It’s been a little while since I really updated, and there’s actually been a lot going on.
Friday I got my fancy new router from Dell(linksys WRT54GL) and flashed it in about 30 minutes.
It seems to work just fine, and I like that I can tweak little settings to get better performance.
I also like that I can monitor things now like IP connections and whatnot.
So that’s the geeky bit out of the way.
Saturday should have been a painting day, bet Tara and I bopped around town looking for…things.
A holder for hand towels, some curtains and various other accent pieces.
Then we masked off both bathrooms.
THEN we painted.
We started painting at 7pm. We got one coat done in the downstairs bathroom, and even did the ceiling(although that was more to do with a lack of masking than with initial choice).
Then we slept.
The next day was all about painting. All said, we got both bathrooms done. And they look fantastic!
Also, Tara and I cooked a Thanksgiving dinner for my Dad that night.
Well, I’d like to say that Tara cooked, I helped. 🙂
After dinner we watched some Southern thanksgiving cooking show, and were waiting for them all to have heart attacks.
Rule of thumb, when deep frying your turkey, it’s 3 minutes per pound. Ewww
Also, they had hamburger wrapped in puff pastry, bacon wrapped bread sticks and some kind of sweet potato ball covered in coconut with a marshmallow inside.
It was a long and exhausting day, and we finally just collapsed at around 10.
Monday was a little more lazy. We had some touch-up work to do in the bathrooms. Tara sorted out some curtains, I fought with some window film stuff(Tara rescued me and the window film) and that was really about it.
Oh, somewhere along the lines I got a nasty little bit of mail that said my auto insurance was going to be canceled due to non-payment.
I had switched companies, and was told by one dude that I didn’t have to inform anyone and that it would all be handled for me.
Apparently I was wrong.
Got a hold of my old company, told them my story, and they’re faxing stuff over now so that I can cancel properly.
So, if you switch, make sure you do all the canceling yourself.
I’ve been learned 🙂
Other than that, it’s been a busy work week, and I can’t wait for it to end.
I’m having another Thanksgiving dinner this weekend. I should really ramp up that whole exercise thing 😉
