Welcome back!

Being behind another 30yr note is still better than finding yourself near retirement still renting.

Thanks guys.  2 days of moving and still not done.  Sore as hell too.  We still have the storage shed to move out which happens to be were my rack and bars are.  The movers wouldn't stop bitching about moving my deadlift platform but it is in the basement.  I'm working on saving up the energy and motivation necessary to move the weights out of my Jeep and into the basement.

You're paying them to move it, what do they have to bitch about?

This is the new way of the world and I'm sick of it.  Fucking take my empties back to the beer store and I get dirty looks from the people working there.  Its YOUR JOB to take back my empties, so why do you get pissed at ME for bringing them to you.  I didn't invent the fucking recycle program; I'm forced to use it.

The other day I went and bought beer and the chick brought me the wrong kind of beer.  I politely said "I asked for Lakeport Light, not Pilsner." She gave me the nastiest look and even so when she brought me the right beer I smiled and said "Thank you very much" and she just glared at me and turned around without saying a word.  Like I did something wrong to ruin her day.

WTF?

I said something to my wife about how I still feel cramped after moving all the equipment down to the new basement.  She said I can have the whole basement for my man-cave.  So my workout space doubled.  :D

Separate squat/bench and deadlift area.






No, the rack is not upside down.  I put the chin up bar on the bottom for now until it is bolted to the floor.  I need a lot of horse stall mat.

Thanks. I added another 300lb of plates today. Not as much carrying plates from the squat area to the deadlift area now. I'm so lazy.

Lazy is when you buy all those weights and they just sit there. ;)

That is life! Not lazy at all, you can actually rest between sets. I understand completely!
