At least I have a fallback career

If I ever get fed up with corporate America I think I can still fall back on over- charging people for home improvement stuff that they're incapable of doing. And by incapable I typically mean afraid of because it turns out that 99% of handyman type of work is really not very hard in practice, but understanding what to do is so scary to many people that they just hire someone at $100 an hour. Either that or they only have 5 minutes available in their day to eat, sleep, and shower so they are forced to hire someone or it never gets done. Wait, what was I talking about? Oh yah... me in the front yard with a big ass tile saw (really, I was talking about that).

The bathroom got tiled yesterday and the facebookers of the world even saw some rare photo evidence. Hopefully I can get the grout in tonight so then I'm not holding up the plumbers anymore. Dad starts the finish staircase today so we'll see how that goes.

And on the photo thing, I know it's become a running joke now, but typically when I upload photos to google from home, it takes an obnoxiously long time to even do a batch of 5 pictures. I either need to size them down or get a better computer or something, but regardless, it takes too much of the time I'm using to do the work. They will get posted eventually and if you're reading this you'll probably be invited to an open house thingy when we're done. Stay tuned...
