Hi there! How was your weekend?
I pretty much wasted my Saturday attempting to installate the elliptical by myself. After about an hour of screwing and unscrewing the same bolts I got frustrated with it and buried it in my upstairs closet. Here's hoping I forget all about it.
Spent some much-needed quality time with the family. Went to the library so the girls could pick out some books for summer reading. After the girls went to sleep I watched The Big Short with the wife. She fell asleep halfway though. I thought it was interesting.
Sunday I had the house to myself for the first time in two months. Its very likely I would have checked in with MFG - but the Baseball Hall Of Fame induction ceremony saved me. Mike Piazza's speech was amazing. Ken Griffey Jr. was one hell of a ballplayer, maybe the best in my lifetime. But he is just not a good public speaker. Which is refreshing in a way.
After that ended I did some yard work, cleaned the living room, and watched a couple Taryn videos. One of these days I'm gonna figure out how to watch YouTube on my TV so I can bingewatch her channel. Maybe on my birthday :-)
I was just about to make my blogroll rounds when my mom called to inform me that my sister is moving back to Florida. That's kind of a bummer, I guess. I'm not particularly close with her. My mom is planning a going away party for her when I visit CT in August. And we might be going to Mystic, maybe. It was an idea I had months ago, and it's been on-again, off-again ever since. Now it sounds like it's on again. But there's still time for the plans to fall through (again).
Also my wife has a smartphone now. I have no need for one, but it might come in handy if we do go to Mystic.
