8:42am:  Just a quick note -- the firing was thankfully uneventful. Dude took it like an adult, which was a relief to all of us. And it's amazing how much better the office vibe is now. It's nice to be on a team where everyone has their stuff to do, does it well and supports one another. Not that I'm going to start putting off retirement, but it certainly makes coming to work more fun.
And now it's just the cleanup -- because fired dude had admin privileges to everything, all passwords need to be changed. We're talking probably over a hundred places. And even then, we're not sure what we're forgetting about. It'll be quite the process.

It looks like storms all day again today so my plan is to force myself to do more than 30 min on the trainer and then maybe even dust off my treadmill and do a power walk.  That might be a little ambitious to think I'll do all that but here's hoping!
So, my kitchen is finally done - woot!  EXCEPT.. on Monday night, I got home from the power run at 8pm which is LATE for me to eat dinner, but I was so excited about being able to cook that I decided to make spaghetti.  I put one pan on the stove to brown the meat and then put water in another pot to boil for the pasta.  I was able to brown the meat, but realized the water was not anywhere close to boiling.  Then I noticed that the red indicator lights on the stove were off, and sure enough, the burners weren't hot anymore.  I turned it off/on again, but still nothing.  Are you kidding me?!  I ended up semi-cooking the pasta in the microwave and still was able to enjoy dinner, but geez.  The[...]

Last night I caught up on the final edition of the Bachelorette and I know everyone wants to know my thoughts on this. Through it all the "experience was amazing", and no one would "change any of it".  Blah, blah, blah. It actually was pretty anticlimatic.  I picked Shawn to be the winner, and I was right.  How can you go wrong choosing the guy that resembles Ryan Gosling?  And Kaitlyn seemed to be so happy, so how can she go wrong?  And the word of the night was "amazing" so as you can guess, I did my liver wrong!  And my next prediction is that they will be broken up within 6 months, since that is the current shelf life of reality dating relationships.  I hope that is not true, as I really do like a good love story and would like to see the world be happier.  Let's face it, the world could always use more love.
The ironic part of the show is how the relationship of 2 of the contestants was played up more than the "love story".  Heck, o[...]

Well, the good news is that the cat is ok. He appears to be suffering from bouts of vertigo - remnants of the middle ear infection. The bad news is that when we got home from the cat hospital, we had to go to the hospital with the mil because she fell and hit her head. This happened the prior evening and even though we emailed back and forth several times, she never mentioned it. She called a friend to help her run some errands and the friend ended up taking her to urgent care who transferred her to the Emergency Room. She should be fine, but she's 89 years old and just generally starting to fail. I think it's time we put our foot down and make her get someone in to stay with her or move her someplace smaller. There is so much work to be done on this farm that you can't live here without worrying about it. I think she'd be happier in a small apartment where she can relax and spend time with friends and not worry about how to get the pool chemicals right or the acres of grass mo[...]

Got a TON done yesterday, and also had a ton of fun with the kiddos in the process, so that was good. Dealt with a bunch of art business, shipped a bunch of stuff, got all my waivers and concussion training done so I'm insured to coach the high school mtb team. Hadn't worked out by 9:30 pm and I was getting all riled up about a shipping issue I'm having with a gallery that has one of my big paintings, so I went down to the studio and did a bit of yoga to calm down. Just what I needed! It's been way too long since I did any yoga - I always forget how much I love it. Now that I'm back on the Cat I training plan it has me doing two days of strength, and I'd like to make that one day of yoga and one day of lifting and stick with it. I've been so worried about getting hours in on the bike  that I haven't done much else...
1:00 pm - so, I was all riled up last night because a gallery in FL had lost the prepaid return shipping label I sent with a big painting to a show, and UPS would[...]
