We like used some power tools and junk!

Sooooo. Jared and I made a heardboard yesterday.  That's right.  Jared was all manly and stuff and used power tools.  I was manly too I guess because I also used power tools.  In fact, I did a bunch of things I have never done before.
1.  Used a circular saw to cut boards.
2.  Thought about how much it would hurt if I dropped said circular saw on my toes.
3.  Used a nail gun.
4.  Thought about how much it would hurt if I dropped said nail gun on my toes.
5.  Used wood glue but did not think about how much it would hurt if I glued my toes together.  I know you thought I was going in that direction.  That's just plain ridiculous people.  I thought about how much it would hurt if I accidentally glued my eyelids together.  That is a perfectly valid fear.
So where is this beautiful masterpiece you might ask?  It's in our garage waiting to be distressed and stained. 
We were going to get started on the sanding and distressing last night, but guess what?  I took a trip with Charlotte to the Urgent Care instead where she watched Ice Age a couple times while we waited to see how many breathing treatments it would take for her airways to get back to normal.  In case you're wondering, it was 3.  The poor kid was having a terrible time breathing, but they gave her her first ever otter pop and she was pretty happy.  The doctor said that she may have lots of these recurring attacks this fall and winter, and this is the second one so far.  Lucky us!  Anyway, she's doing a lot better today.  The staining will have to wait for another day.

Oh no, Jessi. It's too late for me to call you now, but I'll call tomorrow to check on our precious little Charlie. She's in our prayers!
