I just added a handful of projects to my list. One curse of having all this time outside of the shop... I’d better get back in there before I keep finding more inspiration than I know what to do with!

Arghhhh, I just thought of another one I forgot to add to the list!

Lists are a blessing and a curse. I love the organizational feel I get, knowing exactly what I have on my plate. I hate looking at my list and realizing my plate is overflowing. But what a great feeling it is to strike a line through something on that list!

We had the flooring installer over today. He said we did a great job of scraping the bathroom floor! All he had to do was sweep a little. He laid down two coats of leveling compound (it was a pretty rough floor). He has to do one more coat before he puts down the linoleum and he’ll do both of those things on Sunday. After that, I get to turn from a woodworker to a carpenter/handyman when I put in the new toilet, base cabinet, sink, and towel bars. And then I get to try and figure out where the drain is leaking and how to fix it. That’s just the tip of my list…

I keep very short lists. I know the next few things that I have to make – commitments to friends and family, and I have a few new ideas I want to try out. But totaling both lists would not exceed 1/2 dozen items, I intend to keep this passion a hobby, not a burden.

I hear you Don… I like short lists… but If I don’t keep the long ones, I’ll spend too much time trying not to forget things (Had less of a problem with this when before college!). Actually I tend to keep remembering the same things, until the time comes when I have some free time, and forget everything it is I’d like to do. (then I hate wasting that “found time)

Ethan, I’m sure you’ll do a great job. I had a woodworking teacher who thought that furniture makers made better handypersons (not professionally, but for themselves) because they took the time do do things so precicely. You’re house is gonna be a work of art!
