It’s like a malicious boomerang, isn’t it? It always comes back, and even though we know it’s returning, we still don’t see it coming so it smacks us in the back of the head and leaves us dazed and confused.
Today is also Patriots’ Day, but as a Jets fan living in New England, I have a difficult time acknowledging the holiday. In my muddled mind, today is Football Day, which confuses me because it’s baseball season.
So how was your weekend? Mine was quite relaxing. The sun was shining, the temperature was finally at an acceptable level for Spring, and I was able to sit out on the porch and write.
Not much relaxes me more than writing on my porch, Modern Philosophers. It is a sure sign that Snow Miser has been banished, and that the hope and glory of Summer will soon arrive to melt the last of the Winter and Spring snow.
I had a great weekend in terms of fitness. I put in two extra long workouts at the gym, went for a long after dinner walk on Saturday, and continued to resist the enticing temptation of sweets.
All this really helped with my goal of being a more positive person. In fact, I’m positive that this is going to be an awesome week.
I’ve got a taping of The Nite Show on Wednesday, which means late nights writing for a couple of days, but it will be well worth it when I’m enjoying the taping with a live studio audience on Wednesday night. Plus, I get to relax on Thursday’s Writer’s Day!
Do you guys know that I have a weekly column over on The Good Men Project? It’s published every Friday under the ridiculous title Whoopie Pies & Yankees.
I’m still building an audience, so I would really appreciate it if you could check out this week’s column and share it if you enjoy it.
Sure, it’s a bit controversial, but I’m looking to inspire Deep Thoughts and a conversation. If you do go over to read it, I hope you’ll post a comment to let me know where you stand on the issue.
You can also always find me by Googling my name and The Good Men Project. It still amazes me how those search engines just know where to send us!
Some of you might have noticed that I finally took myself out of the lineup Wednesday night and broke my blogging iron man streak after three and a half straight years of publishing a new daily post.
Life just caught up with me, in a good way, and my priorities have changed. I’m still going to blog as often as I can, but when something more important comes up, I’m not going to put that on the back burner until my blog post is written.
Part of being more positive is better understanding who and what deserves my time and attention. Sometimes, I get so lost in my bubble and trapped in my routine that I don’t realize I am missing out on life.
Well, that’s enough babbling out of me for one Monday morning. Help yourselves to some coffee. I’ve also baked yummy Football Day cookies in the shape of Jets helmets and Joe Namath’s fur coat. Enjoy.
Keep in mind, in seventeen hours, it will be Tuesday!
