I got the news today that except for one task that is dependent on warm weather, we are done in Santa Cruz, and I will be back in the office on Monday. We're letting one of the junior scientists stay on site for next week, and I will get to be home.
Allowing for the week I took of vacation this will have been 5 1/2 months working in Santa Cruz.
I'll probably be coming down for some other work in a month or so, but it shouldn't take longer than a week to perform.
YAY! I'm coming home!
