Since we moved into our new place, we’d been talking about getting a large shelf for the garage. We’ve got lots of camping stuff and random other garage type things that needed a permanent place other than in a pile on the garage floor. Last Saturday, I went to Home Depot and picked up the shelf that Candied Jansen and I had picked out. I lamented the fact that I had to make a trip to Lesbian Mecca alone, but Candied Jansen wasn’t feeling well, and if I wanted to start the work in the garage, I had to go get the shelf. I had someone at Home Depot load it into the car, but when I got home, it was too heavy for me to unload alone. Candied Jansen was napping so I decided to open the box while it was still mostly in my car and carry it in pieces to the garage. Genius! The directions were very simple, but I couldn’t manage the construction of the shelf alone. It was just too big. When Candied Jansen awoke, she helped me put the shelf together and then had to rest. I spent the rest of the day emptying boxes and arranging the shelf and another sports shelf we have in the garage. It felt so good to get it done! Alas, though…we still can’t park in the garage! We have several boxes of books that need a place, and I haven’t decided if that place is here with us, donated to a school, or sold to a used book store. Also, we recently acquired some “new” living room furniture that we are storing in the garage for my son. He’s getting it the first weekend in February so that is my deadline on the boxes of books. Once the books and furniture are gone, there are only bikes to deal with. The cars can fit with the bikes, but it will make for a tight fit. The bikes will eventually get hung and then the garage will be completely car ready! I can’t wait!!
(How’s that for a completely boring, nonpolitical post??)
And because reading back over the post bores even me, here is a picture of the bike Candied Jansen got me for Christmas!!
That is one awesome machine! This picture is from the Walmart.com website because the pics we took were a little blurry. But not because we’d been drinking too many margaritas to hold the camera steady!!
Geez…this is a lame post!
