Self High-Five! 15-Minutes; 2012 Tax Returns

Self-High-Five!  I got my butt out of bed at 5a and found myself spinning at 5:45a and I’m proud of it.  I even took a picture of the moment to revel in.  My spin instructor said something very compelling this morning as we were cooling down…she said, “take 15 minutes today to be quiet and still and if you’re too busy to take 15 minutes for yourself then be sure to take 30 minutes.”  I took 15 minutes this morning after my workout…in the sauna. I feel very good today even though my wife called to inform me the dog took four big dumps on the upstairs carpet.  Oh well.


My Market Watch:  Pricing is 0.250 better than yesterday presumably because investors are taking gains out of stocks and investing in bonds.  Other than that the market is flat.  As of now the 30-year Fannie bond is up +31bps on the day and level since rates were published this morning….

My Schedule:  I have a meeting at 10:30a and a tentative meeting this afternoon at 3:30p in Carlsbad.  If you recall, I rarely answer my phone before 10:30a as I use this time to catch up on the previous day’s business and prepare the remainder of the day….
