Several weeks, a few dozen photos and four thousand words later, we’ve finally made it—the Casey Palmer, Canadian Dad 2017 wrap-up, filled with stories aplenty of 365 days spent in my not-so-orthodox life.

After wrapping the year up on a quiet note (because two sick children under five will do that to you), I still felt it necessary to do this. These year-to-year changeovers offer a lot of perspective for me—with so much happening all the time, I often forget what I had for breakfast, so I write everything down. And if the height of the pile on my desk is any sign, 2017 was quite the year. But it’s also the time where I’m the most transparent, looking back objectively at everything I’ve done and celebrating successes, owning up to failures, hoping all the while that I’m somehow growing from the process.

But yeah—let’s do this as we did in 2016: look at the year in excruciating detail, figuring out what’s worth taking with me into 2018 versus what just don’t feel part of my world anymore.

Ladies and gentlemen, let me present—the 31 things I did well in 2017! Let’s get it!

I realised after a recent discussion with TP-Link that we really don’t put much time into keeping the things that fuel our lifestyles up to date! When they offered the chance to review the TP-Link Archer C5400 router and the TP-Link Smart Wi-Fi Bulb, I suddenly realised it’d been at least five years since I’d updated my router!

That’s almost a century in technology years!

So that in mind, let me show you how I improved my life with TP-Link technology!

So you don’t know what you don’t know. With four adults under our roof and at least 20 devices connected to our router, it’s amazing we didn’t address this sooner. Technology’s evolving faster than ever—just when you learn what your current tools can do, you discover a whole world of functionality that blows your mind!
