I Don't Have Time To Write This Blog Post

I don't have time to write this blog post.

No, seriously. I've got two or three drafts of other articles that are have just been sitting in my queue partially complete for months now. I totally intended to be blogging a lot more this year than I have been so far.

But I just don't have time.

Fortunately, the reasons I don't have time are pretty good ones. For instance, I've been busy working on the Barista Update for Cook, Serve, Delicious! 2!!, and I actually got to go to Boston to show off the game with two other developers. In fact, one of my incomplete drafts is an outline for a post about that experience from my perspective, which took a back seat to co-writing an official blog post for the company on the same subject. I might still write something on that, since I've got more to say on it from a personal perspective, but right now I just don't have time.

Another reason I don't have time to write this blog post is that I've also been hired to work for the marketing company of one of the guys I met in Boston, so I've got even more freelance work to do in my otherwise free time.

Plus it's summertime, so I've got housework and yard work and I'd really rather just be outside enjoying the warm Wisconsin weather before life freezes over in a few months.

Oh yeah, and I spread myself really thin with personal projects such as editing hours of home videos, sorting through and touching up hundreds of photos, creating a follow-up to my Blade Runner Ambient Soundscape, writing stories, working on house projects, etcetera etcetera etcetera ...

But the main reason I have no time to write this blog post, or to do so many other things, is because my wife and I are expecting our first child in November.

Please understand: this isn't even an announcement. I've already announced this on other more popular social media platforms back in early May. I just need you to understand why I haven't been able to update this blog in a while, even though I've had every intention to. I just have so much going on right now that it's insane. I doubt taking care of a newborn is going to free up that schedule much, but I guess I can at least try to get as much of it done as possible before then.

Anyway, I'm sorry I haven't updated this as frequently as I normally do. Feel free to reach out to me on my new website if you really want to know what's going on in my life.
