July 5th, 2011



I'm in Newton, KS on an unscheduled trip. After resting all weekend recovering from my 72-hour week, I'll have been awake 28-hours prior to starting my 12-hour day.


I was planning on working remotely the first part of this week, but it looks like I'll be converting my time to bereavement leave sometime in the next 12-24 hours.

My wife and her cousin are on watch, augmenting those who stood before us. It was a six-hour whirlwind trip of coffee. My wonderful parents drove to Anna to retrieve the children allowing my wife and her cousin the freedom of movement to focus on their paternal grandmother.

Mennonites abound.
