Well Its Happened Again Dept: Just when I'm trying to retire and down size, an old client wants to build an addition on to her log home. That plus several "stick" houses, a stock plan sale has kept me busy ALL year. It is stranger than fiction. The Great Recession made us cut our overhead to the bone. (No new machines, no new software, office is now in my home....and all my losses of the GR are being brought forward against today's profits) so I get to keep more of the money I earn.
Except for Burning Man (what an experience), I have to put off my small vacation until the 3rd week of October. Life is (well I was going to say "tuff"...but it is really) pretty grand!
I truly hope your life is proceeding well with few bumps and bruises and great deal of joy.
