Level again - desk delimma at hand

I called the leveling people early this morning and they were here this afternoon. Apparently I had a jack that "blew its head off" - lol It was so rusted out that the top snapped off, and my house must have had a bit of a jolt when it happened, because some little figurines that sit on those little decorative wall shelf things (Home Interior type stuff), were on the floor. These guys were really nice about it and blocked where that jack was and got me straightened up again. They noticed a door frame going into my kitchen wasn't square, and they even got that straight for me without me even asking! As for the jacks, they said that jacks are now basically illegal - that the regulations require the concrete blocks. Said it would be an additional $260'ish do that, and they wouldn't add extra to my leveling charge I've already paid. I really think I should do this now. The jacks are really on their last leg (no pun intended)! I have 32 they said -- well, now I have 31 and one block.









I've decided I'm going to use the cabinets I bought yesterday as storage tables. So, maybe tomorrow I will begin staining them. I have two or three places in my house where I might use them, most probably in my middle bedroom for storage of my LP collection and cassette tapes. That will free up some floor space in my new office I'll be creating. I'm not sure how I'll top them off, but perhaps a piece of that Formica pre-formed top they use in baths and kitchens, with the rise in the back would be good.

As for the door-top desk idea, the tables that I wanted to throw away might have to be used. This is my probably soon to be eliminated back room and my beloved office pre-Rita (boo-hoo! I want my room back!) Anyway, the tables are 24x24x27 high, so just the right size. Only they're painted white, and I don't know what I want to do about that yet. I'll keep two of the tables that weren't damaged, and throw the rest away. Maybe it would look nice to cover the door with white sheet Formica, and have the whole thing white. Where is Christopher Lowell when you need him!!
Well, first things first, I'll get the two pieces stained and polyurethaned. That will give me time to think about what I want to do on the desk.

If you think Hurricane Rita didn't have any power to it, take a look at what it did to my rusty ol' latch to my storage shed - bent that sucker plum backwards!!

Hi Sherry:
Stumbled onto your blog this morning. Very interesting writing. I was thinking about why I blog and decided it must have some therapeutic value. Anyway, after growing up in Beaumont and finishing at Lamar in 1961, I left and never moved back. Now sitting here in the North Georgia woods, I am thinking about moving home.Crazy idea. They say you can never go home.
Keep writing. You are doing a good job of it.
B.

Hi, Bryant -- thanks for leaving a post and saying hi! Wow, if you haven't been here since '61 - you would not know Beaumont, short of maybe the historical buildings you'd recognize. So much has changed since those days - alas - I liked it better then! But it is still home!
I'm headed to check out your site now - :)
