It’s a last little area that needs some drywall. And ultimately won’t be seen all that much, since the furnace will be right in front of it.
It’s been quite the week. Right after our road trip, work became the thing to focus on and it’s all felt pretty non-stop for a while. I spent a lot of yesterday going over and posting photos, which was nice. But not overly relaxing. That said, it’s something I wanted to do and I’m glad I’ve gotten a bit more…
Spent a (really) long day today getting photos posted up, and our trip recapped. We visited a lot of places, and I got a lot of fun photos/stories to share. Take a look:
You’re not going to believe this: we got second place!
L to R it’s Zohair, Shyamal, Yibo (our intern), me, and Anjana. We’re holding a placeholder trophy, as the real one is getting shipped to us from NY.
Overall, there were 75 projects shared during the Semi-Finals. As we were waiting for our turn, I realized the WiFi was totally slow in the room, due to all the other folks who had their laptops going nearby. And so the idea of a “real time demo” kind of went out the door.
Most days, I can feel it the moment I get up from my seat to exit the Metra. I get tired in the afternoon sometimes, but this week… the tiredness has set in almost from the very start of the morning.
The work week has kicked in, and things are just a bit busier than usual. The day was pretty slow for me, actually. But near the end of the day, things kicked up a notch. And ended up being a busy night. More photos and a trip recap soon.
Yesterday was a long drive. Liz offered to take over at several points, but I eventually got into a zone where I felt fine just pushing ahead. And ended up doing most of the 7+ hour drive on my own.
Whirlwind weekend. We got back home around 8PM or so, which was nice – but were utterly, utterly wiped out.
I got to explain to her what this was, and why we were all freaking out about seeing it. And the woman was pretty interested in hearing about the history of the jug, and what it actually was.
On our way to the next location. This made for a very fun and stressful trek, as we were heading towards the trouble.
After buying the item, she arranged for us to pick it up (a few months later) from the seller in Kansas City. And so we took Thursday/Friday off of work, rented an SUV, and hopped in the car.
Running around, getting ready for our weekend away. Playing a bit of catch-up here with the blog, but the photos from the next few days should hopefully make up for it.
Previously, Bob had gotten a new wall set up in the dining room – replacing what used to be there with something newer and sturdier. He got most of the studs in, but there were a few remaining that Liz and I attended to today.
Woke up pretty early, and got on the road around 6:00 AM. While there wasn’t any rain in the forecast, the whole day looked pretty overcast. And in the morning, there was a significant fog all the way as I was heading East through Indiana.
