How can one suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder when the city in which one lives has only one season? So maybe it isn't SAD that has me feeling the blues. Maybe it's my old nemesis Mercury doing its retrograde thing again. Whatever it is, I'm in a serious funk. I look at the calendar every morning and cringe as each unproductive day goes by and this morning it dawned on me that I need to get my shit together. We have twenty-four days to prepare for this cross-country move and we have yet to put a single thing into a box. Until yesterday, we didn't even have a box. And then there's the yard sale that we need to have but neither Elaine nor I have the least bit of desire to lift a finger toward getting it organized. In addition, I have to finish up my job here and start looking for a job there. I have COBRA insurance to coordinate, I have bank accounts to close and open, contacts to change, a storage unit to rent, the mover's contract to sign, car shippers to hire. Am I missing anything? Oh yeah, did I mention we're having a baby?
So I try to chip away at these things a little at a time, including yesterday when I spent a few hours adding to and consolidating all of my blogroll links, something I've been meaning to do for months. A word of advice: never attempt the technical while Mercury is in retrograde. So do me a favor: Please make sure that I have your link listed. If it's not there (or it doesn't work) and you know that your site was listed before the consolidation, please drop me a line. Also, I'm always open to adding sites to the list. If I haven't linked to you, please tell me. I know I'm missing some folks who have linked to Syntax of Things and I want to reciprocate.
SoT will return to normal soon. As normal as possible considering.
