Weekly review: Week ending September 16, 2011

This week felt slower than normal. Looking back, though, I can see that it was pretty packed. My sense of time is a little off, I guess. School has started, so we’ve been helping J- with her homework. Between that and going to work more often so that I can pair program or go to meetings, things have been busy.
