    The older I get, the more I hate when I have to travel for work. Luckily it's few and far between.

    Some markets around here are crazy. Our house went on viewpoint at 11AM and we had multiple offers by 4pm (some people didn’t even come see it)

    I miss travelling for work. It's been a decade now, and at least back then I'd get a paid week or two in another country once or twice a year. Constant travel would in deed suck though.

    Headed to Amsterdam and Germany in the Fall for work travel with likely a stop in Austria. The travel to get there and the travel back sucks, but getting to check out cool places like that once in a while is a plus.

    In a daily step challenge with my brother and sister. You just have to hit 10,000 steps a day for the week. If you miss, the other siblings get to compose an email to our father which you have to copy and paste and send from your own account as if you wrote it yourself. Needless to say, the motivation to hit 10,000 steps has never been higher!

    i don't get why that would motivate you, like what would you say? are you both huge assholes or something or did you have a falling out with your father? Its hard not knowing the history i guess..

    If my siblings were to write an email like:

    Dear Dad - It hurts when I pee. Do you know what that might be? Love, HairyAss

    I would not want to press send on that!

    Yeah, it would be pretty easy for siblings to write embarrassing emails, even if you all have a good relationship. I think it would be motivating!

    Oh, we all have a terrible relationship with our father as well so it makes it even uglier.

    Dear son, that's what you get for having loose morals, too many drinks, and $50 burning a hole in your pocket in Tijuana. Love, Dad.

    Seattle ranked #1 for construction cranes in the US for 3rd year in a row. Currently 65 in operation.

    Lots of work going on in Seattle the last few years.

    In related news, there are three tower cranes currently set up on the job site I'm working on in Calgary. Fourth goes up next month.

    You didn't have to go to emerg for Zithromax. Walk-in clinic would've been quicker.

    Every weekend, my boyfriend and I go on hikes. I found this awesome app called AllTrails if anyone else here goes hiking and is always looking for new places to check out!

    Went out to a punk show with a buddy last night. Got WAY messier than I should have. Got home around 2:30, woke up at 7:00, drank half a Gatorade, showered, barfed up said Gatorade, and went back to bed.

    Got back up around 9:00, rolled into work at 10:00am, and grabbed an iced cap from Tims on my way hoping it would both caffeinate and hydrate me back to life. Drank 2/3 of it, and just barfed it back up. Currently 11:30 and I'm STRONGLY considering going and taking a nap in the truck...

    I'm an effin trainwreck today. Might be too old for this shit... :bowdownro

    Yep. Apparently, the scam has been around for quite a while, but adding in a legitimate password of mine into the mix (an older one I don't use anymore, but still..) made it really huge. The threat of them sending out a video of me jerking off to all my contacts is a massive incentive to follow through.
