Another hour volunteering at the food bank today. I wore my gloves the whole time, it's cold and snowing out! Fun group today though. Running volunteer total for the year: 2 hours.
Brian's mom is selling insurance now, and is a new agent for the same company I have for home/auto. I asked her to look into my policies because I continue to be frustrated with how much I'm paying, specifically for auto, and my agent only gives me vague replies. My auto premium has increased 30% in the last 3 years. I know that the cost of everything incrementally increases, but this seems excessive as a driver with NOTHING on my record (no tickets, no accidents, no insurance claims, never late on payment, zilch).
She discovered that I have been paying for the HIGHEST PREMIUM TIER of auto insurance, which is totally and completely unnecessary. She said they only write those policies for very young or very reckless drivers, because it has the vanishing deductible thing and accident forgiveness. But sin[...]

Late day at work, so I got in a few things early. Run-DONE, bike cleaning-DONE, House work-DONE.
Now off to finish making lunch, cleaning the kitchen and getting ready for work.
   
I finished up #todaysrun with a nice cup of coffee. #lifeisgood #asics

I sent an excellently crafted, IMHO, email to some head HR people with the post office and feel like everything is probably going to be ok now. The final response indicated that they are processing him for hire and requested patience as there are lots that need to be done. You hate to annoy or tick people off, but if they want you to respond to an email to schedule training they have to actually send it first. These last three years have really done a number on me. I used to think I functioned pretty well under stress, but I've basically been in a perpetual "survival" mode.
In an attempt to exert some sort of control, I did finish the first floor bedroom painting project except the closet.

Still a little headachey this morning - it doesn't help that little miss F work up around 1:30. I tried to see if she would settle but after about twenty minutes she was still fussing so i took her downstairs to sleep with me. I purposely didn't look at the clock to see what sleep i wasn't getting.  I must've been at least two hours of her rolling around.  Rolling around and playing with my ear. Rolling around and honking my nose. Etc etc etc. 
Plus, for queen size bed, I don't get much of it when sharing with my toddler. AND she takes the pillow. :P Still I love having her little sleepy body beside me. 
Anyway planning lunch yoga today. Maybe that will work some of the crud out of my body. Supper with friends tonight. 
The bike i missed yesterday will have to be on Sunday. It's still do-able.

Feel better today. Not really sure what is going on, but I suspect it's just a bug I'm fighting off. My son has not felt great as of late and I think I may have contracted whatever he had.
