What Did Your Weekend Involve?

Hey Everyone!

I had a pretty busy weekend, fun but busy. I am posting a bit early today because I am leaving work at noon. We are having our bedroom furniture delivered and I don’t want to be up until 11pm putting it together so I’ll do it during the day. 😀

I’ll skip right to Saturday. I went to my brothers to set up some tote storage in his basement. Check it out:

This is one of the two racks that we made. (That’s my brother) We made the big cuts to the plywood at my place with the table saw then brought it all to his house.

This is one of the four shelves we made. We cut the 2×4’s in his basement with his circular saw. He used left over wood from tearing apart his enclosed porch.

We finally got them up and together. He is going to fill that corner gap at a later date and maybe make one more.  For the time being it works well.

I couldn’t leave without seeing our work in action! We grabbed some of his totes from the attic and brought them down. Not too shabby if you ask me. 😉

Sunday my wife and I went to get groceries (God, I can’t ever spell that word), and while we were there I was inspired from the night before. We have a tote storage system in our basement but it was covered in junk, and not organized at all. I took it upon myself to change that. I bought 10 totes of my own from the store and got to work. I cleared everything I could and burnt what could be burnt. I am now left with six spots for totes and the rest are filled with Christmas decorations, and extra flooring.

While we were shopping I also grabbed some plumber’s caulking. Where our baseboard meets the wall, under our new kitchen pass through, is a gap for one reason or another. It looked like crap. I was able to fill it with a white silicone mixture and for never doing it before it looks great. I got quite a bit done with weekend.

Later that day of course we went to my parent’s house for the football game. I’m disappointed that the Patriots won only because now they are tied with the Cowboys for Super Bowl wins haha. We had about 10-12 people over for the game, so it was cozy in one room. We had homemade pizza and other little snacks. It looked like it was going to be a blow out there for a little while, and then I think Lady Gaga changed all that! After the first half it was a whole new ball game. The Pats scored 25 unanswered points to come back and tie the game. That’s pretty insane. The Patriots won the coin toss in over time and marched down the field and won the game with one more final touchdown. The Falcons had a chance to make it a two score game and didn’t capitalize, shame on them lol. The Pats made history in the fact that no team has ever won from a deficit of 14+ points, ever in a Super Bowl. Tom Brady of course went on to get his third SB MVP award, and his fifth Lombardi trophy.

That was my weekend, what did you do? Feel free to let me know in the comments below!

I’ll see you back again tomorrow, and I’ll let you know how my furniture turns out! C-ya 😀 😀

  1. You are really handy! It seems as though your brother is too. I would be almost tempted to not fill in the corner gap in his basement so very tall things could be stored there like, I don’t know…boat oars, hockey sticks, etc. You know the bulky awkward things that never seem to have a spot.

    This weekend, I did quite a few errands. We worked in the sound booth at church on Sunday and went out to eat with friends. Sunday night was Superbowl, of course. I did some cooking for that as well.

    1. I learn something new every time, that is what I like about it. anything I do generally infuriates me and takes 3 time longer than other people haha. That is a good idea for usage of space, I’ll let him know about that.

      Sounds like a fun weekend. When I was growing up, and went to church I helped run the sound board during the sermon. It was me and one other kid, he would record video for people in shut ins and I kept the audio end.

      1. I would like to be able to do some of the stuff I read about you doing…but I’d have all the pieces in the wrong places or some legs of things shorter than others. LOL.

        It was a pretty nice weekend. When we do the sound booth, the Mister does the “sound” part. I put up the words to songs, Bible verses when appropriate and show the videos if there are any that week.
