Well, we crawled out of the dark ages here with our local cable company finally offering CBS and Fox in HD so I can view games in crystal clarity, but I still faced the problem of missing critical plays during bathroom breaks because I'm too incompetent to figure out how to run my DVR box.
So, finally talked the wife into letting me install a toilet right in front of the TV so I never have to miss a second of any game. It looks kind of unusual in front of the living room and will take some getting used to, but what's a fan supposed to do? I'll have to hang a big mirror on the opposite wall for when I'm taking a dump.
Actually, we're putting laminate hardwood flooring throughout the house. I want to see one of those HGTV teams skip the perfectly square new house and install this shit quickly in a 100-year old house with crooked walls and about 20 1x6" door frames that are hard as rock and have to be undercut individually so the flooring can slide beneath them. I've gone through $60 just in saw blades alone.
I've started calling this place The Labor Camp: took a couple of days off work to get stuff done, haven't taken a bath for three days and spend 14 hours a day painting, taking out a house full of old carpet and laying this stuff, in addition to a re-gut and renovation of the bathroom.
Even though it's seriously cutting into my riding time, it will be worth it in the end. Amazingly, the wife and I haven't gotten into one serious argument throughout the entire process.
