If you have free time and want to learn some new skills for a job Udacity is currently free for 30 days.

The boss just randomly scheduled me for a couple vacation days next week.

Me: "Wait, but that's not 40 hours for the week."

Them: "You're the first person who's ever complained about being offered time off."

I kinda don't really have the vacation days this year, but since I just moved I've still got a good bit of organizing and unpacking to do. Although I guess 'explore the town' is out of the question.

Day 26: I caved and dressed my son in his Halloween costume this morning, per his request. Just don’t care.

I have been trying to get outside, for at least a walk around the block, every day.

I'm lucky enough to still be full-time-employed, so I do work 8 hours a day, albeit from home.

I've been doing yoga, and a foam roller routine almost daily, and I've learned three things:
1) My shoulders are weak as heck.
2) My hamstrings are about a foot too short
3) My calves are actually made of concrete.

I have been doing a lot of yard work. Being in Alabama, this period has coordinated perfectly with the spring weather. So lots of landscaping and projects we wanted to do have been expedited with the extra time at home. Normally the wife would have the weekends booked with kid activities. Patching and staining the deck this weekend hopefully.

Watching a 1 year old. Playing online poker with friends and some video games late into the night. Oh yea, setting up lessons and grading too.

No Yoga, but my wife teaches a strong body class (geared to older adults) as part of her duties as a physical therapy asst. She has been "making" me do it 3 times a week. I shared with her the three things you have learned. She had a good laugh - they are the same things I have been complaining about.

The thing is, I'm in decent shape. I bike often, I play ultimate frisbee. I've just never been flexible and I've been overweight for 15 years.

I’ve been working from home all week, but today is my first day with my wife and 3-year-old son also home. I’ll be working 4 am - Noon, while my wife works Noon - 8 pm. Whoever is not working is in charge of the kid. This will not be easy. A tiny bright spot is we’ll save $220/week on day care, but I worry about the day care staff not getting paid.

$220 a week, for one child? [sad]


Try 450-500 here in MN. Needless to say I told my employment to stick it and am now practicing daddy day care (wife had the big job anyway).
