The Dh and I made a Home Depot run this weekend to get a new door knob for the front door. The key’s been sticking something fierce and we needed to replace it. For some reason the upcoming Super Bowl raised the Dh’s testosterone level just enough to make him *want* to do home improvements. So we go, and find one-one that I might add we managed to get re-keyed so we didn’t even have to change out all the keys we have (it’s the little things that excite me so).
The bad thing about waiting to get the lock re-keyed, we had to walk around the store for 10-15 minutes. We now have a list of things to go back for and do next weekend (like change out another lock, change out all the faucets and change out the light on the back porch-no good deed goes unpunished, right?!?). Still, we got home and changed out the front lock in no time-something so satisfying to do work around the house.
I didn’t get much of anything else done though, it takes a lot of brain effort to decide to changed out the lock, go to the store and get said lock, come home and do the work and then bask in the completion of a job well done. It wipes you out… And then of course the Super Bowl was on, I had to watch all those commercials (though for the most part I was underwhelmed). And… don’t get me started on the kid’s car that died… we haven’t even tackled that darn problem yet.
How was your weekend? Did you accomplish anything? (Did you like any of the touted commercials?) What are your plans for next weekend? Will you be as busy as us with our new Home Depot to-do list?
