About time I have something to blog about again.

Drinking makes yard work so much easier.)

I love the end result.  Now we just have to deal with this.

  • Attending events and observing National Engineers Week
  • Having a couple of job interviews
  • Working out at the gym with Alex and learning to lift weights
  • Reading
