Back from a Blogging Hiatus

I am hopefully back from a long blogging hiatus. Things just got a little crazy for a couple of weeks at work and at home. I spent a lot of time working with some members of the IBM SAP consulting practice on enterprise integration issues related to connecting SAP to non-SAP systems. It was fun and I learned a little about the “order to cash” process while I was at it but it suffocated my blogging-related brain cells. I also spent numerous weekend hours braving the June and July heat in Nashville to scratch a couple of items off my “honey do list.” These items were however only belatedly off the list as I was reminded “if you’d done it earlier in the year it wouldn’t have been so hot.” Also during this time I have been trying to take better care of myself and get some much needed exercize on weeknights. Put those three things together and you have very few discretionary hours left for blogging. Surely, I am not the only blogger to have this problem?

From another IBMer, that would be a definite NO, you're not alone. Between playing with my kids, exercise, the obvious home todo list, and the few personal projects I have - blogging is probably in position #19 recently, after cleaning the garage freezer, but before cleaning the bird bath in the backyard.

Yeah, maybe our generation creates too much work for ourselves. Sometimes, I think I should just quite 3/4 of the things I think I *have* to do, and do like our grand-parents did: read the paper after dinner, invite the neighbours over and play some cards and to bed early...
