I ended up buying myself an anniversary present so the wife wouldn't feel too bad when I surprised her with what I got her as well, and had a really good experience with a website I had been a member of for a while but never bothered to use, theclymb.com. More on that purchase in the future.
Right now I want to focus on finally breaking the 1000 mile mark for the year and the joys of having a 25 mile commute day. It's no secret I'm not really in love with my job right now, but any excuse to ride an extra couple of miles and I'm on board.
Oh well. You do what you can, drink what you've got, and fuck all the rest.
