What Did You Get for Christmas?

By: Mr. Wilson on December 28, 2009
I feel like I haven't sat down at the computer in ages. And I haven't, really. I turned off the computer on Thursday morning and haven't been back until now. That's a pretty darn impressive break for me. Whether or not you celebrate Christmas, I hope you all had as great a long weekend as I did. My biggest and best Christmas present was a gift I got myself. I bought several heavy-duty shelving units from Menards, assembled them, and totally reorganized the storage area of our basement. What once was an ugly series of piles has become a thing of beauty. And there is storage space to spare! There are two related perks, too: I was able to clean up other areas of the house; and I discarded a whole bunch of junk that isn't even of garage sale quality. I still have a little more housecleaning to do -- about one more weekend day's worth -- but I feel so much better about the house right now. Next project for The Missus and me: remodeling our bathroom. A reminder to all you Lincolnites: If you or somebody you know does minor electrical, plumbing, and/or general remodeling work, drop me a note. It isn't a super-complicated remodel, but it is a full floor-to-ceiling job that we want somebody's help with. If the price is right, you can have the whole job. Robbie made out like a bandit this Christmas. Trains and cars and Legos and books and games ... sheesh. The Missus and I tried to keep Christmas small and reasonable, but family and friends pretty much blew that out of the water. The thing I'm most excited about is Robbie's new playroom in the basement. It's not fancy -- far from it! -- but it's all his, and it's a great size for a kid his age. Oh, and I scooped a lot of snow. Darn snow drifts in front of the garage. Sheesh. How was your holiday weekend?


See what your friends and neighbors have to say about this.

I don’t know if you go to church at Berean or not; if you do, you might know Drew Peterson, he does the sort of remodeling work you’re looking for, here’s his cell/business number: 402-202-9377—you can tell him I gave you his contact info; I’ll also give him a heads-up as well.
