A pretty good day.

I got a rare treat today. I worked a six-hour day. Yes, I said Six Hours. The pit for the elevator that we started the installation of today is three inches too deep. The contractor has to fill in the difference with concrete before we can continue. Ah, a nice, light day.

Another good thing is that Ford and I have teamed back up for this one. I like working with the guy, and we tend to have a lot of fun while putting in the elevator. We had a good time catching up today, and we got a few things done despite the setback.

After I left the job today, I had to go down to the Home Depot to get some bolts that we needed, and I went ahead and bought a few tools while I was there. I've been debating getting a set of cordless tools for better than a week, and I finally gave in today and got them. I got the Ryobi Super Combo, and so far I'm very pleased with myself for the acquisition. The price of this set was about $170, as opposed to something from DeWalt whose combo kits go for around $500. I've used a few of the Ryobi products before, and found them to not suck, so it was a done deal.

But (there's always a but), the absolute bestest part about this new elevator install is the fact that it is a mile and a half from my house. What? Not 150 or 300 miles? You heard what I said. 1.5 miles. You have no idea how cool that is for me. Not driving for 5 hours to get to work is such a treat.

So far, a great start to the week, but I'm sure I'll get over it.

"...and found them to not suck, so it was a done deal" Hee.... one of my favorite Johnny_Oh phrases....

Glad you are close to home. A very good thing...and I know of what I speak.

It WILL be a good week, It WILL be a great week!!

I'm trying to maintain a "cup is half full" attitude here, but something alway's goes wrong. We'll see what it is on this job.

Sounds like you already had your disaster for this job.

Should be smooth sailing from here on in.

Yup, piece o' cake.

Nothing could POSSIBLY go wrong.

... that should be enough poking the Disaster Gods in the eye for ya :-)

Gee, you'll almost have time to go out drinking after work, sleep it off, and STILL have time to blog sober!
