End-of-the-Month Highlights Day

    • Went to Taylorstown for the traditional 4th, complete with thunderstorm, on W 7/4.

    • Celebrated Maia's first birthday with grandparents on F 7/6, then went out for a beer flight at Ocelot Brewing followed by frozen custard.

    • Tried hiking with Maia in Algonkian and got destroyed by mosquitos on S 7/7. Had the Jacksons over for dinner and VR in the evening.

    • Took Maia to visit the Uri grandparents on H 7/12.

    • Visited with Ben, Andrea, and Amelia at the Farmer's Market on S 7/14. Had Aaron, Vanessa, and Jax over for a kiddie pool party in the evening.

    • Rebecca had an unexpected day off on W 7/18. Maia visited her at her yoga studio, then we had dinner at O'Faolain's after the sad discovery that Cheng's had gone out of business.

    • Visited the Uri grandparents with Maia on H 7/19 and walked around Holmes Run.

    • Had another yoga visit - dinner date with the family on F 7/20 (Miller's).

    • Went to Anya and Matt's baby shower in Purcelville on S 7/21.

  • Projects
    • Got the last of my AWS certs for the next two or three years on S 7/8.

    • Transferred from the Mission Solutions - Entity Analytics division to the Corporate Business Development division on T 7/10. I'm officially a corporate stooge now.

    • Reorganized the kitchen cabinets for maximum efficiency on S 7/15.

    • Updated my resume to be database-driven instead of a flat file so I don't have to redeploy the URI! Zone every time I earn another AWS cert.

  • Consumerism
    • Upgraded the VR rig to a GTX 1080 after a brief period of weak graphics cards following the lightning storm debacle. Played a mix of Beat Saber, Moss, Diablo 3, and Rise of the Tomb Raider this month.

    • No new music or TV shows of note this month.

July's Final Grade: B, slow and steady wins the race
