Mattress Topper

Sunday, July 30th, 2017

My wife and I have had our current mattress for a while and while it is still comfortable it needs some help.  We picked up a Fieldcrest 3″ cooling foam topper at Target yesterday. Didn’t fix it 100% but it was a good first step. Also didn’t wake up covered in sweat like we used to. 

Balance Bike

Monday, July 24th, 2017

Well, we got Lucas a balance bike.  He took to it right away.  Not the best yet, but he did pretty good for his first time.  He also had a blast on hit which is all we care about.

PGP

Thursday, July 20th, 2017

Well,

I decided to try setting up PGP email again.  Not sure how it will work on my phone but on my work desktop it works great in a browser (Gmail).  If you want my public key, let me know.

Amazon Echo Dot

Monday, July 17th, 2017

Got the two free Echo Dots that I got for pre-ordering my phone. Both are setup, one in the living room and one in the bedroom. Looking then so far. Kind of worried that the one in the bedroom will end up lighting up in the middle of the night. Hoping not though. Really disliking the skill for my Sensi thermostat though. All I can do is set a temperature I want, raise or lower it n degrees. I cannot turn the AC/heat on/off. Hopefully it gets updated to allow this.

Wife and I did our taxes last weekend. Really like how much we are getting back. My dad also had a HP Envy Touch Slimbook that he gave me, needed a new HDD. So I put my 250GB Samsung 850 EVO SSD in it. Won’t run much for games, but it is a much nicer laptop than the Lenovo I was using (i5 vs i3, weighs less, etc). No DVD drive in it, but I can survive without that for a while. Eventually, one will be on sale at Amazon and I’ll pick it up. I’d get a BluRay burner, but they still cost an arm and a leg, maybe a reader though.

Theme

Monday, December 12th, 2016

I decided to change out the theme on my site. Even though I’ve always had a PC at home, classic Mas OS holds a special place in my heart since it’s what my elementary and high school had growing up.

Insurance

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2016

Well,
Just got our insurance plans/premiums for next year. They are super expensive but I cannot blame my employer, I definitely blame our government for it.

Amazon Prime Day

Friday, July 1st, 2016

Amazon Prime Day is coming July 12th. If you do not have Prime, it is a great time to sign up. My wife and I have it and in addition to the free 2 day shipping, we stream a lot of video and our son loves his Free Time 🙂


Android Development

Thursday, April 28th, 2016

Well,
I have decided to do some Android development for the fun of it again. So far its going well, even have Jenkins setup to build automagically for me (just because I can). Working on a project for my wife and so far its turning out very well, couple more things I need to worry about doing but I think she will be happy with the end result.

Meh

Monday, October 5th, 2015

Well, MN law states that heat doesn’t have to be turned on before October 15th.  That means since it is getting down to the high 20s at night it gets very cold in my apartment.  Wife and I have resorted to using a space heater to keep our son’s room warm enough so he will sleep through the night.
