I work seven days per week.  That is not a brag, it simply is.  Working seven days per week tricks the brain into forgetting exactly which day is today.  Maybe that is why so many religions have a Sabbath – one day to reset and let everyone know which day is which.

As I was working the ceiling collapsed on me (yes, fell onto me).  It didn’t feel great.  Falling ceilings are always a concern in old homes (who knew?).

A friend is helping me so that he can gain some experience working on homes.  He is a fellow MBA.  Interestingly enough, every day he tells me that he enjoys the satisfaction gained from this ‘man’s work’.  I too experience significant satisfaction from the work I complete.

Walls partially finished.

One of the great satisfactions of this work is the ability to see my own abilities improving.  I would not consider my abilities ‘expert’ but the more projects I complete, the more I see my work transforming from “WTF dude” to “Hey, that actually looks kinda nice”.
