Last Saturday I was able to help my son and daughter-in-law with the kitchen remodel. We installed butcher-block counter tops, a new apron sink, dishwasher, upper cabinet, microwave, as well as a new garbage disposal and wiring. At the end of the day I was pooped — and smelled really bad.
I have to say I was happy to be of use, and it reminded me of my early years in my dad’s cabinet shop where this sort of work was my daily fare, but did I say I was tired at the end of the day? And when I woke up on Sunday, already late for church, I was reminded that I really love my day job … writing about woodworking. I wake up much more chipper and not nearly as sore!
