I'm still here!

No, I haven't dropped off the face of the earth. Yet.

I haven't been posting because I've been ultra-busy. The one-armed-paper-hanger type of busy.

My wife had shoulder surgery on February 5th. Repairing a torn anterior and posterior labrum, and shaving back an impingement. Lots going on there. She's on the mend now.

But she also can't lift much. Especially with the use, for the most part, of only one arm. Makes it a little difficult to take care of a 6-month-old. So I too the rest of February off work. Well, off going to my office to work.

Yeah, not only am I taking care of the little one and trying to do most everything around the house (dish washing, laundry, cleaning, etc), I'm also trying to work-from-home as much as I can. Saves some sick-leave time, and helps keep the group workflow up.

Add to that some family issues (upon which I'll elaborate in a post very soon), and it makes for a full schedule.

And in my spare time... What spare time?

I have been getting some rides in, averaging almost an hour a day. On the trainer. Most often after every one else has gone to bed.

And I've gotten some minor framebuilding tasks done. Tubes are ordered, designs are 90% done (chainstays are still pending with the need to get the wheels sorted and the whole layout drawn up before I bend and cut them). Miters templates are printed and placed, and the tubes are cut to length.

But writing has been low on the priority list the last couple weeks. Sorry.
