I got what I wished for, but slowly regretting it. It’s already June and half the year has gone because really, it feels like April. I’m hoping we have a mild summer where it isn’t too hot, but is just cool enough. Those long sunny days I wished for, I hope you’re here to stay.
The week blew past me rather quickly so here’s all that I can remember:
Mid-week evening ride with a pit stop @ JJ Bean on Main.
Hard parkin’ it at Tigers Drink House with my old Athena. She’s running full SRAM Force.
My uncle came up from San Diego with his fiancee over the weekend. The family got to meet her for the very first time and it seems as if everyone likes her a lot (which is rare because my family can sometimes be a pack of judgmental pricks.) She was very nice and well mannered, which I suppose jives well with the family. The wedding will be next year so we’re all excited to head down for the wedding reception! We’re all very happy and excited for them both!
On other news, I’ve been growing tired of having to manually open and close the garage door. I will openly admit that is is now becoming an absolute chore and it’s really a pain in the ass. I seriously don’t have the time and patience for that shit anymore. Let alone, the number of weirdos who walk up and down my alley? Fuck. It’s a risk I’d rather not take. So what it boils down to are a few options at hand:
– Replace only necessary parts on the garage door itself and repair the garage door opener. This is the most budget conscious choice.
– Replace only the garage door opener. I could do it myself, but I do have concerns regarding the existing mounting position and I can’t help but question its structural integrity. The previous owners of our house had the guy next door jerry rig this ghetto setup. My intuition is telling me that it will fail and I will pay dearly for it. I’d have to hire in a contractor to do this.
– Replace both the garage door itself and the opener. This is the most expensive option, but for the long-term, is worth the peace of mind. The door we have kind of sucks to be honest.
So there you have it. My week’s update of first world problems.
Oh, and before I forget, I had coffee with an old classmate of mine from high school – Silvia. I haven’t seen her since the 10 year reunion but prior to that, I never really got to know her. On our way home and I asked, “How is it possible that you’re single? You’re pretty cute!” She replies, “I know!…Oh wait!!! Hey!” She ran right into that one.
Funny girl. :)
Oh yeah, I have to order hood struts for my car. I should have done that last week. Damn it.
