Okay…this is sad! I’ve only had 12 posts on LJs in almost a year! I think I am working too hard and not taking enough time for myself and my hobby! My wife and I own a toy store and we are in the process of launching a new website My wife is busy because on top of the store she also teaches Dance and they are getting ready for their recital. I am busy because on top of the store I am also the General Manager at a sports bar in our town as well. So I work almost every day and every night. Oh yeah did I mention that we also have 2 kids? Busy busy busy. I do get to play golf every Monday night in a local golf league but that’s about it.

I am trying to get back into the garage where I can create something…anything…outta wood! It is so relaxing to just be in the shop and be totally engaged in the process of woodworking. I forget about everything else as I cut, hammer, measure, screw and glue wood together.

I’m trying….I’ll let you know how it goes.
