I went with my buddy Matt. His Uncle is a season ticket holder, and had extra tickets for the game.
It seems like everybody’s having babies!
I was at a 1 year old’s birthday 2 Saturdays ago now.
Matt and Jessica where due yesterday, so they are going to the hospital and having the baby tomorrow I guess.
Chris and Chris are 27 weeks along! They even created a blog for the baby! http://www.chasepowell.com/
Last night, Matt and Jessica came over for dinner (we all went out) and to play cards & Cranium. While they where deciding what they wanted to do, I started to screw the bed frame together.
Matt had to help me as the one short end board had started to twist already. I put 3 screws in each end, and also used these metal brackets. To my great surprise the frame ended up perfectly square.
Matt and I did a lot of figuring to try to get these floor joist brackets positioned right. We ended up getting it right on paper. I am quite proud that I got it figured out being that it was midnight and all. The outside ends are what made things work out weird. As you can see, my cat Sister was supervising, making sure her latest scratching post/ toy/ whatever she wants it to be is properly assembled.
As you can see, All that is left for this part of the bed is to notch the 2×4 stringers so the 1X12s drop in and lay flush.
Katie and I dropped off my second load of stuff today. This was the truckload that Bill was so kind enough to let me store in his garage for a year and a half. The only thing broken out of all the glass was a chipped mug that could have come from the store that way.
I haven’t decided how to do the living room but I have awesome ideas for the kitchen. Matt and Jessica left a rolling dishwasher for me, so I have a dishwasher now. It isn’t built in so I am going to make a small cutting boad surfaced island to put against one wall to wheel it into. I will get another folding barstool and I can use it as a breakfast table too. I am going to make it nice and tall so it will be a great prep area for me.
The coolest idea is for the computer in the kitchen. I will put each of my 19 inch monitors into the two corners of the kitchen on those wall TV shelves even with the top of the cabinets. They will both show the same screen, and each end of the kitchen will have a wireless keyboard and mouse in a tray under the cabinets. I will use my current Media Center PC so I can watch the food network or have a recepe on the screen. I am thinking it will be cool.
I am also going to build a storage shelf that is strong enough to put the fridge and a chest freezer ontop of so I don’t need to squat down to look into the fridge.
I am going to make another trip this weekend for my junk. I will be moving my fish tanks. That will be a chore. I am thinking all the fish will end up in the planted tank for the time being. I want to put the tv tank into my entertinment center. I think I want a stand for my planted tank and put that between the doors to the bedroom and bathroom. I may break down and buy that instead of building it.g it.
