Hunkering down.

Sorry folks, on the relative silence. I'm overwhelmed at work. I have been warning Jeremy for a year now, that there would come a time when I would encounter a really difficult period and now I'm in the midst of it. The past 2 nights, I've gotten home well after dinner and just in time to put the kids to bed. I'm estimating about 2-3 months of this hectic work schedule. Can I tell you? By tomorrow I will have worked on 24 patents (7 first actions, 8 amendments, 5 restrictions, 2 attorney interviews, 1 advisory action). Of course, this had to happen over Thanksgiving and Christmas vacations.

A few updates:

Jeremy's having a ball at work. Here's a NYTimes editorial about stuff he's working on. His colleagues are trying to work on the bailout of the automakers. What else? I dunno, but he's really excited and has a lot to do, but thankfully he doesn't have so much to do that he can't be home by 6:15 to meet the kids.

Edda:

We had her IEP meeting, which was both fine and emotional. More on this later.

Vince:

He has a project due tomorrow. He had to make a building. This is how it was last night:

Tonight he put a solar panel on the roof.
