    Howdy. This is Bob. The Bob of Bob Blog. This blog contains about five minutes of my thoughts each day. A record. A history. And occasionally worth reading.

    I couldn't sleep at 6:30AM today. I"m one for getting up at 8am. So I fed the cats and decided to wander down to the beach. 3 blocks so I shouldn't make a big deal of the walk. Except I felt so out of shape. I enjoy watching the waves. But today it was low tide and there was a freeway of bugs along the rocks. Taking a few minutes out in the morning to walk or to read makes me remember the times when I didn't just work all the time. It is good. But forces me to wonder what else I might like to be doing with my free time. Dreaming about travel!

    Blogging shouldn't be a chore, something persisting on my todo list until I feel guilty. But today it is. I've tried several times to write but have found an interruption. The basis for this is twofold. 1) Lots of stuff is happening at work that I can't talk about and don't know enough details to know how I feel or what I need to do. I probably couldn't write about it even if I knew enough details. Confusion isn't a strong motivator to communicate with others. 2) I had one of those days were communicating was all I accomplished. A hallway conversation led to passing along knowledge. A hallway conversation led to feeling connected to someone. A hallway converstaion led to a 20 minute discussion, someone getting unstuck on a task, and making me smile.

    Toss that together and I feel drained, no communication is left in me.

    On another note, it looks like we'll finish the refinance paperwork on Friday and close next week. This was one of those obvious things to do: 7.5% to 5.5%. The end result is that we'll have a little more flexibility with cashflow. And while I'm not fond of an impound account, it will help balance out the payments at tax and insurance times. I feel so fortunate with life.
