Prioriti[es/ze]

I’ve rarely been busier or more inter­est­ed in what I’ve been doing late­ly. I was telling Deb­bie the oth­er day that it is nice to have so many var­ied things to do that in my free time all I want to do is read instead of play­ing video games or some­thing else.

We’re still at the heavy lift­ing stage, but I’ve got a good feel­ing about its direc­tion and longevi­ty. Now I just have to get out, con­duct some inter­views, edit them and get them online.

Through­out all of this, Deb­bie has been a champ. I wor­ry that I’m neglect­ing her or my parental duties from time to time, but she said she’d let me know if I was slack­ing in that area. That’s cer­tain­ly the top pri­or­i­ty.
