And while that's true, it's not the only reason why I haven't written a word in more than a week.
I've been incredibly busy.
Last Sunday, when I usually put together my tasting notes for Beer O'Clock and get my head into a frame for writing a Brown Knowser post, I was tired after having spent the weekend at yet another dance competition with my kids. I was so busy last weekend that I actually didn't have any beer. I didn't drink a drop. For me, not having any beer on a weekend is virtually unheard of.
And yet, I survived.
On Monday (I swear, I won't do a day-by-day breakdown of my week), after dinner, the family and I got caught up on some much-neglected house work, I decided that I would take one more day off and blog on Wednesday. I had shot a slew of photos on the previous week, so all I had to do was sort through them and do some editing.

That's show biz.
But my own show must go on. I need to focus and let the creative juices flow once again. I need to crack open a new beer and share my thoughts with my fellow beer lovers.
Obviously, that's not happening today. This blog post just goes to show how rusty I can get.
Because today is a holiday in Canada (Victoria Day), I'm taking time to think. I'm going to start my morning with a 100-kilometre bike ride, during which I plan to do a lot of thinking. Bike rides, I find, are great for that, and my thoughts also take me away from the fact that I'm pushing my body with exercise. It's a win-win situation.
Now that I'm back at the keyboard, I hope to make each post count. (Except this one.) If I don't get something down, that's okay. I'll take a night off again.
You'll be here when I have something, won't you?
Beer O'Clock returns tomorrow.
