For several years I kept a little journal.
I still have three or four notepads lying around somewhere, and every now and then I'll read through them.
I always enjoy seeing what I though about life back in the olden days, and I always wish I'd written in them more often.
The fun I have reading those old notebooks is the main reason I write in this 'blog now. I imagine myself in the distant future, reading about stuff like how I ruined my first-ever painting project, and laughing at what a dork I was.
Lately though, it seems that I'm falling back into that old habit where I stop my journaling for no reason whatsoever.
I mean, in the past week I've had my roof completely replaced and I've made the arrangement to have my house painted. I've become completely unenamored with LaptopGirl, I've had my lawn mower fixed for free, I've had my heat pump fixed for big bucks, and I've got HDTV now.
It's not like it's hard to write this stuff. I guess I just need to keep reminding myself that I'm writing this for myself. If anyone else bothers to read it that's fine, but I've got to stop wondering if I'm too boring and just write. So that old version of me in the future will have something to do while he listens to his bones creak and his arteries harden.
Or maybe I'll be Supreme Galactic Emperor and this thing will be worth a lot of money.
