I don't have to get him a birthday or father's day gift now right? *pic heavy*

Seriously though. I got up at 2pm on Monday. Went to work that night and did my usual 12hr shift. Only it was really busy and I spent about 10hrs slinging 50lb bags. Not exaggerating it was close to 1,000 bags by the time I was done. Then I came home Tuesday morning, had a shed built, cleaned and painted the garage, and went to bed around 10pm last night. I don't know why I'm awak so I'm gonna brag a bit then go to bed. The before pics are not a real before. I had already done some cleaning and moving things around. But we bought this house just at a year ago and have been busy and just got around to doing this. We are "park in the garage" people. I also got the garage door opener about a month ago. I'm not finished. I have to finish organizing and taking things to the shed. But almost there!

Now a few weeks before the before pics you couldn't even walk in there. Here's now:

The shed that allows me to get lawn equipment and larger tools out of the garage.

Kinda hard to see. there's a shelf up high. Stuff in the box will go up there and the box will go to trash. The boy will be kept in the house though.

What my garage looks like this very moment. A dresser that goes upstairs very soon, still some trash in back right corner, and the stuff in the middle will go to the shed. then vehicles go in here!

a closer view. Still have to paint the ceiling and all that wood is gone as in previous pic.

Alrighty thanks for looking! Also realize I live in Texas and we have spiders so this is a big safety issue as well. I feel safer already. I'm going for a nap and will revisit on my phone a little. But seriously this counts as father's day and b-day right? J/k I'll get something small because we spent a bit on all this.

I have missed it. Especially during storms. I'm at the window waiting for hail to pulverize my cars. We live in a good neighborhood but people don't shop in their own. We've had some activity and (thanks to my brother leaving it open) stuff stolen from our garage. Lots of stuff. So I finally made this a priority. My old house you'd never seen our cars in the driveway. Ever. We just got behind moving and having the baby last year.

It looks great! I think that counts for at least one present.

I'm still voting two. We'll go with a new shed AND a clean and painted garage. Lol.
