This past week was very bittersweet. I knew I'd have to go back to work soon, but of course I didn't want to because of the issues with our son Luke. If you want to follow along with his story check out his blog at babylukeblog.wordpress.com. Overall I'd say his situation has slightly improved but that doesn't meant the rollercoaster has evened out any. One bonus to me being at work is that I'll be writing a lot more consistently which is a nice benefit to my current job. So you can expect to see more content coming out while I'm at work. Another benefit is that it means I'll be having a lot more income coming in which means there's more money to save and invest. I've still been investing over the last few months but at a much slower rate than I normally would be in more certain times.
