End-of-the-Month Highlights Day

A few photos have been added to the Life, 2017 album. Google Photos sucks.

  • Events
    • Got my first speeding ticket in about seven years driving down to work in Fairfax on T 1/31.

    • Had Sara over for grilled salmon and the Appalachian Trail game on F 2/3.

    • Spent a weekend in Sperryville, with a hike of Little Devil's Stairs, a visit to the Aleworks, and dinner at the Schoolhouse Pub on S 2/4.

    • Watched the first half of the Super Bowl then turned it off with cataclysmic effect on our assumptions on S 2/5. (Just like the election!)

    • Had dinner and an appalling sour beer that wasn't advertised as sour at Mellow Mushroom on T 2/7.

    • Met up with Michelle and Sara for comfort noodle food at Singh Thai on Lake Anne on S 2/12.

    • Had comfort American Chinese food (followed by Sweetfrog) on F 2/17.

    • Had Rebecca's parents over for lunch and played with Tom's new slingshot on an unseasonably warm S 2/18.

    • Met with our new doula at Cafein on S 2/19.

    • Had the 20 week ultrasound (2 weeks late) on W 2/22.

    • Went to my parent's house for an oil change and to celebrate my dad's birthday, and also to reveal that we're having a GIRL, on S 2/25.

    • Did our taxes and marveled at obscene savings on S 2/26.

  • Projects
    • Averaging 60 hours per week at work, but only driving the death commute to Fairfax once a week.

    • Fixed a deathtrap outlet that shorted out whenever Rebecca leaned against the wall, as well as bare spots where Booty destroyed the carpet trying to get into the bedroom when we kick her annoying ass out.

  • Consumerism
    • Got to level 528 in Overwatch, with 540 hours played and a 51.1% winrate.

    • May have purchased something wholly unnecessary but very cool after tax day reinforced how much we have in savings.

    • No new music to speak of this month, but still enjoying a Bliss n' ESO station on Pandora.

    • No amazing shows this month, but waded through yet another season of Game of Thrones.

February's Final Grade: B, A mix of work any play, possibly with a little too much work. Rebecca's feeling better!
