What I've Been Up To

Wow, it feels like it's been a busy two weeks. My wife mentioned a couple weeks ago that she wanted to start painting the bathroom we've been remodeling for 5 years. I think that was the motivation I needed to finish the drywall. She got it all painted and I started putting trim up last night. I have never done the trim that goes along the floor and I have to say the angles started giving me a headache. My saw is one that was passed down to me and it only bevels one direction. I don't know if this is the way new ones are or not, but it sure makes figuring out the angles even harder. I would really like a laser guided one.

Anyway, I got ready to start the base trim and ran out of trim. I have no idea how this is possible because we bought plenty when we started the project and I don't remember using it anywhere else. So, I need to make a store run for more trim and then I will try these angles again so I can get it all finished up. It'll sure be nice to be done with that project!

Besides that, my parents kept our son overnight Friday so we could go out for our anniversary. We hadn't been able to find anyone to watch him on our actual anniversary. We went to a Japanese steakhouse. The food was amazing and I love watching the chef cook right in front of us! We even tried sushi...although it was deep fried sushi, so I don't know if that counts. We would like to go back and just try some different kinds of sushi.

So, that's what's been happening with me lately. I'll have some more reviews/giveaways coming soon. I've got Anti Monkey Butt Powder (giveaway), Cast Iron Cooker (review only), BBQ Sauce (review only), and Tropical Traditions hand soap (giveaway) coming soon! Stay tuned and enter all my current giveaways too! All have low entries. See the list at the top of my blog!
