Three positive things, day thirteen

So today was the first day back to work after NYC Camp.

The first positive thing was sleep =) I got up a little early this morning to get everything ready for my day back to work, but was so exhausted after the weekend I went back to bed. What was rather wonderful was that my #awesomewife let me sleep in a bit, so I got an extra hour+ of sleep. And then at lunchtime I snook in another fifteen minute nap. After all that I was starting to feel normal again!

Three positive things, day twelve

After being in NYC for two days, it was time to go home.

The first positive thing was our luck with NYC traffic holding up and our drive home only taking 3 1/2 hours - no stops this time. We had some breakfast and were on the road by just after 8am, and made it home by a quarter to twelve. And I got to chat with my friend Matt for the whole drive. So lots of awesome there.

The second positive thing was Kian started doing the "Bob" part from Sandra Boynton's book "Fifteen Animals" to hilarious effect :-D I'll have to put together a video of it.

Three positive things, day eleven

This was my second day in NYC.

The first positive thing was seeing some of my coworkers and people I've gotten to know in the Drupal community over the past few years. Not being able to see your coworkers in person can definitely be a disadvantage of working from home, so it's good to take these opportunities to meet up with them.

Three positive things, day ten

This is a little late because, well, I was a little distracted by it being a pretty exhausting trip.

The first awesome thing was driving (with my friend and coworker Matt Goodwin - the family stayed home) to the UN office in NYC in 4 1/2 hours, including two stops. Yes, only four and half hours. The best case scenario was three hours, forty minutes, so to add two ~20 minute stops and still make it within that time was pretty incredible. Yes, we got up at 3am and were on the road by 4, all so that we could get to NYC for a meeting by 9:30. Needless to say, we made it.

Three positive things, day nine

A quick one because I'm late for bed.

First off, for my trip to NYC Camp tomorrow I was bumped from a standard sized car to an SUV. That'll make the 4+ hour drive (each way) a little more comfortable. And I never knew there could be so many different buttons for controlling the contours and position of the driver's seat ;-)

Secondly, picked up a surprise gift for a friend and her husband who married recently. Of course if they read this first it won't be much of a surprise ;-)

Three positive things, day eight

Three quick things tonight.

First off - yes, kittens. Today we left the basement door open, instead of keeping it closed. Our upstairs cat, Bolt, appreciated this as it meant he could go have some food or use the litter whenever he wanted, instead of waiting for us to open the door to the stairs. The two kittens explored a little bit, but were a little apprehensive of the huge open space so still stayed up stairs, where they spent almost the entire day bouncing around, jumping onto counters, and climbing the curtains. Because kittens.

Three positive things, day six

(This should have been posted last night but I forgot. Doh.)

A work-laden day still had some good stuff.

The first positive thing was - you guessed it - kittens. They were let out for a few hours around lunchtime and again after dinner time. One thing that was particularly cool was watching them play on Kian's small indoor slide - perfectly, disgustingly cute :)
