|Even the tool box shone as if it were recently polished.|
My garage is organized to the extent that we can find our car and a few bicycles when need be.
I get scared thinking how I would completely screw up the plumbing in our home if I had a complete set of professional tools and a neatly labeled box of plumbing parts.
Another good reason for not having a stock of supplies for household repairs is that on the off chance I do actually want to attempt to fix something, I get to go to the hardware store -- a thoroughly delightful experience (hose clamps come in so many sizes! Who knew?).
I take consolation in my diligent blogging, which elevates me from an uncredentialed schlub to a certified parenting expert, who is able to hold forth on cutting-edge issues like "putting stuff on the blog" and "how to anger fellow parents by putting stuff on the blog."
I know, you're welcome!
