talent, skill, and the lack thereof

my carpentry IQ is terribly low. almost embarrassing, in fact. my father-in-law must think I’m an idiot. The good news is that despite my lack of carpentry prowess, the deck continues to progress. He and Chad have been dragging me along and it should be finished next week.

Speaking of things I am better at, we have a softball game tonight against a team who is arguably the best in the league. Obviously we will be trying to win, but it will be a moral victory if we can take the game the full 7 innings and avoid the mercy rule.

took me an hour and a half to get to work this morning…construction traffic…blech.
