For Vday, I celebrated by making heart shaped toast for seven year old, using a heart shaped cookie cutter. I also got a card and a scratch off Lotto ticket for Mrs. Ha, and she did the same for me. We didn't get lucky.
I finished our taxes on Monday, I think that's a record for me, I often wait until March. I was even able to efile the Federal for free, finally our government is getting into the 20th century. We're getting about $1300 back on taxes, maybe we'll be able to rent a cottage somewhere this summer. To celebrate, I stopped that local beer megamart on the way home, bought a six of Magic Hat's Roxy Rolles, and more brewing supplies. The Roxy Rolles is almost too hoppy, but it works as a winter ale.
Speaking of brewing, I tapped my Czech Pilsner, and am underwhelmed, it has a musty woody taste. I'm hoping more carbonation and being colder helps. I'm not sure what I did wrong.
Tuesday was inspection (MOT) day for the Tercel, it only cost $200. I was hoping for $50, but $200 is doable. My windshield broke a few weeks earlier, it was during the thaw and I suspect ice and snow slid off the roof, onto my windshield. I've spent over $400 on that car this month, it's really put a hurt on my February budget.
Wednesday was daddy daughters day, first I got up at 5:00 in the morning to drive twelve year to the bus for her Girl Scout trip to New York City, and picked up doughnuts for seven year old and me on the way home. Later, seven year old and I drove all over looking for Disney fairy toys, trying Toys'r'us, Walmart, Target and Kohl's, and finally finding a few in a KMart all the way up in a distant northern suburb.
After that, seven year old just wanted to play with them and watch TV, so I got some gaming in, Scenario 31 of Panzer Grenadier: Secret Weapons: Bitter Woods. It's an alt-history one in June 1945, assuming the Nazis were able to field the X-7 anti-tank wired guided missile (they may have been tried a few times in Hungary in 1945, records are contradictory, or missing).
The Girl Scouts went to the Today show Thursday, I saw twelve year old's bff in the crowd shots, but not twelve year old. It's DVR'ed, so twelve year old can review at her leisure. She's coming home Saturday evening, we'll see if that affects the monthly gaming meet.
