I'm starting to burn up this year's A/L, which means it's no longer available as a lump sum payout if I were to leave work for some reason. I guess I'll start storing it up again come January.
I went for a "schools" run yesterday and today, which is the same thing as a "hills" run in my town. Yesterday it was a 4-mile run around Mount Daniels School atop the hill on Oak Street, this morning it was a 3-mile run around Timber Lane School atop the hill on West Street. Both places have stairs to run up too.
After today's run, I worked clearing out the basement for a little while, throwing things out. Lookit what I found, a picture from 1986 of a State Trooper holding his oldest child, who has donned his trooper's hat.
Then it was off to the local Starbucks for a cup of java from 9:30-9:45 a.m. I don't speak Starbucks so when I asked for a "small house coffee" they put in my order as a small hot chocolate. I scrutinized everyone's face who came in but nobody I recognized entered.
