now playing: dan fogelberg, “more than ever”
i have to start sleeping at some point.
but it’s probably not going to be anytime soon.
i’m starting to think more and more lately about splitting up the blog – keeping the one that’s attached to tomhampton.com a little more oriented towards professional pursuits and thoughts, and maybe moving some of the more personal stuff to another space. not that i’d necessarily hide it, but i don’t know that people who come to my site necessarily want to know what’s going on with me to the extent that i sometimes seem to insist on posting.
there is such a thing as too much information for some people.
obviously, the easy way out is to adopt the “if you don’t wanna know, don’t read it” policy, but i don’t know if that’s fair.
so, in a nutshell, here’s where i am right now: completely exhausted, for one thing. when i left for work this morning, i threw a few changes of clothes in the car, because i’m not sure if i’m going home for a while at the moment…i’ve got some things to think about, and i’m not sure that home is the place to think about them. i’m not sure where that would put me, but i’m feeling pretty good about just getting in the car and driving right now, to no place in particular.
a friend’s band asked me if i was available to sit in with them tonight, since one of their members has a spouse in the hospital…but i won’t know if i’ll actually have to do this until after 3. i’ve also got quite a bit of work here, and i could certainly eat up any number of hours here, if need be.
at lunchtime, i have to go run some errands – i’m meeting the wife for lunch, and i have to pick up a check and stop off at the kids’ mom’s house and then at school…
plenty of possibilities, i suppose – and i’m not really sure how i’ll feel when it’s time to leave work.
either way, i think i’m going to burn a few fresh travelling CD’s for the weekend and go somewhere and clear my head.
if that’s possible at the moment.
