Oz Whiston writing as Oz Drummond


Thank you to everyone who tiptoed in and left good wishes while I was napping. No, srsly. Mucho appreciated. I wanted to post SOMETHING because I've been offline for so long, but had no energy. None. Nada. I was fine on Friday up to 6pm. Then I just dropped in my tracks. Sat and Sun weren't any better, though I made it to Scott Edelman's annual daffodil party. I have so much I want to blog about and couldn't organize a single thought except how tired I was. Hence, the very short post.

Weatherdude is off at this weather thing this week. He has a 90 minute presentation tomorrow. It's a total NWS weather geekery meeting at a resort 20 miles east of us. So we came up with the idea that I could commute. Put the kid to bed, drive to the hotel, drive home in the morning to get her off to school. Around here, that's an easy drive. And believe me, I'd be bored silly sitting in the hotel room or listening to weather geekery. He's busy from about 7am to 9pm every day. And this place is still in the middle of nowhere, despite Loudoun being one of the country's fastest-growing counties.

So why am I even mentioning it? Because it broke open something. It's not like I rested, it's not like I had some spa treatment or something. It's not like I had a relaxed evening or morning. But by changing the venue, even for a few hours, I came back to life. Weird, huh? Now I'm rarin' to get crackin' on some writing and will soon stop flapping my fingers in the blogosphere.
