After two nights

Not too bad, so far. David's doing pretty well in Jane's absence, and has talked to her on the phone a couple of times. Tomorrow morning takes us past halfway, since she'll be back Thursday afternoon. Grandma and Grandpa are here helping me out until Wednesday (though they stay at the hotel instead of the house - we don't really have room for guests the way things are set up).

Unfortunately, the weather has royally sucked ever since mid-day Saturday. And shows no signs of changing for a few days yet. I was able to get a quick 17-mile bike ride in Saturday morning early - before the weather changed over and Jane went to work. But the chances of getting in my golf round are iffy at best, and I suspect I won't be riding again until the weekend (except maybe if I'm lucky I can hit the exercycle downstairs). It's been incredibly busy for me overall - I originally expected today to be downtime but I worked on accounts until almost 2 this afternoon, and Wednesday now looks pretty full as well. Business for me uses the cistern principle - you need to collect all the rain when it rains, because you never know when it'll rain again. I'll look at trends over the summer and see if by fall maybe a second person is warranted. My suspicion is that by at least years' end it could happen - and it's a problem I hope to face. Though I wouldn't mind staying at a level where I could pay myself well and keep busy.

By the way, I just finished Larry Flynt's book. He may be a redneck, trailer park, white trash pornographer, but he's a great American. Read it, and you'll understand what I mean.
