Now that it's no longer freezing rain and sleet, the little one and I left the house. We bundled up in a bunch of layers and took a walk nearby the house.
The nature trail was flooded, which makes sense with all the rain. So we didn't end up getting too far, but far enough for a 4 year old.
In the afternoon we made another Popin' Cookin'. This time we made candy sushi. 
He had fun and ate the whole thing. It must be good since he inhaled it all. I was too unsettled with how the roe looked like intestines to try anything.

I've been sitting on repairing a faulty dvd drive for over a year. I've had the part but just never carved out the time to open up the case and make the necessary repair. Part of my delay is taking the time to swap daughter boards from the old xbox dvd drive to the new dvd drive. If you don't make this swap, the xbox won't recognize the drive.

Anyway, the whole repair took a few hours, since I spent a fair amount of time screaming at the plastic clips that need to be carefully removed and reassembled. I miss the days of things just being a screw instead of cheap plastic that can snap off easily.

Now we have a working xbox one dvd drive. The first thing I did was download a bunch of games (and not actually use the dvd drive). 

Having a small child means usually being the second to try new video games. Ring Fit Adventure was no exception.

No one was eating the starbursts at work, so (on the suggestion of a co-worker) I opened up a bunch of packets. No everyone can pick the flavor they want instead of it being a blind two pack of candy.

We did some drawing today.

I used to have some of these as a kid. I can't even imagine the frustration for kids today when there are so many other options of entertainment and this is what they're handed. While I would totally play with one of these again, it's for nostalgia only. There are better entertainment options available now.

I took advantage of blue skies and took a walk. It's still chilly out, but not terrible if you wear layers.

We worked on some homework today, which was decorating a mitten.
