Where have I been?

That's a great question. Well, last week was, somehow, lost in the muddle.

Probably watching a country in economic distress spend over $100 million on the inauguration was a little frustrating. (for the record, I didn't think we should have spent whatever we spent on the last several inaugurations. It's not a beef specific to President Obama.) After all, think about the number of foreclosures that could have been averted had outgoing President and incoming President met in the Oval Office, shook hands, and had CNN bring live video everywhere. It would have given an impression to everyone that he does understand problems. Then, throw him a $100 million party when the recession is over.

Anyway, then there were some other things that had to get done, and now I'm back to blogging.

Some of you may be wondering what happened to the Greek Reading posts. Well, I realized something. After 10 years, I don't read Greek anymore. I look at Greek words, recognize 2 of them, dredge up the rest of the passage from memory. So, my new plan is to read through the New Testament in Greek in 6 months. I'm working on organizing my day to have time to review Greek and learn Polish. Why? Because, the NT is in Greek, and people in Poland speak Polish. And I want to go to Poland and work with some of the IMB's missionaries there. No offense intended to the rest of the world, but that's where I want to go, so I might as well learn the language!

What else? I deleted the Haiku blog. After being forced to change the name, and having it treated like it was something huge and important, rather than just something fun, I lost interest. It wasn't fun, and I can't bring myself to make short poetry important. I changed the politics blog to 'politicallyagitated.blogspot.com' because I'm not really running for President, and wanted the freedom to say things about all levels of politics.

This week started ok, Monday morning was fine, then things just got a little nutsy around here. Now, I think we're past most of that. I've got some book reviews to post, some other things to get out into the electrons. So, if you're a faithful reader, thanks for the break! I'm back, and ready to rumble.
