Five things that made me happy this week:
- Sleeping with the windows open because this weather!
- Going out for lunch even though there are healthier leftovers in the fridge #rulebreaker
- Adding more finishing touches to our bedroom
- Getting a thank you note from a client
- Realizing I can do a yoga move that I couldn't do last month

The tricky part is that everything is located in the same little place: Work, pleasure, distraction, misbehaving, responding, wasting time, buying, selling, dreaming, focusing ... all options live together, and I can float from one to another with no effort. It is truly amazing. I'm in awe. But it doesn't help me be productive.
REI is closing all their stores on Black Friday and encouraging people to take a hike instead.
