Sorry If I Am Delayed In Getting Back To Anyone

By Ben Nadel on
Tags: Life, Work

Hello ColdFusion community. I wanted to apologize if it takes me a few days (or like two weeks) to get back to people lately; my work / relational / personal life have all been heavily conflicted lately and are having a bit of a war. I am trying to figure it all out. I should be more attentive and community-participatory in the very near future. This craziness, which started in like December has just taken much longer to resolve / calm down than I expected.

Thank Pete. It's like being stuffed in a burlap sack and getting beaten with a stick... maybe I have control, maybe I don't - either way, I just have to bear down, muscle my way through it, and know that in time it will get better.

Hey, at least I can still joke about it... that's got to count for something :)

Seriously though, I just need to simplify. Return to the basics. Refactor my life :)

Basics? Refactor? Ben... Sigh. How am I going to explain this to you. Son, there's a lot of problems and basics won't solve them. For example, one major problem is this: Lying to us about you being busy with family and work isn't going to get you anywhere. Come on we know all you do is dream about very masculine looking women. :) Tsk tsk tsk.

Oooh - trash talking. I *like* it! Although Javi, I gotta say, I've met both of you. He's got 40 lbs on you and it's all muscle, so you either better bring Scott along for backup or stay in Washington :->

Hey geh outta here! The family can take care of this fugazi, ok paisan? Fogehaboutit! I just hope things are going well Ben. :) It's funny because you apologize for something that isn't true. You post more then once a day which is awesome! That's true Peter, he would crush little ol' me. Hope everything is alright Ben.

Thanks man. Things are good. I am 100% of the mind set that it is much better to be busy than bored. So if you look at it one way, I am a lucky dude.

I think one of the biggest things for the past two weeks or so is that I have been staying late to help a friend with his web site. This puts pressure on my wrists, relationship, and general stress level. But that is just about done, so things should start to trend towards normal.

I think the insanity will only last another week or two and then it will be good. Thanks for the concern.

As far as not responding to people, I just had a bunch of comments and contact form submissions lying around the inbox that I had not had the time to respond to. I have cleaned that up though (I think only one or two stragglers).
