Took the day off from work today - was very relaxing.

Enlisted my oldest son's help with replacing the front brake pads on the minivan. Verified that the back brakes are disc brakes instead of drum so I will be able to replace those as well without too much trouble. Although I am trying to not take on as much stuff personally, I can't justify the $650 expense of replacing the brakes by someone else right now.

I also got the wife's TV setup in the kitchen now. It is a cool setup that uses an old lcd monitor that I got for $20 and a raspberry pi which connects to our collection of Movies, TV shows and Music stored on a NAS.

The weather was in the upper 40's today which was pretty warm, usually much colder by now.
