This last week I spent doing errands and chores that I had put off for months. It was one jam-packed week.
I finally picked up my rental S.A.D. Light Box for the winter months. It is very expensive to rent at $50 a month, so I only signed up for two months. I am going to try it out and then do research on purchasing my own. They are hundreds of dollars, however, if they work it is worth it. I’d say I need one from Late-October to Mid-March, that is on average about 5 months a year at $50 a month, for a total of $250. It is definitely a better investment to purchase one rather than rent. But, I am going to rent for two months to see if it helps at all. If not, I am out $100 not $250+.
I also stained my deck, finally. I didn’t do a very good job. I started using a brush to paint every board and those boards look really nice, but to finish the whole deck would have taken me days. I ended up using a large pad to get multiple deck boards done at the same time. They don’t look nearly as good. I will probably re-stain the deck in the spring and use a brush. I have posted the before and after pictures for your viewing pleasure.
This upcoming week is going to be another killer at work as I have a big deadline on the 18th. I am supposed to present my work at a meeting out-of-town that day as well, but, lo and behold I am now on jury duty. It is supposed to be random, but I seem to always end up with jury duty in the years I am eligible.
It is going to be rough week.
