Well, one more watch to go after this one. I came in a week early, and I'm leaving a week late. I've been on board the HQ for 6 weeks, and I'm only going home for a week. I promised myself I'd take it easy with working overtime this year, but I had a good reason. I bought a new house.
I go home to close the deal and start the move in. I still have my little place for the next few months, so there's time to move the heavy shit next time I come home. Either way, I didn't want to mention anything because home sales go sideways quite a lot, and I didn't want to queer the pitch, but things look pretty set now.
I'm losing having a pond in my backyard, but I'm gaining a lot elsewhere, not least that my shop space, which is a 2-car garage with my tools made to be moved out of the way for a car, will now be an actual shop space, and significantly larger. I plan on doing bigger things than making little 5-foot long ship models. As such, I've invested a fair bit on larger shop tools.
At any rate, it'll be a busy week home for sure.
Rest In Peace, Sgt. Miyamura
