Personal:

I have five cute kids. And I have some rockin short green racing shorts- I wear them mainly because it embarrasses my wife so much. I like ultimate frisbee, trail running, reading, and cheering for the Denver Broncos!   And I have the absolute best wife in the world.  And I used to run for the now-disbanded national Team Pearl Izumi- Ultra!

65 deg and breezy for frisbee. 18 people showed up- two subs per team. Too many people. I like 10 or 12 best. I played ok. My team won 5-3.

AM nice morning for a run, upper 30's, not too much mud. 8 miles, 8-9 min pace. 3-5 deer, no turkey or people.

Frisbee- a bit cooler, 40 deg and breezy. Field is still muddy in spots. 13 people, my team had sub. My team had 6 people over age 40, other team had 1. We were up 3-2, then we won 5-2. Both teams had some not-smart throws, but they had more. I played fine. Dennis was back after breaking his arm 3 months ago.

AM 23 deg this morning so I finally broke out my running tights. I think I even had a beardsicle for a while. 8 miles. 20+ turkeys, 3 deer.

Layoffs at work again today. 10% of workforce. Several people I work with or who sit near me hit. And likely more to come- they've sent every non-engineer Senior and Executive level employee an offer for voluntary job elimination. If they don't get enough volunteers, more layoffs will follow. I don't know why they let the non-engineers volunteer to leave while doing non-voluntary layoffs for engineers. I don't really want to repeat today.

Lunch- 19 people today so we played 2 fields. Low 40's, overcast, minimal wind. My team was me, Adrian, Tom, Claire, and Kevin, so pretty stacked. We won the first game fairly easily, as I would have expected. I overthrew Tom a few times in the endzone and dropped one hard catch, but otherwise played well. For the championship game, the other team was stacked- Graham, Matt Page, Verdin, Dave, and Tye. They got up 2-1, but then I think they got a bit tired and slowed up, so we scored 4 straight for the win. Our team played well together today with not too many mistakes. 

I woke up at 4:38 am again today. In the past 5 days, I've only slept more than 4 hours once. When I wake up early, my brain is thinking too much and too stressed out about work to get back to sleep. I'm working some very stressful, high visibility, critical projects right now that are all a mess, so it's definitely an adventure.
