I did get a lot of Harbor Freight stuff. I got a portable worktable/vise, and a gift card that I used to get a big cast iron Dutch oven. I think learning how to use a Dutch oven will be a goal this year. I guess they're great for camping, and I can't wait to go camping again.
I had my first King day off in a long time, maybe the first time ever. I don't remember how it was celebrated in the 80's. It could have been better, we got about over a foot of snow, I ended up shoveling a lot. There's still a lot of snow on the ground, our driveway is still full.
Mrs. Ha is going in for a reduction surgery next week, so she's been told to quit smoking and drinking, and she has. In solidarity, I'm cutting down too, to maybe only two beers with dinner. February is going to be lit!
I'm taking the day of the surgery off, and the day after. This weekend we will probably quarantine to avoid the chance of catching covid though the college kids will probably need to do a grocery run.
I'm tired of winter, I'm tired of the pandemic. This morning I went off to work, while getting gas on the way. It will be nice when I can figure out when it's slow at Costco, I can save close to $10 a tank on the minivan. I get to work, my fingers are numb. I remove the key and drop it, remove my gloves, fumble around for the key, fumble around opening my backpack, fumble around getting a mask and putting it on with number fingers. I miss WFH.
Oh yeah, we joined Costco. I'm still figuring out how to make it work for us, ie make the membership pay for itself.
Working on cars in the winter sucks, and both cars have issues. The minivan's battery had to be replaced a few weeks back. I wasn't surprised that the radio went, I was suprised that ABS and traction control aren't working. I was able to find the code for the radio and get it working this morning, over the weekend I have to get out there, short some wires in the ODBII port, and hope that it fixes the ABS and traction control. I have no idea when I'll figure out how to recalibrate the TPMS.
The Subaru probably needs a new battery. That's also a chore for this weekend. I'm going to bundle up. I made sure to grab my faux mechanix gloves for that, they're usually just used to move pallets.
Twenty_five_year_old is learning how to snowboard. Her bestie goes skiiing/snowboarding every weekend, he convinved her to try it. She'll be going to Bristol most Saturdays while the snow lasts.
It's almost the weekend, hooray!
