Wade, you're just in a slump, it will hit the mark when you put a full swing set together for your son! Those are of the debil and are true bishes.

In the last 6 months I've done a full wooden swing set/playhouse and a barbie dream house. Think the dream house was worse.

roflmao Help build a pretty girly playhouse for my nieces when they were little, use it for a backyard deer blind now. None of the anti/crybaby neighbors suspect we hunt out of it. It's perfect LOL. Pop a deer from the playhouse, drag it into the garage quick/close garage door. Lay down plastic on the floor/hang from ceiling/clean deer. Roll plastic up/throw away/open door.....howdy neighbor....what deer? grin

I was getting that way, but it gets to me watching people fumble around with trying to repair or build something. Just watching the dumb mistakes and hen house ways make me go back to doing it myself.

Kyle, he never finished projects before or took too damn long. His wife is a good source on this. I see why he pays "the man" roflmao

It's a process of getting older and being more successful. At one point I wouldn't think of paying someone to paint my house. It would be too cost effective to do it myself. The older I get, the more valuable my time is. I hired a buddy who is a painter to paint the exterior of the house. Wife told me I should pay them to do the fence too. I said I could do it myself! She said, When? So... I paid to have it painted.

Well I quit reloading. Never really cared for it just looked at it as a necessary evil. Now I just buy off the shelf or use Chad's reloads.

I feel ya. Between the spawn and selling real estate full time, along with my popo night job, I’m finding I have more money less time and loosing the desire to do some projects. Some projects I’m glad I lost the desire.

It was only after I retired that I realized the abundance of tools and "stuff" I had acquired through the years to build and maintain things around the house. I'm still trying to figure out why they now seldom get used.
