So, yes, I have been in Brazil. A long time ago! And I barely met anybody besides my family. At least that part was successful. I had a good time hanging out with my sister and my niece and nephew. Then I came back missing my friends more than when I left. But I guess that's how it works. I just need to figure out how to go back more often than once every 3+ years.
And how has Seattle been since I've arrived? Quite busy, unfortunately. Work has been a little crazy (7 days a week, many hours a day crazy), but hopefully things will quiet down a little soon (hope is the only thing left for me). Building some really interesting things, but I wished I had more time to be home and work on my projects at home. They now include:
- Finishing my entertainment center phase 1B (it's missing a door that I messed up when I made a hole on it, and I need to fix the drawers that don't open and close very smoothly)
- Work on a replacement alarm clock for the bedroom: I'm very frustrated by not being able to find an alarm clock that has all the features that I want, so I decided to build one.
And, yes, I still have a wife with her projects, like her Turkorah . It's been quite busy in our household.
