After the whirlwind pace of my week spent in Boston, I spent my last 5 days at home, and thanks to the hard work of my wife and kid, managed to pack plenty of family time and rest into my days, so I returned to work today feeling energized and ready for another 4 weeks of making silk purses out of sow's ears.
I even took a morning to work on the little boat, and got it all set up to continue on next month, when I get home again.
It's up to about 5lbs now. Best I can figure, I'll need about 40lbs of ballast at some point. I'll probably just use some old dive weights.
At any rate, I'm back at work and moved back in. Expect greatness... well, mediocrity, really, soon.
