I decided to try and get up earlier to see how early morning training might go. I got up at 4:50, a half hour earlier than normal. I noticed that my body was not prepared to get up yet, but it did get up and going pretty quickly. My mind was a bit distracted during prayer/scripture.
The ride was supposed to be very easy, so there was no pressure. Everything went well, and aside from a distracted prayer, the rest of my morning routine went smoothly. Will try this again tomorrow and, if it goes well, I will very likely make it the norm for the summer.

6:43am: I did not pass my exam. The exam was nothing like the one I took over the weekend -- it covered features that weren't even available until recently (and - therefore - not covered in the class that I took because the last time the class content was updated was 2 years ago). Again, I came within probably 2-3 questions of passing. 
So, I sent my boss an email about it -- because this does not cover something that is core functionality for my job, I'm not sure that he will want me to pursue taking the test again since it'll cost money for me to do so. I have no opinion in either direction; part of me wants another shot at it because it hurts my ego a little not to have passed it, but the other part of me rationally knows that what I was tested on makes zero difference in how well I can perform my job. 
We'll see what he says. I'm disappointed in myself but know that I did what I could to prepare. More time likely would not have made a difference.
On another note: [...]

I should run today, but hips, IT band and hammies are still a bit sore.  Took the time this morning to do some rehab work on them and maybe after work, or maybe not.  We'll see.

Yesterday was back to work day after a 4 day weekend. In regular back to work day 1 fashion, the excrement and the impeller had become as one. In other words, the crap hit the fan. So, I finally got home late and ate dinner. And logged back into work. And this morning looks the same, although I hope to be able to get my swim in this afternoon. I'll be cutting it quite close because of the BIL's birthday. Like I haven't eaten enough crap since he's been here already.
First video went up last night on my Youtube/Facebook channel. I really like the video editing software I used. Of the 3 I've tested so far, it was the most simple and quick for the type of work I want to do.

12:27 PM: While the vibe at work here is still tragically negative, I will say that since I've changed teams I personally am no longer suffering from an ulcer, eye twitches, acne, or uncontrollable stress sweating. My prior manager had a vendetta for some unknown reason, and she extracted her pound of flesh from me. Things backfired for her, though, because she didn't receive a job offer in the updated work structure so she's without a job as of September. I guess it really doesn't pay to be a jerk.

Hoping to run today. Gus went in to get his boy parts removed so everything is based around how that goes.

Kitchen sink was done today and it's not what we had talked about; think we had a mis communication. He wants me to look again in the morning when it's drier but it won't be solid espresso color, it's speckled and just darker than the counters. I think it will be nice though, I'll post a pic when it's all done.

75% on the grass next to the sidewalk, 25% on the sidewalk. Ran over to 168th & Harrison and back. Apparently our house is situated at a higher elevation than that intersection, which I find to be very suspect...
