We adopted an older kitty 5 days ago, today when I got home he ran to greet me as soon as I came in the house, then napped on my lap for an hour.  He's such a sweet kitty!

Listening to our kids giggle and wrestle. Siblings that get along and are friends! My sibling and I did/do not.

That DH finally could drive 5,5 hours in our car again all by himself. He hasn't been able to keep his leg in that position for a longer period of time, because of an injury. It looks like his injury has greatly improved since this spring.

I just got offered a promotion to Director and turned it down.  The pay rise was not life altering money for having to deal with more political BS in my public sector position.  I have had my turn around the management merry go round in the private sector, I be done with that.  Not to mention that my department has some long time running HR issues that previous Directors have not addressed. 

The Executive Director was surprised, but told me he understood when I explained that I didn't think my personality was a great match for internal politics and I, and my clients, are much better off having me out there doing the frontline work.  I am really good at my current job, the only time I am unhappy with it is when dealing with polital BS, which I am sheltered from when doing the actual value added work. 

He then went on to tell me that his next option is someone who isn't quite right for the job (our Director needs to be client facing), and to top it off, he is going to retire in 2-3 years so may not want to make such a big career switch.  I quietly sat there and giggled to myself....he has no clue of my life plans.

My three year old Delta kitchen faucet started leaking this morning... Called customer support, sent a few pics, and a new faucet is on the way! Went from $150 repair to free! I think I will be using delta faucets from now on!!!

Great news, @Linda_Norway.

My favourite running path takes me past the local fire brigade.

I ended up on that street this afternoon as the firies were finishing a training run, so I ran with them till they collapsed on the lawn outside the fire station and proceeded to bellow encouraging things at me. :D

Had a great short run and hit a big NW milestone, both in the span of an hour.

@marty998 should make a living as a life coach. :D

Yesterday the surgeon said DH has healed up really well from a bad accident he had in the fall.  DH still has a few more months of PT in front of him, but things are looking great for a full recovery.

@mustachepungoeshere oh fuck lord no... I don't think I could do that at all!

Ok I might have texted "buy shares" several million times, but that is the extent of my coaching ability!

You don't give yourself nearly enough credit.

But ok, I'll just hog all your wisdom then. :P

Yesterday, I was jazzed after my beautiful bike ride on a warmish sunny day. I basked in the sun for a few minutes before I went into work. When I left work, I realized that I had forgotten to lock my bike up. It was just leaning there on the rack on a busy urban street. How lucky am I? Thanks, universe!

They will do that even if it is in a house you purchase (i.e. you were not the direct faucet buyer). We use Delta in all our rentals for this very reason.

When I was dating DH, my mom asked him to look at the faucet in her new-ish house. It was a Delta, so DH knew what to do. Next trip, he installed the brand-new faucet that Delta had sent. He scored big points with his soon-to-be new MIL. It's the little things in life, lol!

Whoops! I forgot I came to post that what made our day is that our grandbaby and her mommy just flew in for a 6-day visit. Whoopee! We thought they were only coming for four days. Plus, she scored a heck of a deal on airfare. Crazy good deal. Love that girl!

The dog we're dogsitting is WONDERFUL. I was getting gun shy about the whole endeavor- after a run of great dogs, I had some seriously crappy visits, and was considering dropping it as a side hustle. We're back to lovely dog visits though, which is both inspiring and good for my heart- I miss dog cuddles since our Old Miss Dog passed away.

Progress on a engine replacement in the family car with the help of my son yesterday. FINALLY had time off, decent weather and son was available. Still more hours of work ahead but progress feels good. Organized some of the garage afterwards.

Also found a tree service to take down some tall trees for a reasonable price. One has rot at the base, the other two are huge and could come down on the house in a storm. Plenty of other trees remain. We love our trees - shade, privacy and all that. Hate to remove any at all.

We took another load of random stuff to Goodwill over the weekend. The "purge" continues. ;)

The house really got cluttered along the way. Sort of snuck up on us over the years.
