Another Basement Update

Posted in Blog via Cell Phone on April 3rd, 2019 by James

So we had everyone over, got most of the floor laid down. Last Saturday Ben and Jim came over. We finished the floor, got the baseboards, door casing up. It’s look hella good down there. Got a few little things to finish up on. Me and Stephanie has been working on little things over past few days. Light/power outlet covers, clean everything up, etc. Basically we’re 95% done. So excited to be done with it.

Now to move onto outdoor stuff. Fluid changes in the truck, wheel bearings on the boat, yard junk, etc. Hope to go fishing here in the next two weeks. Just got to get the truck, boat, and find some time.

Poker Weekend

Posted in Blog via Cell Phone on February 21st, 2019 by James

This past weekend wasn’t anything too exciting. Did have a nice three day weekend off with Stephanie. Ran Gabe down to Helper, UT through a snow storm Thursday evening as he had an extended weekend off from school.

Only thing that stands out from the weekend is lunch with Stephanie and Ben on Saturday. Poker Saturday evening. First few hours of that was ugly. But my cards started to hit in the third hour. Came home with a good amount of money of pocket. Putting that towards debt/vacation this summer. Didn’t get home till about 12:30am, in bed at 2am, then Stephanie woke me at 7am for the gym. UGGGGGG, but it was good. I’m happy that I went.

Got our taxes done yesterday. Super expensive, and pointless. We’re getting money back, so I’m not complaining about that. Just more bummed about how much we paid to have them done. I mentioned to Stephanie that it’s something we can easier do at home. Our taxes are far from anything too crazy.

This upcoming weekend nothing too exciting. Maybe poker Saturday night, I think Stephanie wants me home, plus I’m on-call for work. Stephanie is working Saturday which sucks. Maybe the gym on Sunday. But besides that, no plans.

Birthday Weekend

Mellow weekend for sure. Played some racquetball Saturday morning with Jim. That was a good time, and did some errands. Got home, cleaned a bit, and watch some of the US Mens soccer game. Stephanie ended up working overtime, so I didn’t see much of her on Saturday.

Sunday, was a mellow day. Had the fam over for lunch, and I had a good time. Did some shopping during the Super Bowl. It’s the best time to go shopping, it’s a ghost town with everyone watching the game. We watched maybe half of the game, watched some TV, and went to bed. Uneventful weekend for sure.

Next Saturday got the monthly poker game, which I always look forward to.

Stephanie applied for a promotion about a week ago. She interviewed last Thursday for it, and the job was offered to her last Friday. Few bucks more a hour which is always. I’m happy for her, it’s badass that she got a promotion at work.

Wow, I’ve been really lazy with this damn thing.

Bill Gates speech: 11 rules your kids did not and will not learn in school.

Something I saw on Facebook this morning.

Bill Gates speech: 11 rules your kids did not and will not learn in school

Rule 1: Life is not fair – get used to it!

Rule 2: The world doesn’t care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

Rule 3: You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You won’t be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.

Today has been such a slow boring day at work. Yesterday was pretty slow also. BLAH!!!

Waiting here, Waiting on Glad

Posted in Blog via Cell Phone on September 3rd, 2009 by James

Outside of Glad’s work picking her up since her car is still broken. Highlight of the week was going to see Star Trek with Ben and James. Movie was decent and enjoyable. Glad was working, or she would have went. That was Tuesday night.

Wednesday was a boring day and nothing too exciting. Jim did come over for some Cribbage. He was only over for maybe 2 hours.

Today was boring also. Far from anything too exciting. We did have too run around like chickens with our heads cut off for a bit today.

Tomorrow I hope to make it to the bar to see Corvid (Bens newer band) play. But money is tight so who knows what will happen.

I’m trying to do the whole non smoking thing again. My quit date is Sunday Sept 13th. I’m not excited to get up at 5:30 for work in the morning.

I’m hoping for a slow weekend at work, with it being Labor Day weekend and all. I have Labor Day off from work. No big plans, just a bbq at my parents place. Sunday night were having a few people over for Glad birthday. Her birthday is Tuesday technically.
