Hello…

Hello and welcome to 2022. I meant to do this in the beginning of January, but I am only getting to this now. Why you ask, there are the usual things. Work, life, home improvement projects, family… the list goes on. I will explain.

Work…

In January of 2020 my contract with the company I was with ended. In looking to extend it, COVID settled into the country. The company decided at the time not to renew it.  While I was unemployed I probably overcompensated by taking on all house work (my wife was still employed).  I finally started a new job last August. That’s the upside, the downside is that after sitting all day looking at spreadsheets and Zoom calls, sitting and writing at night isn’t high on my list. Though I find it relaxing and therapeutic, it’s not  want I want to do at night.

Life/Family…

Then there was the puppy (already covered this).

Last is our parents. While my mother has aged gracefully, she is 97, my wife’s parents have been not as fortunate. Though I do spend time with my mother who has been able to stay in her home, we have been spending a lot of time caring for her parents.

Upside, my son and daughter-in-law have new jobs (remote) and are moving from Kansas City back to Minneapolis in the spring.

Home Projects/Etc…

I covered the projects from last year and there are more on the horizon for the coming spring/summer. Some are things I will be taking care of and the others are things that my wife decided should be handled by others. There will be prep work for those but nothing to involved.

What you care about…

All of this doesn’t mean that I haven’t had time to spend downstairs. In fact I have been able to get some quality time downstairs. Early on, if I was downstairs the puppy wanted to join me. The problem was I had to be ever vigilant as she was constantly looking for something to get into/destroy. As time went by she has no interest other than popping downstairs to see what I’m doing and to say hi. Which means when I’m down there I get more done.

Which I’m looking forward to sharing with you. I have mainly been working on projects that have to do with finishing scenes. This means working on the background projects. Also, I have been working  on some structure builds and a caboose project. All of which I will be reporting on soon.

So…

Thank you again for stopping by during this drought. I know you have been checking in to see if there was something new and there hasn’t been. Please check back soon for new updates. I hope not to disappoint.

Again, thank you…
