Gah, OH ate my post! Let's do this again a little quicker........

Yay for Friday-Eve! I had a lovely day sitting outside in the sunshine taking all of my zoom meetings. My new outdoor furniture comes in about a week and that will be amazing, but meanwhile this set up is good enough! I had to keep creeping back into the shade to be able to see the screen, but otherwise it was perfect. High 80s and sunny--my idea of a perfect day. A little cooler today, but I should be able to be outside for the majority of the day, again. Yay!

QOTD: Hit me with a favorite quote! This is one I have thought of a lot recently, as we work to distribute hundreds of thousands of meals and tens of thousands of Chromebooks to our Boston Public School Children duding school closure:

"What a nonsensical question this is. Is the glass half full or half empty?

Who cares?!

The right question for warriors is:

Who needs the water and how can we get it to them?

What is the work that needs doing and how can I contribute to making it happen?"

Good morning everyone! It's back to work for me today. I'm moving extra slow though today. Feels like I'm still on vacation time. Yesterday was nice just relaxing at home and preparing for work today. Got caught up on all my emails and boy was there a lot!

My accountability was really good yesterday. Best day I've had since before vacation. Still up 3 pounds though which I'm hoping will start to drop off by sticking to plan and getting back on track.

Congrats for the end of self imposed quarantine. Such a responsible citizen.

Nothing like those guys who went to Hawaii and got caught because they posted the pics on their social media.
