Well, this is the last day before my silent retreat. Yes, I am doing it on purpose. I am not being punished. I am "going off the grid" by choice. The only exceptions are checking my email once a day about jobs and answering the phone IF it is a potential job or my son. I am excited but also a little nervous about whether I will 1. be able to keep everything turned off, including the TV and the radio, and 2. get everything out of this time that I am hoping to get. I guess we will all find out this weekend when I post again.
I have lots to do today before my self-imposed exile tomorrow. I have to talk to my parents, and I have to run to the store (even though I don't really feel like it) to grab the necessities. I also have to put in as many applications as I can for the week. There is one other thing that might derail me this week; I am waiting to hear from the doctor about my back x-ray. But, overall, I am feeling pretty positive about the whole thing, and I am anticipating getting started.
Today's post may not be as entertaining as yesterday's, but I hope it may inspire some of you to give this a try.
