New moped(not mine)...home renovation

I recently helped out a good friend by picking up a moped while I was out of town. We now have another Puch Magnum in the DAM Riders, Dayton Area Moped Riders. He was so excited to sit on it the first time...he literally had goosebumps. It needs some work done to it because it is a mix of parts from several bikes, but give it some time and searching and that thing will be pristine by next spring. Meanwhile I have a few parts on their way to complete my Magnum. It was missing a few bearings in the front forks and without those then it is kinda silly to try to go 30+ mph on a rickety front end bike. So now it is basically hurry up and wait to get to work on my bike.

I also sold our foosball table to a coworker because we need more room in the house. I am also going to try to sell one of our couches in one of the bedrooms so that we can re-arrange the house. We basically have three bedrooms, one is an actual bedroom, another room has dressers, a couch, and the treadmill, and the third room is the computer room and had the foosball table. We are moving the treadmill to the computer room, getting rid of the couch and moving our current bed into the other room. We are also moving the other dressers from the bedroom to the new guest room because we have a new bedroom set on the way along with a bed. I am super excited to get a new mattress because the old one was a bit too firm for my liking. We are also going to be re-painting all of the rooms during the moves so it is going to be a pretty busy time around the house over the next few weeks. All this while studying for my CBM test later this fall.

Another warm day today and yet warm again tomorrow with highs in the mid and upper 80's. We could see a spotty shower Saturday afternoon, but our best chance for rain will come overnight Saturday into Sunday morning. We should clear out slowly through the day Sunday and only dealing with the low 80's for the start of the workweek with plenty of rain. I have been keeping an eye on the first few days of September because the models are showing a hurricane developing and likely bringing us rain to the Ohio Valley. I will keep an eye on that, but if you have a vacation planned for the gulf at the end of August, be prepared to possibly change your plans. I will keep ya posted because this may be our first landfall hurricane since 2008. Enjoy the weekend, stay dry tomorrow night, and have a good one!
