Since it was Father’s day this weekend, and my own is across the country, I spent the weekend with Sydney and her family instead. It was mostly a relaxing weekend so I don’t have too many crazy updates. I tried recently working out in the mornings before leaving for work and so far have positive things to say about it. I come to work more energized and it lets me reclaim some time that is usually spent with me half-awake listening to street noise before getting out of bed.
Anyway, here are the links:
