Sporadic Tweeting

I've been tweeting a bit at @SpacePrizes.  That might become a low-level substitute for my roundup posts here.  Roundups can take quite a while by the time I've read articles, written a roundup post, and formatted it, but an occasional tweet is a lot easier.  I do have some ideas for non-roundup posts that I may or may not get around to.

I'm still quite busy.  I've done a lot of thinking and research about what I'd like to do if I switch to a new job.  I actively looked into a small number of possibilities, and that went well.  I've even thought about some career ideas somewhat related to space prizes, but those haven't gelled into anything that would feed my family, let alone support my ambition to take daily SS2 flights.  Most of my job ideas are for fairly traditional jobs.  At the moment it looks like I might wind up staying at what I'm doing now after all, but most of my team has already dispersed and that could easily change again.  I've been fixing things up around the house in case I end up needing to move, which has taken lots of time since I've been putting off a lot of house maintenance ever since my first kid arrived on the scene.  I'm also taking a class that might change some career options for me.
