Not much to report around here I guess.

We're into the part of tax season where it feels like it will never end. ARGH! Going to get as much as I can done in the office today, then head outside for an hour or two to cut vines off trees.

Spent most of the day with the mil yesterday. She's already going on and on about Costa Rica. I haven't told her yet, but it's going to be without me. I'm not going through last January again. If her son wants her to go, then he can go stay with her. I get stressed out just thinking about it.

Big push/pull movements.

Not interested in working out at all today so just choose the fewest exercises with the biggest benefits.

Video interview is scheduled with the hiring executive director Friday afternoon. This gal was previously on the other side of the org chart (which is where the other role is that I've applied for) but last week got promoted and switched sides. I really like her, and my boss noted that we would get along really well, but the actual work might not be as exciting as the role on the other side. But I do know that it will be a people leader (one person underneath), which is something I was hesitant to give up with the other role. Hopefully I can get more clarity on the actual job Friday.

I need more of that....but an hour seems too long to do at once (mentally). I kept checking the time count down on my screen....
Observations:  Forward fold poses when your allergies are acting bonkers are not fun.

So I got a new fitness app on my phone to log in my nutrition: Myfitnesspal is the app. I like it a lot, it's easy to use, but it says my goal weight is 108 lbs. So I only have 90 more pounds to lose!

Today was a swim day, however we had big thunderstorms come through early in the morning... once they passed there were still lightning strikes in the area, so it was a no go.

It's only just now Wednesday and I feel like I've been on fire this week with all I've accomplished. Not sure how I got ANOTHER bag of donation clothes ready to go. How is that even possible with all I've already culled? I want to hustle with all the other little stuff (tile trim, washing walls etc) so that I can do a walk-through consultation with the realtor after the carpet is installed next week. Obviously the house painting won't be hardly even started at that point, but if I can have the rest done it'd be stellar.

Zoe has been working on a reno project in her condo. When we got her super sized crate, we also got a super sized fleece crate pad. We kind of knew that she would de-stuff it since it is essentially a huge toy to sleep on (in her mind).  Every time we get her out, I get remove the new pile of stuffing.
The other night, she took this to a new level.  We got her out for a visit/potty run and I removed the excess stuffing, changed her water (we have small bucket hooked to the side of the crate with a caribeener), took out her toys and rotated some out for others, etc.  When she got back into her crate, which she does happily since treats are involved, there was a lot of racket.  Eventually, she settled down. When I got up the next morning, I found that she had flipped her crate pad completely over.  It was exactly in place, just upside down!  Did she get warn and want the not fleece side?  Was she smart enough to know that side would be a bit cooler[...]

Today just changed again. I am now the late guy. And I was the early guy. Yeah, so maybe I'll just look at these guys and smile a bit:
