Tuesday Time to Tackle: If You Give a Guy Some Storage Shelves

If you give a guy some storage shelves, he's going to want to put them in the garage. 

In order for them to fit in the garage, he'll want to move the freezer.

In order to move the freezer, he'll need to empty the contents.

In order to empty the contents, he'll need to fill the coolers. 
 
In order to get the freezer through the door, he'll need to take the door off the hinges.  

Once the freezer is in its new spot, it will need to be refilled.  The guy will need to bring the coolers back to the freezer. 

He'll put the door back on its hinges.

Once the freezer is in its new spot, and the door is back on its hinges, the guy can start assembling the shelves. 

When the first shelf is put together, the guy will want to put it against the wall.  

When he sees where it needs to go, he'll realize he needs to clear a spot for it. He'll get the dolly and move stuff out of the way.  

When the floor in that spot is clear, he'll put the shelf against the wall.  

He'll want to set up the second shelf.  And chances are, if he wants to set up the second shelf, he's going to want a clear spot to put it in.

  1. I SOOO identify with this. I get paralyzed just thinking about the logistics to accomplish some of my projects. Thanks for a good chuckle.

  2. Best spoof on that book I've ever seen! Hilarious. How much of those freezer beef meals did you still have in the freezer? :)

    1. Oh, thank you! It felt like we still had a whole cow's worth of meals--there was no way that freezer was budging an inch without us first unloading the weight of the food.

  4. If only Richard wanted shelves in the garage! Great post -- my garage really needs a good cleaning.

  5. Awesome! Here's a major difference between your mouse and mine; my mouse would have abandoned the whole thing halfway through and there would have shelves in the middle of the floor with all the stuff he was clearing out in heaps around it, and he would be sitting in the living room eating a cookie.

    1. LOL. We're not completely done with all the organizing, but the shelves are up and the floor is cleaner than it's been in years!

It's #RootsTech Giveaway Time!

In February of 2018, not knowing exactly what to expect, I attended RootsTech for the first time. What I learned is that RootsTech has something for everyone, from the most beginner of beginners to professional DNA genealogists. If you are interested in your own family story, come to RootsTech! RootsTech offers over 300 classes, amazing keynote speakers, an Expo Hall packed with all sorts of vendors, and evening cultural events. 

After an enjoyable experience in 2018, I returned in 2019, and even got my husband, John, to come one of the days to hear Saroo Brierley give a keynote address. 

Speaking of keynote addresses, this week RootsTech just announced that one of the speakers for 2020 will be David Hume Kennerly, a Pulitzer Prize winning photographer. I can't wait to hear his story!

RootsTech 2020 will celebrate its 10th anniversary, and is bound to be the best one yet! I have been delighted to be accepted as an official RootsTech ambassador. One of the perks is that I received a c…

Ten Things of Thankful: Dad's Influence Edition

Here in the United States, it is Father's Day weekend. I did not realize until recently that Father's Day was not officially made a holiday until 1972. 1972! Now, while I realize that many people consider 1972 eons ago, I do not. I'm glad that fathers have a day of recognition now, because they surely deserve acknowledgement. 
I thought for this week's Ten Things of Thankful post, I would list ten lessons I'm thankful my dad taught me.
My dad is a teacher. Not only did he impart his knowledge to countless junior high aged kids throughout his career, he taught--and still teaches--my siblings and me. He is not a preachy teacher; he's a humble man whose lessons I feel like I learned through osmosis.
When he would get home from work, we'd all sit down as a family for supper. Often, our phone would ring, and on the other end of the line would be a parent of one of my dad's students. 
Hello, Mrs. _______. How can I help you? . . . (an irate woman's voice is h…

Ten Things of Thankful: Summer Strawberries and Procrastinated Projects

You would think that by the time a person reaches my age, she would not be surprised by the passing of time, yet I find myself nearly constantly amazed that a certain amount of time has passed--whether that be a week, month, year, or couple of decades.
Earlier this year, I planted a garden. Yesterday I harvested my first strawberry. Earlier this year, I also planted fuchsia starts, and now the flowers are blooming. How is that possible? (And why am I surprised?)
Sometime around the turn of the century (and it still seems strange to use that phrase about the year 2000), we bought a circa 1935 dresser. It needed some TLC, but had a cool curvy front. This past week, I finally got around to applying some Restor-A-Finish and Feed-N-Wax, and now the dresser still looks old, but not dilapidated. I still need to apply some hide glue to some loose pieces, but I'm counting progress as a win.
For as long as I can remember, I've been a saver of papers. It some respects, this is good. I'v…
