100 Mile Onewheel Pint Review

In May, I finally did it. After a year and a half of deliberation, I bought a Onewheel Pint. While I do enjoy occasional mountain bike rides, and running on a semi-regular basis, I am neither an extreme sports enthusiast nor an athlete. As a frugal, 40 year old parent of 2 elementary-age kiddos, I also find it hard to justify spending money on myself these days, especially for things I don’t need. Do any of these factors make me regret my decision? Not at all!

Eighteenth Anniversary

Eighteenth

I feel like I say this every year, but it’s hard to wrap my head around the fact that Amy and I said “I do” 18 years ago. Our anniversaries seem to come by faster and faster, but there’s nobody else I’d rather be on this adventure with.

Open Floor Surgery

So relieved! About a month ago, our AC drain line backed up, the shutoff failed, and quite a bit of water leaked into our return vent. I thought I caught it in time and vacuumed up the water. A week or so later, the floors in the hall and living room started buckling. That laminate flooring runs through most of the house. It’s not available anymore and we only had a few salvage pieces from when we renovated the kitchen.

PCTY UX Team

Be Unbeatable Together

After a run of almost 3 years, this is my final day as at Paylocity. As I was chatting with one of my squads about the transition last week, someone noted that I’ve always been the team optimist. To avoid getting choked up, I asked, “Do you know what the plural of y’all is?” I knew that nobody in that group was from the South, so I let the pause linger for a moment and then replied, “I’m going to miss all y’all.”

Poolside Office Shed Interior

Office Shed Budget Breakdown

It’s been over a month now since I moved my desk from the master bedroom, into our new office shed in the back yard. I’ve been dragging my feet on this wrap up post as, well, there are still a few details left to wrap up. Even without transom window trim, decking in front of the sliding glass door, or a rear gutter though, having 160 sqft of detached office/living space for our family of 4 has been a game changer.
