The Planets Have Aligned.

Finally.

After months of waiting, knowing nothing about so many aspects of my near-future life, all the information is coming together.

ManThing officially got his promotion today, complete with a stout raise.
I got my surgery date; in turn, we now know when we are going to move.
Chez Monkey is sold, and our mortgage principal balance is zero dollars.

I feel like I can finally breathe again (though it’s a little tough at the moment, because my belly is quite full of lamb from our celebratory dinner).

At work, I have made the conscientious decision to quit drawing with “smart walls,” start drawing with just lines, and to hell with the consequences. It is quite liberating. I had forgotten how good it feels to just draw; instead of trying to assemble a 3-D model using components that I don’t really know how to manipulate- it was like an octopus wearing high heels while trying to climb a mountain.

I feel so much better. I hope it will last. :)

Congratulations, Ms. Monkey on some progress. Hope the hip thing goes well.

As for the 3-d business, correct me if I'm wrong but aren't you don't you do mostly construction drawings? If that is correct I don't see much advantage to using 3-d if it slows you down producing 2d drawings. Sound like another decision made by someone who is not involved in the process.
