What Am I doing?

This week has been very productive, which is rare, as I always seem to make plans put off tasks that need doing. So this week, I cleaned out the garage, mowed the lawn(s), raked out an area in the backyard and planted grass seed, and Michelle sold a bunch of crap, which is always awesome. We also make major progress on our office project, which has been on hold since I started the series, “Redecorate for Zero Dollars“. We’ve still been able to fund it all for free, but just have a few finishing touches, then will do the awesome reveal. Let’s just say I’m typing this post in the new office, and it feels AMAZING!

Big Football I have also been having fun with fantasy football this season. I joined a few teams, and am trying to figure the whole thing out (and failing miserably). So, since I completely suck at it, I figured I’d start a mock-football site showing people how to completely ROCK at fantasy football. Little do people know that I am making the entire thing up. If you are brave enough to venture out and enjoy some football jokes, you can find it HERE.

How was YOUR week?



Joe from Stacking Benjamins linked to me because I apparently linked to him last week. I want to announce to everyone that it was a big mistake, because I would never link to that site. Ever. Not even right now….

  2. The mistake was totally mutual. I could never link to–nor leave a comment on–this disgusting site.

  5. Thanks for the shout out Jake. Fantasy football is one of those things I both love and hate. Most of the time it ends up in frustration, but I still subject myself to the torture year after year.

    • This is my first year, so I figured I’d make an authority site and have people follow me, because I obviously have all the expertise you need to win. If you want to win, I’d click through and check out the site. 😉

  6. I wouldn’t link to Stacking Benjamins either. What a site ;). Thank you for the mention and I hope you had a great weekend.

  7. Fantasy football is so hard to figure out! This is my second season trying it out, and once you think you know how your match up is going to turn out, there are injuries and other things that change everything.

    • My site focuses on how to win. Also, it’s a complete joke, and is actually the worst advice you could ever follow. So you should totally read it and follow :)

  8. Wow, wish I could also snap into that level of productivity :)
    Thanks for the mention!

    • Just takes getting up early and showering, I think. Something about that gets me motivated. Oh, and also being sick of looking at our messy office!
