Working 6 and 7 days a week, horrible weather, and a wife thats 8 months pregnant has kept me off the water, and indoors more than I would like, but hey, life is about more than paddling sometimes, and you have to take care of whats most important. And I'm looking forward to the adventure of fatherhood more than anything, I hear its really easy :-)
I have gotten outside a couple times for a bit of cross country skiing and snowmobiling. Take what you can and go with it!
