I know we haven't been able to spend much time together lately. It weighs heavy on my heart too. You've watched me come and go, drop a variety of stuff off in your space, and leave nearly as quick as I show up, and you've stayed strong. You haven't uttered one bad word.
I know lately I've spent much more time than usual with pickup truck and laptop. And while I enjoy their company, it's not the same as the time I get to spend with you. Unfortunately it will be a few more weeks until I can again settle into a routine with you.
We will spend some time together this weekend and we'll see what we can accomplish. But until the time where I can fully re-dedicate myself please know I will miss you.
Tell tool chest and workbench I said "Hi" and help them understand this time apart is for the good of all of us. I know the chisels and tenon saw already understand.
Let's just remember to cherish the time we have when we have it.
