Where all the hours/days/weeks/years youâ€™ve spent doing something are added up, then someone is going to look at me and say: â€œTime spent reading on the toilet = 8 years of your life, King.â€
Yesterday was Date Day and we pretty much did our usual. SWMBO took me to Red Robin where I had some pretty good chicken strips and some really terrible steak fries. ( Not a crispy one in the bunch and most of them were cold. Not freezer cold; but theyâ€™ve been sitting out for awhile cold.)
Afterwards we did something that you could probably count on one hand us doing before: We walked through Home Depot discussing ideas and projects and walked out empty handed. Didnâ€™t spend a dime. Highly unusual for us. But it was fun though. My idea to replace the Boob Lights in the big room with bright LEDâ€™s got kinda squashed, but, hey, thatâ€™s the way the cookie crumbles.
Thing about the Big Room is: we donâ€™t really spend a lot of time there. If we are there, weâ€™re either playing with something (need bright lights) or watching a movie (need little light). Neither of which we do often. Not often enough to spend a couple hundred $ for new lights. Not even when we get a really large TV to go in there.
Hell, we watch more movies together sitting here at my desk and using one of the 32â€ monitors. Both of us use the Library for sitting around more than any other room. (If you donâ€™t count the bathrooms. Which is sitting around with a purpose.)
Sometimes I think we ought to make half the Big Room into another bedroom for guests. But weâ€™re going to put a loft in there for that purpose. And cause itâ€™ll be fun and kinda neat. Still have no idea what to do with the gas fireplace we never use. Could convert it to a wood burner â€œjust in case.â€ I want bigger windows in there also. Floor to ceiling windows.
Today has been our usual Sunday. I made another Beef Stew for dinner but this one didnâ€™t turn out as good as the last one to me. Tried not making it as thick as usual per suggestion from SWMBO. Didnâ€™t taste the same. So I told her sheâ€™ll probably just have to get used to thick stew. (Itâ€™s supposed to be STEW, not Soup!)
Anywho, that really is all thatâ€™s going on. SWMBO painted the trim on the new linen closet I put in and now we be chillinâ€™ for the rest of the night.
Oh, it sprinkled some.
