"What ya been doing ?"
Some questions you hate to answer. Because for the last couple weeks it seems like every time I progress forward a step two steps get added to get to where I need to be. I'm setting here in the office thinking 2 weeks ago the piles of papers were smaller. And I admit I haven't been working at this as hard as I could have, but I think I've been pretty diligent. But like that corollary to Murphy's Law (Stuff expands to fill available space) what needs done expands to fill available time.
Progress on insulating the shop has been minimal this week. Between traveling Monday, catching up with what happened while we were gone Tuesday, running needed errands, going to funerals, going to the FSA office, stopping by a lawyer's office to answer a question (come to think of it, maybe I should have charged him $300 an hour for a consulting fee ...), visiting with my friendly banker, on and on I haven't accomplished near what I wanted. So far my biggest accomplishment was bringing the little semi home from being in the shop.
It had an oil leak on the high pressure pump. Since it runs around 4500 psi, I decided to let Biernbaum's work on it.
But I've only spent $450,000 this week plus change. More on that some other time when all the paperwork is done. For now, Merry Christmas and we'll see you next year.
