Finally working...

Well, I will finally get to work in my shop today! I haven't done anything because my hubby is home, but he's gone for the day, so I can do something.

I did add the pegboard and the shelves on the left. I also added the trays to the sides of the table. This is my son's art table. He got tired of it taking up all the space in his room, so I got it.

It is a crappy, gray, rainy day here. It has been raining for 2 days now. We need it, but yuck!

School started again yesterday, so it made for a gloomy first day back. Our school system decided to go to a 4 day week, because it will save thousands of dollars in electricity at the school and diesel for the buses. They will go an extra hour every day, and lose some holidays, but they're out on Mondays. I like it, but I'll be happy when this year is over. Tyler is a senior and I'm soooo glad! I don't like the new attendance rules. If a child misses 5 days in a semester without a doctor's excuse, the parents have to go to court to explain why. If they miss 6 or more, the parents spend the weekend in jail. I can see some fights with the law in my future! I can NOT stand to be told what to do! Tyler has migraine's, and I can't run him to the doctor and spend a hundred bucks everytime he gets one! He is a staight A honors student, and I don't see why it matters how many days he misses if he's making A's. I don't think it's going to be a good year! Wish me luck! LOL

I hope you are all having a great week and having fun!~

Wow, it is really looking cool! I want to come play!

Maybe 1 note from the doctor documenting Tyler's potential for migraines will suffice...hopefully, he won't have to suffer through any. Yikes!
