but first . . .in the midst of putting things back together around here, I’ve learned a few things.
- This piece of plastic will go into the Hall of Fame for its ability to stop progress for 30 minutes while you try to fish it out of a ceiling fan.
- No matter how many trips you make to Home Depot, there’s almost always at least one thing you discover you need after you return home.
- It is better to wear old shoes when you spray primer, otherwise it looks like you have a strange skin disease on the bottom of your feet.
- It is possible to make your own ironing board, but there is no record for how long you can expect such an item to last. Time will tell, maybe.
- White is not consistently white everywhere.
- You can get a 1” X 12” X 4 foot board in a Mini Cooper without any problem.
- My husband and I both have a defiant side. He because it’s only a little – cut, tear, sting, blood, or bite and doesn’t need first aid. Me - because I think I can move furniture by myself until I can’t get it through the door. After a while, it’s just funny. As he has become fond of saying recently, “Never a dull moment in the Brame household.”
- These next little devices are the coolest things since sliced bread. Very handy when you have so many electrical cords you could actually create a map of the entire interstate system.
- When you are looking for something in a store, people will come up to you and ask you “Are looking for something?” And when you reply, “Yes, where is _____?” they say, “Well, I don’t actually work here.”
- And finally, it is so much easier to drill holes in a piece of board when the drill is not going in reverse.
So, here’s my question for you. Should I put things in place that I think I will be using consistently before I return to my studio work or should I begin working and then as I discover I need something, retrieve it and put it in a proper place? Then, once you’ve sorted that out, which came first - the chicken or the egg?
