We’ve been getting ready to put the house on the market – all part of the plan to go separate ways. So I’m at a crossroads of sorts. Not too concerned about the future, maybe a little apprehensive but also kind of excited too. The last month or so has been about fixing up houses and other loose ends to prepare for the next chapter in life.
Had a little misadventure with dishwashers. We’ve had one in the house since we bought the place, but it hasn’t worked worth a shit since some time soon after we moved in. It just stopped cleaning dishes. It ran, it made dishwasher noises, but every time you’d open the door the food was still stuck to the plates etc.
So I thought, lets buy a cheapo off Kijiji (on line classifieds) and stick that in there and then we can sell the place with a working dishwasher. We found one and drove out to have a look. Forked out $140 for the used dishwasher. Got it in today. Guess what? The bastard leaks! Ok. Pull it out again, see if there is something obvious. Of course its all this plastic moulded crap with wires coming out of it so there is no hope of fixing this thing.
We reluctantly decided to go down to the hardware store and buy a new one. There were a couple of models for $400. Of course they don’t stock them and have to wait a week. Ok, which ones do they stock? One for $650, and one really high end one. So we had to make an executive decision. We bought it.
Got the new shiny one home and glad to say everything seems to work ok so far. Just another little adventure in spending time and money to get ready to sell this house. Such is life, eh?
Ok, enough bullshit, here’s my work out, and I lost my print out of my work outs so I was going from memory!
Squats – set of 10 to warm up, then 5 sets, 5 reps.
Ezy bar curls, 3 sets of 10 reps.
Alternating dumbbell bicep curls. 3 sets of 20.
Cable tricep pull downs, 3 sets of 10.
Crunches, elbows to knees. sets of 50, 26, 26.
Calf raises. 3 sets of 10.
The other night I got a work out after work too. In this one I did:
Power clean-squats to overhead press. 10 singles.
Incline dumbbell bench press. 5 sets of 5.
Close hand push up feet on bench. 3 sets of 15.
Lat raises 3 sets of 10.
Alternating front raises 3 sets of 20.
From the other night. Earlier this week.
