My dogs let me sleep in an extra hour this morning. Sometimes I think they understand me more than I give them credit for.

I got this email this morning. Looks like I can finally quit my job! 😜

Where has chezmoi been all my life? I am using it now to manage my dotfiles between all my machines which use nixos.

Sadly, this first week back in the office has me working on Saturday. I now miss Germany!
