On a first-name basis with Lowe’s

no jumping on the bedclean up your roomwatch your mouth

Despite the lack of motivation from the cloudy and rainy weather, JD and I kicked some weekend tail. From Friday after work until Sunday night, these two Stuarts:

  • assembled a queen-size bed frame
  • realized the bed frame did not match the Smurf-colored headboard
  • jerry-rigged the headboard to the bed frame thanks to JD’s superior intelligence
  • jumped on the assembled bed to make sure the next friend to sleep on it (attorney friend Jeff) won’t sue us if the bed collapses
  • redecorated the guest room
  • weeded the garden
  • pruned the front yard bushes
  • bad-mouthed the previous owners for only planting painfully thorny bushes and trees
  • cut the grass
  • turned on the vacuum
  • fixed the sick-sounding vacuum
  • vacuumed the house
  • thought we fixed our bathroom toilet
  • hung up nine pictures in the living room (I cannot wait to show you the completed project this week)
  • made three trips to Lowe’s

And this doesn’t even count the normal weekend chores of dropping off recycling, going to the grocery store, and doing laundry! T0-do list, to-schmoo list!

I still can’t believe how much we did in 54 hours, while still getting lots of sleep and watching tons of football. Do you ever get that excited feeling after getting stuff accomplished?

play nice

    Can’t call much of what we watched “football,” unfortunately.
