I installed my first screen door today. Started off by putting down all the seats in the Benz, went to Menards, shoved it in the car, because it barely fit, and brought it home… I didn’t start unboxing the door until 3:30, and finished about 7:30. Something that should be started earlier then 3:30 in the winter, when it gets dark at 5. I didn’t realize that I would be drilling that much, and my drill battery couldn’t handle it, so had to make a stop at Walmart and get a drill. But now that I am finally done, except I need to add the hydraulic yet… Figured that can wait until tomorrow. In all it was a fun experience, cant wait to start the basement.
Just thought I would say Hi. Not much going on here other then a little snow. Its suppose to snow/sleet/ice or something really bad tomorrow. Kayla got a mp3 player, maybe she should write a review about her Sansa Fuze. I got 2 more days until winter shutdown at work, Then I will have two weeks off, yippie.
My dog is officially a sissy, she will hold her paws up when outside in the snow… its funny.
I hooked up my 22 inch monitor, along side my 17inch monitor, a bit overkill for at home, but its nice.
I am contemplating graduate school from ISU. Well see how motivated I am.
Thats all folks.
I went out and bought a new monitor, a Acer 22″ Widescreen LCD ( AL2216W ). Its a pretty nice monitor. Seems to be about 1.5 times bigger then my 17″. I know you all want to know the specifications 😉
1680 x 1050 Resolution
700:1 Contract Ratio
5ms Response Time
So I didn’t have a chance to compare it at the stores, because BestBuy didn’t even have a display setup. But its so much nicer then my old monitor. The hardest thing is getting use to the widescreen, this is the first time I have used a widescreen for my desktop. So I would recommend this monitor for 169.99
So I may be a week late, but figured I would post anyway. We went back for thanksgiving, and Kayla and I separated our ways and went to our families thanksgiving. Its crazy going back, all my cousins are getting so old… and married lol. On friday and Saturday, Kayla and I went to the Bars in Yankton, SD, and meet up with an old friend of ours. Then on the way back from yankton we finished in Bloomfield, NE both nights. We also made a pit(drink) stop in Crofton, NE on Saturday. Crofton is the place were Kayla and I originally meet. It was nice to get out and enjoy some time to ourselves. I would also like to mention Kayla got trashed on Saturday, I am surprised she didn’t get the brown bottle flu. We were going to come back Saturday, but seen it was snowing, so we decided to stay another day. Well it was a horrible drive. The interstate was covered in ICE from Des Moines,IA to Iowa City, IA. Slow and steady and we made it… but seen to many cars in the ditch for my liking. We did stop in Clive,IA for Qdoba. They have some awesome Three Cheese Queso. I had a Pork Burrito, it wasn’t as good as the burritos in Rapid City, SD at Qdoba, or it could be I have been eating Panchero’s Burritos. So yeah… that was my crazy Thanksgiving weekend.
