Final score of 98.2 on my tax prep coarse.

I could go back and get the last 1.8 points but I'm fine with that.

I got a seasonal job!

Man my standards are low. Happy to get a minimum wage part time gig.

But that means I'll be able to leave my savings alone till January when Tax season kicks into high gear.

Almost done 3d printing organizer trays for my D&D Adventure series board games. I'm honestly amazed at how much more fun I have and how much more often I play when everything is neatly organized. Just the fact that the games are set up in seconds and there is no digging through piles of counters makes the game play so much faster.

Nice. Had a similar situation with gloomhaven. My friend bought the original game back when ti first game out, and we played maybe 5 sessions of it in as many months. But I got the Streamlined Jaws of the Lion spin-off where all the maps are printed in a spiral book instead of needing assembly from tiles AND used the app that replaces like 80% of the admin components and we played through almost 20 scenarios in 3 months.

Ease of getting a game to a table is absolutely a dealbreaker in both directions.

Congrats! Grandkids are way better than kids. They're kind of like a friend's boat. You get to have all the same fun but without all the headaches. :lol:

Thanks both. :thumbup:

The birth was not without its complications for both of them, but they are being well cared for and we had a video call with them a little while ago where they both appeared to be doing well.
