So it’s been a while. Got all busy with life and work… and my shop has been out of commission.

Well… as we speak… the guys are out there working on installing the new garage door. Supposedly… that’s the last thing and it will all be done. (I say “supposedly” because the “three day” job started last Monday and today 10 work days later and it’s not done). There has been a lot of disappointment with the work… HOWEVER… Once they pack up and are out of my hair… I’m going to do a happy dance!!!!

I remember what those are. I used to have them all the time. I want to get back in my shop. It gives me my sanity. I miss giggling and doing happy dances in my shop. Can’t wait till they are done!!!!

AND… it goes without saying… I miss being on LJ’s!

Hey, Sis, keep us posted. When you get back into action I’ll put together a care package of sticks for you.

Just don’t let anyone use them to heat the place with this time. Bwahahahaha!

Good to see you’re back. There is a lot of lamenting by old timers about the kids today. Not that you are a kid, but you are a woman and younger than most of the Ol’ F-rts on this site. It gives hope. LOL!

Your garage/shop is just a bigger box. Mistakes are our way of learning. I’m continuing to make mistakes! Hopfully not the same ones.

If you took some pictures of the reconstruction, and have the time, maybe post a blog of this adventure?

I’m looking forward to your projects.

Where did you find those carpenter? Cracker Jack Box? We had a new 16’ garage door installed that took the place of (2) 8’doors in 1 day! 2 guys put in a new header, door frame, door and trim. They also built a 2 car garage for the neighbor after the concrete was ready in 3 days. Just saying.

There are a wide range of folk on LJ’s. I’m really glad to see women increase in representation. Just see too many old timers lamenting. Angie is closer in age to both women and kids as she can understand them and maybe inspire them.

Oh yeah, I am closer in age to the guys I was referring to that I am to Angie. LOL!
