December was a rough month for me.

Nothing serious, just a constant stress machine of minor colds and flues, trying to get Christmas shopping done, trying to stay on budget, trying to keep wife from going insane, while still working and taking kids to their activities. On top of it all my son Wilmick7 was training for his jiu-jitsu green belt and as a Sensei at the dojo I was helping him at open mats and in class and at home as I want him to succeed even more so as I feel my reputation is on the line as well. All minor shit on their own, but combined together in a compressed few weeks it was exhausting.

The pressure was off for one glorious day on the 23rd as work was done, green belt earned, activities we done, presents bought and wrapped.

Then the 24th came and we traveled to my wife's parent's place for two nights, then my parent's place for one night, then back home exhausted and tired.

A few days of peace and quiet, right? Hell no, it was -30 outside so kids were stuck inside and coming down from Christmas high and while they are well behaved kids it was a challenge keeping our sanity. I'm a bit of an extrovert, I need my quiet alone time with a good video game and I did not get that. By the time New Year's Eve rolled around, I was on edge and ready to murder someone. And with work looming again in two days, I was not in a good place.

Fortunately, I finally did get some decent video gaming time and the stress eased off a bit.

Needless to say, EVE has been on the back burner. The back back burner. I'm a half introvert/half extrovert kind of guy; I like social interaction and visiting and playing with people... up to a point. Then I need quiet alone time. Logging into EVE requires my introvert batteries to be fully charged to handle the social interactions of fleets and operations.

Now with the holidays over I hope to get back into a normal routine (including eating right and exercise which are both important parts of mental health) and find my center again.

Expect blogging and EVE playing to resume this week.

Hope everyone had a good holiday!
