Time flies when you’re having kids. In the last entry, I promised to wait no more than a single month before unpacking my mirror and resuming grinding. I now see that I have only two days left, and am not ready! But I haven’t been lazy. In that time, my wife has had a baby, my plumbing has sprung multiple leaks (and in a separate incident, had the geyser burst) leading to my landlord’s cut-rate plumbers tearing open half the walls in my home trying to find the leak. I’ve studied for, and written, three exams, and I have worked on reports for my astronomy course (final one is now three weeks overdue, but only a few hours from completion), and the observatory sessions for that course begin next week. I’ve been cooking, cleaning, feeding, washing, making emergency trips to doctors and pharmacies, and on top of all that my leave ended and I’m back at work full time.
I’ve been busy, is what I’m trying to say.
Still, no excuses. Depending on when I manage to submit that final assignment, I will either push glass tonight, or tomorrow. You can hold me to that.
