Sold the condo on Monday. And now we're back down to only 1 property. Yay? Feeling bittersweet about selling though. It was home for 7 years or so? Lucy and Jackson's first home. But anyway. Ordered up some Samba Originals (instead of the Classics, because I didn't need to fold the tongue over). Hoping they fit. Figured I needed some athletic shoes to chase the kids around the playgrounds and parks and stuff. Been sick (head cold I think), started last Thursday, and I think in the trailing edge. Just need to get the mucus out of my head, and away from the back of my throat. Been going through lots of cough drops to prevent hacking up a lung and actually being able to do some work. Actually feels better if I whisper. Oh, and started watching Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. It's good, and in some strange ways, oddly familiar.

Went to my 20th, err, 21st high school reunion last weekend. Out of 105 graduating classmates, I counted 13 who showed up. It was, interesting. Parents also threw a birthday party for Lucy, who turned 6. Bought another bike off Craigslist, a 1983 Miyata 610. That will be the one long ride bike, while the Raleigh Super Course will become a daily driver/commuter for me. If it isn't too small.

Started using Sleep++ to do some sleep tracking. Not promising. Not great seeing how late I stay up and how little sleep I get. Hopefully it's a kick in the butt to get to bed earlier. Also moved the Withings Smart Body Analyzer to directly in front of my sink in the bathroom so I'm stepping on it more often. So will have more logged weight data. All to feed gyrosco.pe. Got surprised that Deadpool was released yesterday, so stayed up way too late last night watching that after watching S6E1 of Game of Thrones. Watched the first episode of After the Thrones as well, and realized how slow they talk normally after always using Smart Speed via Overcast while listening to their podcasts. Sprained my ankle over the weekend trying to skateboard. Yes, I'm an idiot. It's getting better, but I think the last time I sprained it was on the very same skateboard. I should probably just get rid of it, seems that's the only thing I use it for. Means I haven't biked this week. Fingers crossed, we have a closing date for the condo. So hopefully soon down to 1 mortgage. Last week went to Great Wolf Lodge for Lucy's spring break with the Argaos. Good times. Looking forward to when the kids are all old enough to play amongst themselves, and we don't have to worry about them drowning all the time. Lucy did go on a bunch of slides, so that's a step up. Oh, I also dropped and cracked my phone screen a couple days before the trip, so had to get that replaced. And I now keep the silicone case on it now for grip. Of course now I want more colors to match the sports bands I have. Also, finally got myself an Adidas track suit from the outlet next to Great Wolf. Been wanting one of those for a long time. Tomorrow's take your kids to work day, so Tracy and Lucy and Jackson are coming in for a bit.

I only briefly mentioned The Magicians (tv show) earlier this year, but I'm really really into it. I'm really impressed with the TV show take on the world created in the novels. And they were kind of able to tie it all together, which is impressive. But really, I would actually have a hard time decided which version is better, the TV adaptation is that good. Can't say there's many others out there that satisfy that criteria for me. Besides that, I watched Star Wars: The Force Awakens at home. Holds up. Also, watched the trailer for Rogue One. That one looks pretty good too. Like a good movie all by itself, and then as a bonus, it takes place within the Star Wars universe. Got a tingle down the spine watching that. Watched the first episode of Season 2 of Daredevil (Netflix Series). Haven't plowed through that yet.
