What in the world am I talking about, you ask, since it's been how many years (we won't go there) since I've been in college and there's no way I'm talking about a paper and pencil test (thank goodness). It all comes back to power tools, my friends.
I thought I was on the home-stretch yesterday and would have fun pictures of our wall treatment to show you guys today, but guess what? Several of my fancy little boards decided to jump off the wall all by themselves yesterday! I had put the puzzle together and decided they felt snug enough and "probably wouldn't fall" before I had a chance to nail them to the wall. Can we say stupid?
When I came back from my errands, 3 of the pieces were laying on the ground and well, let's just say they didn't survive the fall too well. darn! darn! darn! with a little foot stomping too!
I played doctor with one of the pieces and a little wood-filler but the diamond is barely hanging on. It's currently on life-support but I think I'm about to pull the plug. tears!
John walked into the kitchen this morning with a little smirk on his face as he looked at our patient. Then he says, "I think it's time to test your skills. It's all you today. We need another diamond." Yikes! There's just something different about doing this without him standing over my shoulder to make sure I'm not going to cut my fingers off. Then he says, "Think of it as your final exam. Let's see if you really learned how to use that saw!" Hence, when the sweating begins...
So I'm off to have a date with Mr. Miter. Prayers would be appreciated. ha! Blogging and projects would be kind of hard to do without fingers, don't 'cha think?
Have a happy weekend, friends!
