you're doing and 100% on your mindset about what you're doing.

I started this here wee little bloggy spot to share our home-owning and home-improving adventures and a little about about our fair city TEN FUCKING YEARS AGO. Whoa. That's kind of crazy. Time is a funny thing.

I stopped posting regularly for two reasons. One, house projects slowed. Our ability to afford and find time for home improvement projects just did not keep pace with weekly posts about house related improvements. It started to make me sad that we weren't making progress because I didn't have 'post material'.

The second reason I stopped posting regularly is because my relationship with Holyoke changed. I'm not willing to say more about that. Yet.

But about 4 months ago, I felt thawed out enough to post again. We have completed MANY projects I can share with you. Also? I missed reading the sound of my own voice. Then I saw this: http://parenthacks.com/2018/10/blogs-rebuild-america.html and then this https://thebloggess.com/2018/11/14/calling-all-bloggers/ and look! I was with the zeitgeist! I was actually so inside the zeitgeist, I was soaking in it!

The thing I love about blogging is connecting with you. I so so enjoy comments and feedback. Please know I welcome yours.
