Things of Note:
Well, Ian’s work schedule is changing up once again over at Samsung. I think it will be a good change this time. His new hours will be 10am-9pm, so no needing to go to bed early, or get up early – things neither of us like to do. He expects to sleep much better. And since my sleep schedule (as a work-from-homer) by default generally follows his, I hope to sleep better, too. We do have to move our weekly date night to the weekend, since far too many places close at 9pm on weeknights. But overall I think it will be good. We shall see.
Otherwise, it’s still just a whirlwind of craft show prep over here.
What’s new with you this week?
