On the advice of commentor "K," I am taking the weekend off - completely. I'm not answering any emails. I'm not logging onto the internet. I'm not reading any essays, newspapers, magazines or books (which will be difficult because I just got my first issue of National Review in the mail!) I'm not going to talk politics. I am even going to try not to think about politics and the state of the country/world, and I am hoping that effort will be successful. :-)
The last few weeks have been especially grueling, on top of the almost nonstop efforts that started in February. I definitely needed a break.
I'm suggesting this to others as well. If you're feeling overwhelmed, frustrated, tired, anxious, upset, and on and on, then try to take this Labor Day weekend off as well. Try to avoid news and politics for at least a couple of days and just enjoy your family and friends. We need to be well rested and strong for the upcoming battles. I know I need a recharge, and I wouldn't doubt many of you do as well.
I've ignored my fiance for about seven months now, poor guy. We're going to just be a normal couple for a few days and just live life.
So have a FANTASTIC weekend, and thank you for your patience regarding responses and posts.
