Well this took all of two weeks. Anyone know of a good filler/repair kit for the floors?

Check Home Depot or Lowes, they used to carrier a vinyl floor repair kit with a small bottle that you mixed and brushed it in. You might have just as good of luck with the sealing portion of that kit and trying to get that piece more flush and then going over it with a vinyl sealer which was contained in the same kit. I'm not sure if they carry it anymore or not though but, worth a look.

We had a similar tear. Flagstaff told us to use double sided carpet tape. You can't even tell it ever happened.

I am a journeyman floor layer of over 15 years.
First supplies and tools needed:
Heat gun (or hair drier)
2 or 3 inch Handheld wallpaper roller
Acetone or mineral spirits
Good quality super glue

First you will want to begin by using the heat gun on low setting to while working the wrinkles out of the floor until all edges of the tear lineup with the undamaged portions.
Next have the acetone and rag ready while you apply the super glue directly to the subfloor being careful around the edges not to apply too much for this will cause it to be forced up to the topside of the vinyl.
Once supper glue is applied use the small roller to bond the vinyl and adhesive and also working the wrinkles out. Use the acetone to immediately remove any glue that may permeate thru the turn edges.
All done and this will now be the strongest area of your floor.
Good luck
