    My absence

    I apologize for my lack of participation here lately. With the new baby, and wife back to work, it has been very rough. It is a blessing, but it is also a blessing if i get 4 hours of sleep. I think he is finally settling into the sleep at night groove and hopefully i will get some shop time in now. To everyone waiting for orders, i apologize for the wait, and appreciate your patience. I dont think i have had 3 hours of total shop time in the last 3 months. So i am not dead...brain dead, maybe...but i still live

    Nice to see you back Mike and I definitely know the feeling. Just when we hit that stage where she was sleeping through the night, our little one got a 102+ degree fever that lasted two weeks and the three to four hour night sleeps started again. Have fun with what little time you have.

    Sleep deprivation sucks!!!
    I remember those days.
    Glad you've got a little time to yourself Mike.
    "See... the problem here is that... my little brother, this morning, got his arm caught in the microwave, and uh... my grandmother dropped acid and she freaked out, and hijacked a school bus full of... penguins, so it's kind of a family crisis... so come back later? Great."

    ......if these guys really liked you,
    they would take up a collection to pay for a Nanny.

    me, .....I don't like you that much.
