I’m in a funk.

A lot of small projects had to take a backseat while I was finishing up my two year project. Now it’s payback time. I have a list of about 20 things that I am working on that aren’t what I’d call real interesting, but they need to get done anyway. Things like cloning Oracle Applications. Yuck. But a necessary evil.

I thought getting some reading under my belt would get me back into the swing of things. I picked up Expert Oracle Database Architecture: 9i and 10g Programming Techniques and Solutions three times in the last two weeks, but just couldn’t get into it. Ventured to a different Barnes and Noble last night to peruse their computer section, but came out with People Magazine.

I get started on a bunch of things, but just can’t seem to finish. In fact, I started on this post about 4 days ago, but just never got around to finishing it. I have four good ideas in my blog “Drafts” area, but just can’t flush out the energy to fully develop them.Sometimes I feel like Sisyphus rolling my stone.

This too shall pass.

I think it is just that time of the year.

I can't seem to get motivated for work/technology related things.

But my yard has never looked so good, I have built 3 peices of furniture and put many kilometers on my bicycle.

But I can't seem to finish Cost Based Oracle fundamentals no matter how many times I try it.

Winter isn't far off then the lure of the outside will diminish as the mecury drops.

Ditto! Something about mid-summer always pulls me away from the computer. Gosh, if we moved South (as my husband keeps threatening to do) I don't know that I'd ever get anything done.

Enjoy the lull -- as herod points out winter truly is coming. There's plenty of time.

Well, you know what you could always do??

Have a guest writer come in and do a blog for you.

Yea, blogs are a "personal" space but I look at them kind of like an editoral.
Hey Jeff is on vacation this week and he's asked me to fill in for him!

Todays subject is about the latest craze! Tin Foil flavored chewing gum!
