Wow! Yet another week has flown by here at the Wheelie HQ, and yes, still in our old space. I know how last week we were all like, "Oh Em Gee Guys! This is our last week at the old office," but now we're like "Psych!"
Turns out there was a lot that needed to be done before we could bust a move over to the new office. Walls needed torn down, paint needed thrown up, and we still had to work on projects like the move wasn't even happening.
Then once Monday hit we had paint buckets purchased, floor paint going down, and a lot of beer and pizza to get us through the first night of painting. We were all pretty tired when 11:30pm rolled around, and we were extremely unhappy with the color combination we picked out. We'd spent a lot of time picking out an orange to compliment a really nice gray, but once the paint was up, we realized they gave us the wrong colors, completely wrong, and we had to do something about it. So on Tuesday, after Dan threw down a coat of grey paint on the floors upstairs, he busted out the main accent wall and put a couple of glorious coats of a new blue paint on that Lisa had picked up earlier in the morning. Things were starting to look up.
Why is painting so hard sometimes? it's kind of funny to think about all the run around and craziness we went through just to get some paint on the walls, but in the end it turned out great. And thanks to Sonny, from Paddlefish Sports, we had new trim, baseboards, flooring, and a sink! You rock Sonny! Thank you for all your hard work in such a short amount of time. We're so happy to have you slinging paddleboards out of the yard all summer!
But this leads us to today, Friday! The best day of the week not only because we intend to shred on our days off, but because we officially got to move in, and boy has it been an adventure.
This morning Niles, our new awesome intern, rolled in and start loading up his car with lots of Wheelie office stuff. He made several trips and helped me a lot by getting our old office organized and relocated less than a mile away. You rock, Niles! Beers on us next week!
After lunch, we realized everything had been moved over to the new space, except two very large, and very heavy items. Dan's desk, and my desk. I'm not sure if you folks remember my post back in September when we discovered these two crazy large desks, but if you'd like to read all about how we got them up into our tiny office before you read how we got them down from our tiny office, check it out HERE!
So this brings us to this afternoon. Everything had been moved, but the desks. Dan, Lisa, and myself headed over to the old office to load them up just dreading taking them down the stairs again. But it literally took us like 10 minutes to get both desks down the stairs and out to the trucks! How could this be? We high-fived one another, loaded them up, and said PEACE OUT, to the old office. Not as hilarious as our original desk post, but we were pleased as pie to find out that it wasn't as hard carrying them down the stairs as it was lifting them up.
Thank you to Dan, Lisa, Travis, Sonny & Kim,
The Month Is Flying By! How are Your Energy Levels?
Okay, so our theme of the month is Energy, and with the month coming very close to an end, let's check in on your energy levels.
For us, our energy is running a little short, but only this week really. Things have been nuts, and naturally, after working eight hours and then painting for another five to six hours, we're going to be a little tired and less energetic. But I'm curious about all of you. Think about what you can do to keep that energy flowing. It's still January, the year is young, and there's so much time left to get going on those projects you've been thinking about for the last year.
Keep on truckin', have a great weekend, and we'll see you next week for another round of A Wheelie__Fill in the blank__Week.
