12:07 – My life has become a steady stream of building science kits, processing orders for them, and shipping them. Not that I’m complaining. I wish it could be like this all year long. Instead, it’s semi-crazy in July, full-on crazy in August and September, and back to semi-crazy in October. Still, as long as we can continue to build enough kits to meet demand, and assuming the current sales trajectory holds up, it looks like we’ll reach my goal for the year in September, if not August. The remainder of the year should allow us to exceed the goal comfortably.

And to think that back around April/May, I was seriously considering starting another book in the DIY science series and designing another kit. As it is, I’ll be hard pressed to get the first batch of forensic science kits ready by the time the book hits the bookstores in about a month. I haven’t even started making up the solutions, of which there are a large number, other than in prototype quantities. As a very smart friend of mine once commented, “We can do anything, but we can’t do everything.”
