There are so many things that I enjoy doing on the computer: programming, web design, graphic design, games, social networking, and browsing websites (just to name a few). I can’t count the number of times that I have woken up, gone straight to the computer and sat in front of it all day long until I’m ready to go to bed.

As I get older, that becomes harder to do for various reasons. Due to medical problems, I can’t even do all the things I used to enjoy on the computer but I do still spend a lot of time there when not forced away to do something else.

Summer is the hardest! There are so many festivals and events that I enjoy going to that I’m constantly off doing something else. Not to complain of course. I love doing those things. I’ve had to cut out some of the more lengthy events but I still love to go to quite a number of them every year.

And there are always projects. For instance, I promised my mother that I would build her a garden shed. Years ago, this would have been a weekend project (maybe a week). Unfortunately, I can’t do that sort of work for more than an hour or so a day which stretches it out over many months.

All these things tear away at my time and keep me from the computer. As a result, I just don’t have as much time to dedicate to my blog in the summer that I do the rest of the year. Another month and things should settle back down to normal. I’ve got quite a list of ideas for posts and am looking forward to having the time to write them!

That’s not to say that I won’t be posting anything for a month. Posts will just continue to be sporadic for another month until things settle down.
