So Friday was a hellofaday as my wife and I welcomed our second child into this world, little baby Rhea! (Ray-Ah) Yes, I’d known she was on the way for quite some time now, but you’re never prepared for the phone call that today is that day. I went into work early on Friday, March 3rd around 6:45 AM to help with a big job and at 8:10 the call came that it was time to go to the hospital and as it turned out, it wasn’t a moment too soon. We arrived at the hospital (which is an hour away from where we live) and were officially admitted at 10:07 AM. At 10:41 AM she was in my wife’s arms on the bed….a window of 31 minutes. I mean god damn…this baby girl wasn’t fuckin’ around.
All things considered, this was as good as anyone could have hoped for and we are again blessed with another beautiful and healthy baby which makes all these hobby creations seem the pale in comparison.
That said…yes, what’s going on with the projects? Well for the last several months now I’ve been working on an N64p commission which is finally finishing up. This took way longer and had more problems than any other I’ve done to date because I tried utilizing my new Form 2 to test it’s limits. I’ll never again do a 3D printed portable the way I did this one, but the learning curve was worth it and once this project is closed up and completed, it’ll still be one of my finer works and for good reason.
But more on that when it comes time and on the subject of time…suddenly now I’m realizing I’m going to have next to none with two kids and a full time job. Simply put, once these couple of projects finish up, I’m not going to have the time to do any full-blown, from-the-ground-up portables anymore…not that I’ve done anything new in quite some time anyway. But I’ll be changing the commissions page a bit to gear toward the N64 almost exclusively as I’ve got pretty much everything already down to turn them around fairly quickly now which for awhile will be the only thing I have time to really work with.
So yes, I’ve got a couple fun projects that will be released soon and hopefully another started before the end of the month. Lotsa work to do between then but at least I can say I’m not bored!
