You know how some days are just those days?
Today was one!
It's late. So, I'm gonna keep this short.
Projecting with the Man in Charge today. Not my project. His project. It has not gone well. For one, we found our problem to be much larger than we had expected. For another, we go at things completely differently. I'm going to leave out a lot of the details here, but we made two separate lists. We took our lists to Home Depot. We shopped.
They were playing the song Reunited by Peaches and Herb.
So cracked me up.
We were not united, nor were we reunited.
We came home. We unloaded the truck. We started working. We very quickly found out we were in bigger trouble than we thought. This led to a lot of discussion. Some calm. Some heated. This led to a break. A break inside. In separate rooms. We then went back outside to have more discussions. This resulted in a new list. Only one this time, and a trip back to Home Depot at 9:00 pm.
They were playing the song Stayin' Alive by the Bee Gees.
So cracked me up.
We came back home...alive.
My favorite brother is coming over to give us a hand on this project. Once we made it back in the house, I slipped off my work boots and opted for a pair of running shoes. I then proceeded to run back and forth in my house vacuuming and what not. All I had left to do was run to the barn and feed, set the coffee pot, and hit the sack.
I ran to the barn. The barn, where earlier the Man in Charge had pulled some trim work off the exterior and thrown it in the isle way. Said trim was in a pile with all the nails still in it. As I ran through the barn, throwing hay and getting the horses ready for the night, I tripped on said trim. As I tried to catch myself, I stepped on a piece of trim with precision aim. I say this because two nails went right through the bottom of my shoe into my left foot. I went down fast and hard. Cussing like you can not imagine. I actually had to use my other foot to kick the board free from my shoe. Partly because I wasn't in a position to do anything else. Partly because one nail sunk all the way in. Also partly because I couldn't look.
Here is where I would like to welcome all new readers out there to my blog. This was not my plan for our first meeting, but unfortunately, things like this happen all the time. Things so ridiculous, I could not make them up if I tried!
I'm glad you stopped by. It's so nice to meet you.
It is well after midnight. I am now going to take my throbbing foot, and go to bed.
Where I will spend a brief five hours.
Then, get up, drink large amounts of coffee, and go outside and use power tools.
