2015.02.06 – Writing More Unit Tests

Today started out rainy. I was pretty happy for that. I love the rain! I got ready and went downstairs. Jordan and Natale were already down getting ready for school. Jordan said that Lauren had forgotten her soup for lunch and I know she wasn’t feeling well so I felt bad for her. It was pretty early though and I had plenty of time before we would be leaving so I asked Jordan if he wanted to go with me to surprise her with her lunch. He said sure so we drove over. She was SO happy!

Wayne dropped me off at Mozilla and it felt like a relief to be in the cozy office. I had a lot to work on. Refactoring some code, writing tests, fleshing out templates. I chatted with Peter a bit about some stuff I needed clarification on and then dove into writing my tests. I got some written. Yay! They all fail right now. Boo! Ah well.

Jordan got done at school so he rode the streetcar over and sat with me until Wayne picked us up. Katt came in and sat with us for a while too which was really nice. Once I got home I plopped on the couch and paid some bills before getting back to work. Natale was watching the first Harry Potter movie so that was a bit distracting but I managed to get stuff done.

We made a really good and easy dinner. Uncooked pasta, diced tomatoes, garlic, onion, basil, seasonings, veggie broth, a bit of olive oil. Toss it all in a pot and bring to a boil. Simmer about 10 – 15 minutes. Dinner!

After dinner Andrew helped me with my unit tests. I have two functioning tests now! I can’t wait until I can reason through this stuff as quickly as he does. Testing is super cool and I want to get really good at it.

Today I learned that our children’s school has nearly a 50% opt-out rate for vaccinations. Ugh!
