Some days I wish “doing a little work around the house” meant rearranging knick knacks on my antique console into a new and seasonal vignette. Or planting a few annuals into my readied flower beds amongst the perennials.
This weekend has been consumed, in my usual eight minute increments, by tools: chainsaw, maddox, circ saw, spade. While digging a nee garden bed I managed to blank out the fact that we have an invisible fence to keep the dogs in and I chopped right through the cable, so my wife will be spending her afternoon repairing that.
Two steps forward, one step back.
