I always think NEXT life I will learn to use power tools and build stuff. That reminds me tho, my best friend has all your crazy skills and more- she does the home improvement projects at their house. She calls me when she needs structural input so I helped her with repairs at her aunts 100 yo house. Hmmm if she didn't work 60 hours per week she may actually want to help me build a rig.
Working around kids will keep your mind well rounded- right?
Keep up the good work!
Thank you Annie! Good nails are essential. I took 9 years of classical piano as a kid and was forced to have short nails. Now no matter what, at sea for days on end, using power tools, or chasing kids around, I keep mine perfectly manicured. It makes a total mindset difference! It just makes you feel so much more feminine and beautiful!
And anyone can use power tools, and build anything they want. I have some building experience, but most stuff I'm just teaching myself. You just can't be afraid of doing things a few times before you get it right
And your best friend sounds amazing, and I'm sure she would love to help! When I started this I was working 60-70 hours a week, at two jobs.
