…no need to answer, really.
It’s been a busy, busy few weeks, with some spectacular highs and painful lows. Getting ready for the holidays, and a visit by our partner and longtime friend, spending time with her…that’s all been fabulous, truly. The abrupt illness and death of our cat, Capt. Midnight, not so much; the whole house is still grieving over that. In other news, I got a promotion and a raise at work, and our team has restructured itself to be even more the kind of team I really want to work on; the switch from Scrum to Kanban has made a dramatic difference in my work tempo and satisfaction. Additionally, the team at Opensource.com is talking to me about taking up a new column on Perl programming in 2018, there’s a book deal in the works, and I have two paid presentation gigs come up in the next few months.
On top of all that…well, writer’s block is a real thing. I’ve seen quite a few tidbits in the news lately that would make great writings, but just haven’t felt like writing much. It happens from time to time, I suppose. I really don’t know how every-day-plus bloggers do what they do.
I’ve got a few things in my queue that I’d like to chat about, so I’ll see how many I can throw out there for this week. Thanks for all your patience!
