Went swimming with my Apple Watch 4 for the first time tonight. Automatically started a workout and accurately kept track of my laps. Pretty nice.

Trying to get a bunch of work done at my desk and was struggling to find the right soundtrack. Settled into Achtung Baby, but I wonder what other albums people listen to while working… 🎧

Ryan had a blast at soccer tonight and scored his first goal. (Also awesome about 7-year-old soccer… hugs for parents between quarters.)

I now have my entire Facebook post history in an Excel spreadsheet. The first step in trying to build a physical book with all my family stories from the last 11 years.
