CrossFit is kicking my ass in the good way. I'm using modifications from an affiliate. Let's just say that Big Dawgs do the workout of the day as posted and I'm a puppy. I'm also learning Olympic lifts, which are fricking awesome. I don't have rubber plates or anywhere to chuck them, but I'm nowhere near the point where I'd have to dump the weight. It takes a lot of practice to get good enough with the form to move up in weight. O-lifts are more about technique than anything else, and I just got started.

The house is coming together. Sort of. I've been anally measuring closet and shelf space and shopping for organization stuff. I'm staying away from cheapo organization furniture with parts that move and/or are easily dinged. So far I'm happy with Closet Maid's 2x3 cubical cubby unit and fabric drawers. The cubby thing was easy to assemble and it seems pretty solid for basic laminated particle board furniture. The drawers actually hold their shape and look good. And they're assorted fun colors. Hooray. The cubby came with some junky pointlessness that I didn't bother with: cardboard backing squares, which I'm sure Chester would have pried off anyway, and useless plastic screw head cover caps. I just put felt circles over the screw heads that would otherwise touch the floor. ZOMG VISIBLE SCREW HEADS OHNOES THE FORTRESS ASPLODEY WHERE IS MY LIGHTBRASNER

I want to assemble the low shelves I got to go on the top closet shelf for better organized pants stacking space, but I need to do that on a blanket so I don't scratch the floor. Chester is sleeping on said blanket. I don't want to move him. Plus, I'm feeling lazy.

We're assembling a pile of unwanted movies and games. All y'all get first crack. Whatever nobody wants will go to Gamestop. I know we won't get much back, but none of the stuff in question is rare and the effort required to sell for a higher price just isn't worth it to us. Anyway, I'll post the list when we're done sorting.

Was it you guys that we loaned 'The Hunt for Red October' to? It's missing from the shelf.

Yes. I distinctly remember putting it in a DVD organizer.

We still haven't watched it. Boo. Want to remedy that in the near future?
