Working for the Weekend

My crazy “Ike” week finally ended on Friday and it couldn’t have come at a better time. The weather was fantastic and I had some work to do on the house. I went to Lowe’s Friday after work and picked up some 2×6’s and some flashing to fix the hole on the back of my house. The total ended up being $38.01. $38.01? It only took me 38 dollars and a little bit of sweat to recover from Ike. We are very fortunate.

On Saturday morning I was supposed to go bike riding with Stu down Buffalo Bayou but my jaw was hurting. I can’t decide if I got lockjaw from drinking the water when I wasn’t supposed to or I chewed too much gum on Friday. Probably too much gum… Later that morning, Terri and I went to family lunch with the Carrolls. We initially picked Luby’s in Deer Park but it was closed due to hurricane damage so we ended up going to Case Ole in La Porte. Once we were there my niece introduced me to “Ouch Charlie!”. YouTube it, it’s good for a quick laugh. After lunch my mother came over and helped me patch up the house. When got started my mother noticed that I didn’t purchase treated lumber. She suggested we go back to Lowe’s and get some. It was madness. It took us two hours to buy three pieces of lumber. After getting the wood home and priming it, we patched the hole in a few hours. We still had one more issue to resolve. I bought the wrong size flashing and it didn’t match. Knowing how obsessive-compulsive I can be, my mother agreed to accompany me to Lowe’s one last time. This time we were in and out in five minutes. Once the flashing was in place we were pretty much finished. I cleaned up while my mother caulked. Later Terri grilled up some hotdogs on the George Foreman and we settled in to watch LSU route Auburn. Terri kept telling me to use my “inside voice” but to no avail. I kept screaming like a drunken sailor every time LSU made a misstep or Auburn made a good play. LSU ended up winning so the night ended on a good note.

On Sunday Terri and I just lounged around and watched old episodes of “Cold Case”. I tagged a ton of mp3’s that I have wanted to import into my library. I am not anywhere close to being finished with that task. I just keep chipping away at it in small increments. Later that evening we went to Boudreaux’s for chicken fingers. After dinner we returned home and watched the new Louisiana vampire series, “True Blood”, on HBO.
