Today started like any other…

October 25, 2011

But then late in the day work threw me some irritating curve balls but i didn’t get them addressed because I had to hustle home to give the borrowed welder back to the person who loaned it to me then I figured as long as I’m home early and have daylight why not run over the Home Depot and pick up the last of the 1″ pvc needed to finish the hoop house so when I got there they only had one piece which wasn’t nearly enough so I got even more frustrated and stormed out and came home again to find the outside cat had been let in by accident and was squaring off with the inside cat and didn’t appreciate being swept out the side door with size 10 2/2 Justin boots which caused me to bruise my forearm on the door frame so i stomped out to the garden to find something to do only to be called back in since I promised to grill the flatiron steaks which turned out to be pretty damn good after all was said and done but I was still agitated since I had accomplished none of the tasks I wanted to get done and it was dark already but fortunately I had a drop cord and a shop light outside already so I set up a night work space and dug up a 12′ trench for raspberry bushes then decided I couldn’t stand looking at the 7′ tall rotting stump that had served as a corner for a yard implement shed that is going to be replaced so IΒ  grabbed my axe

then beat it absolutely to frickin pieces.

And I feel much better now.


How was your day?

    We all have that sort of day sometimes. It sure is nice to be able to take your frustrations out on something.

      The next day was better- I sent an email to Home Depot corporate and asked what was up with inventory (no 1″pvc for 3 days). I got an email response within 30 minutes, followed by a service call from HQ followed by a call from the store manager. She wanted me to accept a $25 store credit for my troubles and apologized.

      Yeah I think I’ll accept the credit lol.

    Splitting wood always makes me feel better too.

      Yeah that’s another reason I should get that wood stove I’ve been considering. πŸ˜‰
