Crazy busy

I've got a new job which is mostly field-work, meaning I am away from home a lot. Right now I'm not too terribly far away, so I'm home at least one day per week, but the rest of the time I'm in a hotel far away. This is radically affecting my productive free time. I spend my time at home trying to catch up on house-work.
I was going to do blog entries on all of the DIY stuff I was doing, but I kept either forgetting the camera, or not wanting to have the camera out when I was up to my armpits in thinset or brick mortar, so that never materialized. It may yet happen when I'm doing stuff on my own house. Maybe.
I have a project in mind for a small kitchen island, but so far all I've been able to do is design it. I haven't been able to start on anything 'real' yet. My shop is a wreck because I had to figure out what tools I needed for this new job, and stuff got dumped everywhere while I tried to figure out what portion of my ton-plus of metalworking tools I needed to have with me.
It's very frustrating doing a job while knowing that you have the perfect tool for the job and it's at home, hours away from you.

Anyway, that's pretty much what's going on with me these days. Hopefully I can get back into the blogging, but right now I'm a lost cause.

Mike, I haven't seen you on Canadian Woodworking for ages. Where have you disappeared to?
