We are renovating our home and we needed to pick up a few more things. We got our blinds Manchester which is a great place to shop. Also, we found our bedside furniture at an antique shop. This is our first home and we are very excited! I cannot wait until everything is done so that we can invite our friends and family over for a house warming party. I know that everyone will be amazed with what we have done with the place. Lord knows it was a mess before! There were broken windows, bugs and overgrown ivy everywhere! However, we fell in love with the place the moment we saw it. It did not hurt that we got such a great price on it as well. We have put tons of money into it due to renovation. However, it is so worth the love and effort once you see the end result!
Our crew headed out to west 7th street on a job, the first job of the day, and I was still looking to my coffee to wake me up some. Apparently a fire had gutted a local bar, famous for their Jucy Lucys (if you don’t know what a Jucy Lucy is, then you’ve been missing out).
So we pull up to the place, The Corner Bar, and it’s a real mess. Luckily for the other businesses, the fire only partially destroyed the bar leaving enough cushion between the other stores. Unfortunately for the crew, we had to work in a tight space to extract what was left of the burger joint. We could see the other business owners lining up to oversee the operation, like a bunch of union guys working on a highway (heh). I just shrugged, picked up my maul; the life of a commercial demolition worker.
I woke up this morning with a killer back ache. Yesterday, we had some horrible weather in my area, and a storm dumped two feet of snow on us. I spent several hours yesterday evening digging my car out, and shoveling out my driveway and walkway. I could tell that my back was beginning to be sore as I finished the shoveling. But then something happened to ensure that my back would kill me today, I slipped on ice and fell down hard. I laid on the ground for several minutes, twisting in pain, and shivering from the cold. When I managed to finally get up, I hobbled into the house to discuss with my wife the possibility of moving to Florida. I guess the lesson here is to remember to treat your walkway with rock salt so ice doesn’t form, and so you don’t slip on ice and injure your back.
