Monday morning

I got to sleep in a little because I was working from home this morning. I woke up around 6:30, when Zeke got sick on my bed. Turned out he was fine, just the usual cat getting sick, but I get anxious whenever he does this because of problems he’s had in the past. He was happy 5 minutes later so I didn’t have much to worry about.

I started working at 7 AM and worked fairly steadily until just before 11 AM, when Dad and I headed to the Metro station. We took the train down to L’Enfant, where we said goodbye. Dad headed out to Dulles and I headed into work. The next time Dad is out is one week before I move and the house should be all packed up at that point.

My plan is to try and squeeze in an arm and shoulder workout some time today, if I can. I also need to mow the front yard and will try and do that after work. And writing? I can’t seem to find the time lately, but I am trying.
