Ever since my kids moved across the country three years ago, the Mrs and I have been making semi-annual trips from Royal Oak, Michigan to Phoenix, Arizona. I honestly enjoy seeing my children and, the fact that there are grandkids with them only makes the trips better.
However, it is what some might call bittersweet.
Generally, each trip is about two weeks. It’s long enough to spend quality time with the offspring, but not so long that we become a major bother to them. This is the sweet part.
Yet, these trips also represent about two weeks where I do not have to go to work and have no significant obligations. AND MY SHOP IS ACROSS THE COUNTRY! This would be the bitter part.
Naturally, since I have so much time on my hands, I spend a fair amount of it reading LumberJocks, catching up on other websites and watching tutorial videos.
And I get ideas.
When I get ideas, I want to fiddle with them a bit and experiment. AND MY SHOP IS ACROSS THE COUNTRY!
I could always avoid places like LumberJocks ... Not! So, I find myself making all kinds of notes about things I was to try and things I want to build and end up with an idea backlog. This is the inconvenient part.
I actually have nothing significant to say other than I have too many ideas. And, if you folks wouldn’t mind, would you please stop giving me more while I’m on vacation?
