Things have been crazy lately. The job’s been hectic. I’ve not been posting quite as much. But I still heart you guys.
Five and a half years of doing this day-in-day-out I think is finally starting to take its toll, and I want to be honest about that. I also feel like I’m in a spot where I can’t give SFB the full care it deserves at the moment, so I haven’t. Maybe that’s a sign that I’m getting old or something; I don’t know. But I think prior to the past month or so, I missed maybe a week or two of posting, total, over that whole time frame.
So let’s call it what it is. It’s a sabbatical. I’m not giving SFB up, I promise. I’ll be back soon, hopefully with mental juices refreshed. I may still post here and there—and throw snark every now and then. But I think that I just need some time off.
I miss you guys. I’ll be back soon. I promise. — Ernie @ SFB
