OUCH QUIT IT NEW FLOOR AND ZAZEN 98662
I spent the weekend not blogging as you loyal readers already know. I did however remove a lot of carpet and vinyl and partical board that was the old flooring in the common areas of my house and than I proceeded to lay down some new Pergo (tm) flooring. Oh and now I hurt. This evolution has been the best exercise I have gotten in over a year. It is a lot like doing a gazillion squat thrusts for eight hours a day for two days streight. Yeah my legs are burning.
Some other revelations over the weekend:
I bought a table saw. Table saws are really really nice to have when you are cutting things. They are so nice to have I have no idea how I ever managed to cut things without one. Oh yeah, I struggled. Clearly one of the coolest tool investments I have made in a long time. Power tools rock!
I also got a circular saw. While not nearly as cool as the table saw it is much easier to use when you can't bring whatever it is you want to cut to the table saw. Like the partical board you are trying to dislodge from the floor.
Also got a cool new razor knife. Not the kind of knife I would have invested in in the past since I don't think it would be too useful in combat, however it has got a really cool replaceable blade that I don't have to worry about sharpening every time I use it to open up another box of planks.
All of these tool purchases is still cheaper than hiring out someone to do the labor. Win!
Yes, I could have rented the tools and it would have been cheaper and I would not have had to be concerned about storing them later. But as a mortgage payer I have a feeling these tools will come in handy again and again. Heck they have already paid for themselves so why not.
Just ZMH and I sitting the last few days. The wife has not been feeling well and ZMI sleeps like... Well like someone who sleeps really heavily.
