The Alarm is set for 3:30 AM

Our flight leaves at 7 AM tomorrow morning which means we have to be there by 6, which means we have to leave here by 5, which means we have to get up before the ass-crack of dawn.

It’s okay though. I’d rather do it this way than get in to Portland at 10 PM. This way we land before noon, giving us the whole day there. I love flying west and gaining those 3 hours. Similarly, I hate flying back east and losing them.

I am all packed, and the house is cleaned, and the house-sitter has been de-briefed on last minute stuff today.

I am also feeling very grateful to my 2 very adept yoga teachers who will be keeping the studio open while I am gone. Sandy will be teaching Happy Hour tomorrow and Gentle on Tuesday, and Shelly will be teaching Power Yoga on Monday. I would love to take those classes. (I always miss my studio when I go away.) My practice will probably take a break as well.

I have built all my  vacations this summer as no-writing times, but I’m taking my notebook anyway. You never know.

I do plan to keep this blog streak going, so I will be posting every day while I’m there, and I hope to take lots of pictures as well.

I got a message from one of my readers this morning that this site is wonky for him. My links are dead, for example, and my side-bar widgets have disappeared as well as the comment block at the end of the post.

If you are NOT experiencing this, would you do me a favor and let me know in the comments below? (Obviously, if you are experiencing this you can’t comment.)

I contacted WordPress this morning and they told me to clear my cache, but that didn’t solve the problem. I didn’t have time to follow up with them today, but I hope to during the week. It’s frustrating when the site starts acting strangely and I can’t figure out why.

Okay, I am off to bed. 5 hours sleep isn’t much, but tomorrow I will be sleeping in Portland! I can’t wait.

I get to hug OBIE!!

Trying to Decide…

I just got an email from the poobahs at WordPress.  They are challenging bloggers who use this platform to commit to blogging every day in 2011.

I am sorely tempted…

Confession: I get totally STOKED around New Years.  I am a hopeless resolution maker.  I love to make resolutions and then buy tracking equipment: calendars, software, stickers, etc. to keep myself accountable.

When this email came, I was SO ready to jump all over this.  After all, tomorrow I will complete the December challenge at 750 words and earn my Albatross badge.  (!!!) Last year I did Holosync for 436 days without a break.

I am a complete streaker, love stacking up the days.  But EVERY DAY here???   What it will mean is some decent posts, but a lot of just showing up for the sake of showing up.  It might mean just a picture some days. It might mean a paragraph.  It might mean less than stellar content.

What do you think?

Since you check here in and read this blog, should I just continue here as I have been doing, being fairly consistent, albeit with longer breaks here and there?  Or do you think I should take the bait and try for 365 days of posts, regardless of content?

I’d really appreciate your input.

Thanks!
