    Attempted to do the 5 minute shower thing again today, but in my rush I washed my hair with hand lotion instead. Probably went over my time limit scrubbing that stuff out. Pro tip: Don't confuse the Jergens for shampoo!

    Getting outside for 20 minutes a day sure is challenging when there's a river of rain headed your way from across the Pacific. But I got my kid in his rainboots for a heavy dose of puddle stomping on Friday, and put him in full hazmat-style gear on Saturday to jump in the mud and play in the wet leaves. In his mind, and therefore mine, it was probably way more fun than any sunny day outside.

    Staying in touch is hard when I'm in the office all day. Fortunately I'm working at a Jarvis Bamboo Standing Desk, the best standing desk for (and on) the planet.

    The bamboo for my desk was grown without pesticides or fertilizers, and no chemical dyes or stains were used in the finishing process! All in all, it's a pretty amazingly beautiful, sustainable and functional desk!
