Day 146 of 1000
I have worked in my new job for a month now. It is (and will be) a crazy life for the next few months. We live a three hour drive from the main office, so I only go there two days per week. The company is a sales driven company so much of my work is in support of their efforts. There is a person in charge of the machine vision sales support, but they need me to travel with the each of the sales guys for a day or two to get to know them. That is why my life will be fairly crazy through the rest of the winter and into the spring. We have already started to identify some bigger projects that will require development time in the office, so I can see a light at the end of the tunnel.
In the meantime, the kids and Lorena are blasting away at school. We got some great new in that regard on Friday. I will just repost Lorena’s Facebook entry here:
Well, I tried to decide whether or not to post this, but we are very happy for Christian right now. This semester he has a very heavy academic load (Differential Equations, Calculus based Physics II, Linear Algebra, and two other classes). It is a struggle to take such heavy classes, but we were encouraged today when we received the following letter:
As for the weight loss program, I am STILL on it, struggling mightily. Between taking Lorena out for a birthday dinner, taking customers to lunch and eating on the road, I have some challenges, but I got in a good workout with Christian yesterday and found a gym in the hotel where I stay when I am at the home office, so I am sticking to the program and will post weights again on Wednesday!
Finally, Christian and I meet Andrew and François in the Biological and Agricultural Engineering lab at NCSU Saturday morning for the first time in several months. There is some exciting opportunities at GaugeCam–more about that later.
