A Frustrating Reminder That I Can’t Always Be Completely Open Here

The next two weeks are going to be interesting around here. My life has kind of undergone a major shift and I’m eager to talk about it and eager to document every aspect of it in the sort of narcissistic manner I’ve grown used to around here. But the dictates of professionalism, decorum, and common sense mean that’s not always possible and the last thing I want to do is screw other people over with my self-centered blatherings.

So I’m torn with being coy and cheeky and throwing around hints and clues and playing it as a game as I’ve done a little bit on Facebook and on this site, or just ignoring it completely and waiting until the end of next week when everything is hammered out and official to get rolling with the documentation. Seeing as part of this involves a week-long trip to Europe where I won’t able to communicate back here without incurring ridiculous roaming data charges makes the idea of shutting my trap for a couple of weeks the more likely plan.

Also, it’s not like I don’t have other things to talk about. It’s almost Christmas and I have greedy little kids to vent about and I have a wife I want to surprise within the rigid guidelines she’s given me, and I continually believe my day-to-day activities warrant over-indulgent analysis and publication here of that analysis.

But what do you all think? I’m open to suggestions.

  1. I’d go for venting to your heart’s content about your day-to-day activities, and availing of free wifi when you’re in Europe (assuming you’re going to western Europe, it’s easy to find ;)

  2. Do what’s best for your family, and what won’t scuttle any deals in the works. And then…SPILL!!!!!!

  3. The holidays present so many opportunities for stress for children and their parents. I wonder how you will spend time, not dollars, with your children before you travel. I know from your previous post about haircuts that you are a fantastic dad and that your children will miss you as much as you miss them. I wonder too if your custom is to bring back souvenirs that you share as you tell stories of what you did while you were away.

  4. Nancy, I will talk about those things tomorrow because I think you’re right, it is interesting and source of drama and of love. I actually haven’t traveled much without the kids so that process is in the process of being refined.
