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 😀 😀
