Not Enough Time for Hobbies

I haven’t had much time for hobbies in the last few months, and I can’t say for sure that it will be getting any better.

First, I broke my arm which really ended my golf and softball playing for the year.  I did manage to play 9 holes on October 20th, right before the weather started turning nasty.  The good news is that I shot better than I had hoped and was really pretty consistent with my efforts before the fracture.  My wrist and arm was sore, but no worse off than when I started.  But my ball flight was a bit off since I was afraid to take a divot and hit my arm on the ground.  However, it continues to feel better each day and has been pretty good the last few days.

Second, I had a huge test to take on the 19th, which limited my ability to much of anything the past several months anyway.  I started studying in July and continued during August when I was off work with the break.  But once I started working again in September, I spent almost every waking moment studying to the exclusion of blogging, which I still consider a hobby.  Now that the exam is done and there is no opportunity to play due to weather, I feel like I have a lot of free time.

Alas, it won’t last long.  Of course I have a lot of catching up with items around the house plus I will, in all likelihood, become the owner of a small printing business as part of an ongoing issue that goes beyond this blog post.  It will probably consume some of my time as I have to work with mainly oversight issues, but still.  Ultimately, I hope that it is worth it.

It does feel good to be writing a bit.  I have taken the past week to do a little pleasure reading which was a nice break.  I re-read “Catching Fire” since the movie will be coming out soon (November 22nd), and I wanted to be able to compare the book to the movie and didn’t remember all the details.  I enjoyed being able to read without feeling like I had to memorize each detail.

Anyway, I do hope to be able to do a bit more blogging over the next couple months.  It feels good to be able to write a little again.

Carnivals

I need to catch up with a few carnivals, but had stopped doing this since I wasn’t publishing as much.  Plus I really don’t want to put any money into the blogging adventure preferring it to pay for itself.  With a decrease in revenue, I needed to watch the expenses so paying to have articles posted to carnivals was the first thing that was cut.

But, I do have to link for the last few so here goes:

 

The Tortoise Banker Carnival – SD

Carnival of Financial Independence #24 – GPM, PT
Carnival of Money Pros – PT, GPM
Hope the month of November will go well for everyone.
