I learned to not drill too big a hole when trying to extract a bolt and that sometimes an easy out is not so easy, especially when user error is involved. I learned that I will be replacing the bottom of my switch housing because of my earlier lesson.

This week I learned that I will be taking that jump on July 9th. Plenty of time to get reacquainted before the rough time starts.

I learned that so far this is one hot summer.

And on Tuesday I learned that we're going to be homeless for 27 days in August.
