I’ve always wondered about people who blog daily. I certainly can’t do it – at least not now with my current workload. Maybe when we’re in Costa Rica, but I really hope I spend less time at the computer when we’re there.
In the past month I built a social network site for unschoolers, which is now in the testing phase. Sometimes you have to run with an idea while the inspiration is there, and it had to be done. I’ve had a couple of NYT articles on my mind, one on how discoveries & advancements occur thanks to incremental knowledge & improvements over time, and another article that posited that innovation was more important than perfection. The first made me develop the site, allowing me to make something I cared about while increasing my knowledge, while the second convinced to make the site live as soon as possible as my anal retentive streak could keep it on ice for weeks while I tinkered.
There’s also the issue of selling the house that’s hanging over our heads. Spring is coming and doing stuff with 2 active kids is near impossible. We caught a nice break when a carpenter/contractor we requested an estimate from was open to bartering for a website. Looks like he might be down with becoming a duck owner too – he was very interested in them and I’m waiting to hear what he thinks of the eggs we gave him.
This whole time Costa Rica has been in our minds. Cold weather made it easy to think of the warm weather there. The empty trees inspired visions of the greenest of green leaves. We’ve made it to March after a milder than usual winter and will see about getting the house on the market next month. After that, we cross our fingers & wait.
