I haven't posted to either of my blogs in a long time. It's just life: it gets you busy and gets you tied up, and suddenly you wake up and realize it's been weeks.
I've been working a lot: I worked 12 hours last Sunday, and 25--30 hours the weekend before that. That's billable hours, not actual hours. There are several in there in transit, waiting by the phone, etc. The joy of being a contractor is, your hours are billable, but you have to keep up with them.
We haven't been canoeing in a long time. And we'll probably not get out this weekend either. It's the wife's birthday this weekend, so we'll have family stuff going on. Not that there's a problem with that: it just means not a lot of time in the canoe. I may try and steal an hour or three sometime soon: maybe just with mhy oldest. She seems the most enthused about canoeing of the lot.
I got a new computer: a 17" MacBook Pro. My tax person was upset how few deductions I had for my self-employment tax, so I bought the new laptop. Wow! It's an awesome development platform, and a joy to work with. That's been a bright spot, although the price tag did make me gulp.
I've been investing more time in bagua and xingyi recently. I've gotten fat and I'm out of shape, so it's time to knock the rust off the martial arts, remember how to do pushups, etc. Hard, but it's worth the time.
So that's my life. Hopefully it'll calm down here soon.
