Day 286: Kindergarten, startup stuff, uniform shopping

This morning was a bit cooler on account of it being overcast, so I managed to leap out of bed and go for a run. I realised afterwards that it's been quite a while since I've gone for one. I mustered 7 km this morning before blowing up, mostly due to a lack of willpower to keep slogging on in the heat. I was happy I lasted that long.

I made up for last week's lost progress on my real estate licence course and knocked over a unit and put it in the mail. I managed to get through the first two parts of another unit, and hopefully I can finish off the third part and get it into the mail tomorrow.

I also did some productive procrastinating and may actually have a successful backup of daedalus currently getting written out to virtual "tape". Who would have thought the TCP keepalive interval would be the cause of all the problems?

I biked to Kindergarten to pick Zoe up, and then we went to the post office. I thought we should get Zoe's school uniform shopping out of the way, so under protest, we headed to the uniform shop on the way home from the post office.

For some reason, Zoe hadn't been excited about the prospect of going uniform shopping. Every time I'd asked her if she wanted to do it, she'd declined. Once we got into the store and were trying on uniforms though, she wanted to wear one home on the bike. So that's the uniform shopping out of the way, we just have to get some shoes, which I'll leave until the last minute in case her feet grow.

After we got home, Zoe watched some TV and I had a crack at making a herb and garlic pull-apart that I've been wanting to try and make for a while. It's smelling delicious in the oven as I write.

I'm looking forward to closing out the day with a yoga class.
