It's one of those good-news/not-so-good news situations. The not-so-good
news is I've become redundant at work. Yup...this is the very same job I
left the US and returned to Canada for just over a year ago. No, I'm not
pleased about it and no, I have no idea what I'm going to be when I grow up.
For now, I decided enough is enough and as we won't be able to purchase a
home now, we may as well "move in" to the rental we've been in since we got
here....yup, that means a shop.
The house has a large 2-car garage and after three very full very long and
very hard days of shelf construction, box moving, car moving and then doing
it all again three more times, I have the beginning of a shop on the go.
I'll have to re-wire the place, and the lighting sucks, but the table saw
actually made whirring noises yesterday for the first time in almost 16
months and I swear it all but grabbed that first stick of wood outta my
hands just to have a go at it. Later today I'll start the "small tools"
un-packing and even though the place is cold and a bit drafty...it's calling
loudly and waiting for sawdust.
I'm investigating all possibilities right now, including "doing my own
thing". If it works, it could mean a much closer and dependant relationship
with all those "toys" I've been accumulating and learning about for the last
few years. For now....the boys need a new dresser..and once again I can take
care of that for them <g!>
Sawdust boogers....never have they been so welcomed!
