When is Sunday not a day of rest? Whenever I'm scheduled to work. Like today. Will it be busy? Well, it's difficult to say. We are moving into carpet season, however, prices are what I would call exorbitant. I was talking to a single father yesterday who wants to carpet his basement. I did an estimate for him and he was like "woah!" At that point I should have brought up our credit card, where he'd get 0% financing for 18 months. I didn't because he's a single parent. If he would have asked about our card, I'd have obliged him, but that's a decision he would need to make on his own. He knows his finances, I don't.
We hired a new associate who rides mountain bike. I don't mind walking mountain trails, but riding them? Not for me. He was telling me how he just bought some sort of shock absorber for his seat. Knowing an opportunity when I see one, I asked him if he wanted a bike stand to do repairs and tune-ups (I bought one a few years back and used it once) and he said sure. So, I got my stand up from the basement, dusted it off, and will hand it over to him this afternoon.
The Washington Post had a really interesting article about walking. According to medical researches walking just 11 minutes a day will supposedly help you live longer. While I found it interesting, I couldn't help but wonder if it was written for those who only exercise is to walk from their bedroom to their living room, with occasional forays into the kitchen to nuke a taquito or two. By saying this, I'm not specifically targeting senior citizens, but for quite a number of them this seems to be the extent of their daily workout.
A diminished CPAC is over. LibsofTikTok spoke. Her audience was non-existent.
