Is it reasonable to say that I have been so busy that I haven't had time or energy to write? Whether it's reasonable or not, it's definitely the truth.
Since I last wrote, I/we have:
1. Moved apartments,
2. Started umpiring in a professional baseball league,
3. Traveled to Italy for the European Baseball Championship,
4. Planted 150 meters of sod in our new yard,
6. Guided a small group,
7. And everything else I normally do.
Each of these things has been some combination of mentally, physically and emotionally draining.
In spite of my lack of actual blog productivity, I have a number of blog ideas that will find their way into a draft to be presented here. I want to write about my experience as an umpire in a start up professional baseball league, things we have learned while living in an apartment tower for the first time, how I got fined for bad conduct by our new building manager, why it is so draining to move from one apartment to another in Israel.
