Basement….

Posted in Family, Friends, General on March 4th, 2019 by James

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.

Second Weekend

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.

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.

Memories, Hooks, and Guns!

Memories, Hooks, and Guns!

Let’s see, a lot of has happened over the past week. Last Friday I went to Club Vegas with a friend to see Corvid play a show. Had a good fun time. To my surprise my parents both went to Club Vegas to Corvid/Ben play. It was a lot of fun. Didn’t make it to bed till around 2am if I remember right. No biggie, but had to be up at 5:30am to get some fishing done.

So I got up at 5am or so to meet up with Jim to get some fishing done. We decided to go up and hit Strawberry. It was a great trip, just wish the fishing was better. I managed to catch a 14″ rainbow after a few hours of nothing. We ended up a getting a few bites. Called it quits at around 10:30-11:00. I wanted to be back into SLC at around noon. I managed to get home at 12:30. At 2pm I meet the Crums for lunch at Rodizio Grill up in SLC. We all enjoyed the food, and it was a great time. I was beyond the point of tired, and not even thinking right. Some time over the weekend, I also managed to buy a Mossberg 12 gauge shotgun. I got a pretty good price on it, $177.00 from evil Walmart.

Camping = Epic

Camping = Epic

Camping was a great, along with the weekend. I had Thursday and Friday off from work. Relaxed Thursday morning and took my time getting ready. Was out the door at around 11pm, headed on over Jim’s place. Get there, went to Walmart, Arbys, and loaded everything up in the truck. We then started our way on up to Causey Res. We had to take 2 cars since everyone wouldn’t fit in Jim’s truck.

So Excited.....

SOOOOO FREAKING EXCITED!!!!! 24 hours from now I’ll be camping with Jim, and Jen. Jen decided to fly into SLC, instead of driving into SLC. Me and Jim are gonna go pick her up from the airport. Hit the bar up for some pool and beer. I think the plan for tomorrow is meet up around noon, and head on up to Causey Res. Boat into some random place, and camp there. I’m super excited, should be a good time. I haven’t done any camping in over 2 years. I’m super excited to have the next 2 days off from work. I have Thursday and Friday off from work. I plan on posting a bunch of pictures when I get back.

Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving

Had a pretty good Thanksgiving. I had Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday off from work. I should have worked Thursday and Friday since I need the money. Nothing too exciting happened on Tuesday. Wednesday took the kids on up to Evanston. Hung out for a bit, and went shooting with Dean. That was fun as always. Then drove on home and got home the same time as Glad. Glad was working and didn’t go up to Evanston with me. When I got home, Ben needed help with hauling a washer on up to his apartment. So I helped Jacob and Ben move the washer on up. Jessica and Martin invited us on over for some dinner. Had beans and rice. That was really tasty.

Thursday for lunch we went on over to Glad’s parents for some yummy turkey. Then for dinner we went on over to my Grandma’s for turkey dinner. Got home at around 7:30 watched some Heroes with Glad. Val was in town from Portland. So me, Val, Glad, Ben, and Val went to the dollars movies to see Surrogates. We were planning on seeing Halloween II, but it wasn’t playing. Surrogates was an alright movie. Nothing too special, but a cool idea. Could have been better.

Friday, me and Glad went to the new Winco. It was alright, I don’t like the way the store is laid out. But good decent prices, and can’t go wrong there. We then made Sheppard’s Pie and had a few people over. We had Matt, Val, and the neighbors over for that. Glad was working the 8 till midnight shift at work. So she left at about 7:30 for work. Later on in the night Judd, and Adam came over. They all left at around 12:30 since I had work in the morning. Overall a good drunken time with friends.

The Past Week…

The Past Week...

Woke up Tuesday morning and got the kids off to school. Went back to bed for a few hours then got up to see Inglourious Basterds. Glad wasn’t feeling up to it, and stayed at home. So I just went by myself. I really enjoyed the movie, and thought it was great. It was about time I saw a full price movie that I enjoyed. I guess I enjoy the Watchmen also.

Tuesday night, Val Crum came into town. We took the kids to see Def Leppard and Poison. Not really my cup of tea, but I had a good time. Traffic was HORRIBLE. We got there an hour late and missed Cheap Trick. If traffic wasn’t an issue, we would have gotten there in 5-10 minutes. But it took a good solid hour to get there. Then afterwards, it took us an hour to get home. It was worth it, and I had a good time.

Wednesday night, me and the kids went to Valley Fair Mall. I got a new case for my phone. Afterwards, Jim came over to play some cribbage. Usually the games of cribbage with Jim are real close, or I get my ass kicked. Needless to say, it was the other way around. Either way, I had a good time.
