December 29th: Brett has worked every day since Christmas. He had a very late night on Friday, setting up the network, and it’s going to be another late one tonight. He is thankful to have some extra help from a part-time former co-worker who is familiar with the systems and is available for big projects like this. Things were going pretty smoothly, but some electrical issues were discovered this afternoon. Moves are complicated already, but they are also dealing with new construction problems. Temporary chaos.
The last few days have been weird at home with Brett gone so much. We are also off our normal routine. When Brett went back to the office this evening, after being home a quick hour to eat dinner, Hannah crawled on the couch next to me and cried. It was past her bedtime, and she was missing Daddy. So we ate up the pumpkin cheesecake in the fridge.
Then bedtime for real.
These were supposed to be vacation days for Brett, but his bosses said he can carry them over to next year along with the other people who have been working extra for the move. We’re all looking forward to the days off mid-week coming up. Hopefully everything will be in good shape by then for him to have a good break!
