Stuff……

Posted in General on July 11th, 2019 by James

July 4th weekend was alright. Went to Miah’s for a few beers with Ben, and Stephanie. Played some cards last Saturday, did alright. Went out on a stupid hand that I shouldn’t have been in. Last night I went over to Russ’s, and did some poker training. Which was some good information that I plan on applying in the future. It was very insightful.

Managed to finally get the rear/front diff, and transfer case drained and refilled in the truck. Wasn’t too bad, took a few hours, but I took my time. Started to rain half way through it, which slowed me down a bit too.

No plans this weekend, Stephanie works Saturday during the day. Poker game Saturday night. Was wanting to do some fishing this weekend, but i’m call. Didn’t dare go over July 4th weekends. Holiday weekends are crazy on the lakes. Not thrilled about the summer weather. Rumor is that today is suppose to be the hottest day of the year. Hitting 100 degrees. Ugggg, really hate this summer heat. It’s that one month out of the year that I really hate. Usually it starts to cool back off in mid Aug. But even then, it’s still hot as balls.

Basement Update

Posted in General on March 21st, 2019 by James

Over two weeks into the basement, and I’m ready to get our basement back. We’ve made some good progress on it. Got the wall done, two coats of primer, paint, and new lights installed. Saturday we got Ben, Jim, and Matt coming over to get the flooring installed. I hope to get a good portion of it done. Would love to have the flooring done this weekend, then next weekend, the last bit of it. Still have the actual flooring to lay down, baseboards, and door casings. But soon, we should have our basement back. I’m guessing we’ll be 100% done come this weekend.

Basement….

Had a good weekend. Stephanie ended up working Saturday, so I had a mellow day during the day. In the afternoon, watched the RSL game, passed up a poker game to kick it with Stephanie and Ben. Ben had a few friends over Saturday evening, so we went over there for a few drinks, and good times.

Sunday…….What a packed full day. Went to the gym Sunday, and had a good work out. Went home, and started pulling the carpet in the basement. Jayden came over for a bit, and we all went to lunch for some Sushi. Went back home, finished pulling the carpet, the padding, and the stupid tacky boards. Matt came over, and we started to rip down that stupid wall that had some ugly wood panel BS, and threw up some dry wall. Busy packed full day. I’m impressed with the amount of work we got done. I think we decided on the floor/paint colors too. We hope to get the wall finished, paint done, and start laying down the floor on Sunday if everything goes as plan.

Life is Good

So I’ve been with Stephanie for just about 5 years. 5 great wonderful years. So this past weekend we celebrated 5 years from our first date/VD/etc. Went to grab Sushi which was damn tasty. May go again this upcoming weekend. After lunch we went to go see Green Book, which is a great movie. Think it may have been the best movie we’ve seen for 2018.

Saturday night played poker with the guys. Didn’t play the best. Just not the best cards, or the cards just didn’t play. I’m guessing I took 14th. Should have sat on my cards, and got into the top 10.

Last night me and Jim took the yearly Wendover birthday trip. Did really good at one blackjack table, sat down with 25, and walked away with 125. But doesn’t make up for the other money I lost. Lost more than I wanted too. Oh well, it was fun. I’m guessing I won’t be going to Wendover anytime soon.

Update…..

Wow, I’m starting to slack off on this. Last weekend wasn’t anything too exciting. Stephanie got suckered into working last weekend as overtime, along with tomorrow. Sucks cause she had to work OT last year on my birthday too. Played some poker this past Saturday night, that was alright. Took 8th out of about 18 players. Should have played better. Just dealt some bad cards. The good cards, just weren’t good enough.

Last Sunday, me and Stephanie did manage to replace the kitchen facet. Stephanie wanted an upgrade, and the last one was leaking pretty good.

This past Tuesday, I did manage to get the day off, and went shooting with Aaron. That was a blast. Went out on the South-West side of Utah Lake. I won’t go into deals, but did have lots of fun, and wanna buy an AR-15 now. So much fun. Aaron did shoot a 20lb frozen ham with a 30-06 (I think that was the round, or some short of big rifle round). It was awesome seeing that ham explode like that. Found ham 15-20 feet away, and a piece went flying about 15-20 feet in the air. We both got a good laugh out of that.

Snowy Extended Weekend

Posted in General, Movies on January 22nd, 2019 by James

Not a bad weekend with lots of driving, and lots of snow. Since I had Monday off from work, I decided to take Friday off, and give myself a nice four day weekend.

Thursday after work, we ran Gabe down to Helper, UT. Roads down here weren’t too bad, just lots of rain. Up US-6 we ran into some snow, but wasn’t too bad. The way back was another story. Snow packed roads all the way down the canyon till we got to Springville, then it was rain again. I think we average speed was about 20-30mph down the whole canyon on snow pack roads. Needless to say, it was a long drive. Left at about 3:15pm, and didn’t get back till about 8:30pm. It’s about 200 miles round trip.

Second weekend of the year, and everything is still going good. Diet is going alright, didn’t eat the best this weekend. Went to La Puente for dinner Friday evening, and it was damn tasty.

We finished up Killing Eve, and it’s a great show. We also finished up Sick Note, and Barry. Both alright shows.

Weekend

Posted in General, Movies on January 8th, 2019 by James

Not a bad weekend by any means, and doing alright with my diet. One of my goals for this year is my diet. Eat better and try to loose some weight. I was 229 Jan 2nd, by the end of the week, down to 224. My goal is loose 50 lbs. No clue if it’ll happen, but anything is better than nothing.

Friday night was alright. Bubblebee for dinner, Stephanie went to bed early since she had work on Saturday 🙁 I ended up watching the new Mission Impossible – Fallout. It was alright, nothing amazing, but a fun flick.

Birthday Weekend

Birthday Weekend

I must say I had a good weekend. Better than expected. Friday, me and Angela got ready, and went to Club Metro to check out Corvid and we saw part of Tragic Black. Corvid put on a great show. Besides that, it was okay. The vibe felt odd with the few people there. Angela was nice enough to drive my drunken ass home.
