I finished the swing set! Only took me 2.5 times longer than the directions said it would. The roof was a mother-fucker. Now I know why all the other ones I see have a canvas tent roof.
It feels good because I worry about stuff going wrong around the house...but if I can figure this out, I think I can do fix-it stuff around the house.
I can't wait to pick up Teslet!! I feel like I've just put the Christmas gifts out Christmas Eve. But even better...Teslet knew I was building it this weekend....I hope he talked ex-shat's ear off about it!
Lie-lie approves of it as well...think she'll be using underneath the rock wall like a dog house.

Awesome job! Teslet may never want to come back in the house
I've built one of those before though and you should be very proud of your work.

Awesome job Momma!!!
I bet your little guy is soo excited to see it, that he did talk X's ear off about it.
You've done good.

It's OKAY to be scared.
Being scared means you're about
to do something really, really brave.
