It took us 12 months, working every weekend and after work most days. I think I should have been a man because I would barely thank you for a diamond ring but I get pretty excited about hardware stores and love the new drop saw I got for my birthday in March LOL.

That's pretty much how we do birthdays in my family.  I have tools coming out my ears.  My husband has a tool kit, and that only because I got it for him for Christmas one year.  I built our barn with the help of my kids while my husband was at work.  The kids were 8 and 4 at the time.  I go to Lowes or Home Depot to dream about what I want to get/do next.  Last month it was a miniature barn for my miniature goats.  Next it's a sheep shed, after I replace the dead A/C unit in the tackroom...

A girl just can't have too many new tools !!!  Haha, I think if we friends living in the same place a girls day out shopping/browsing would be in a hardware store, I also can spend ages browsing and planning. Good on you for building that barn, what an achievement particularly with 2 young children and such a great example for them. I bet they are proud of their "can do" mom.

I hurt my shoulder a few weeks ago and am still waiting for it to heal completely, but my kids are so used to me being able to do everything and then some that they are having a hard time adjusting to needing to help me, instead of it being the other way around.
Gotta love 'em.

That's no good, so frustrating when you can't get on with things but them again a little enforced rest isn't such a bad thing. Yep. sometimes kids just don't realise how much mom does until she isn't doing it all anymore.

I dislocated my shoulder a while back, right in the middle of fixing drywall and painting in my workshop. The physiotherapist gave me a stretchy cord to attach to the door knob and pull on for various exercises. Agh, it seemed like such a time waster so I went back to painting the workshop. Loaded the roller with paint and used my left hand to lift my right arm to the wall. Once the wall was taking the weight of the roller I could push it up and down. It worked a treat as a therapy to prevent my shoulder freezing. Hmm, does that barn need painting ? Wink Just joking. Hope your better soon.

Awwww lol! Sometimes you just have to do what works. Shoulder issues are no fun. I just got my first tool set since I'll be living on my own in a few weeks. It doesn't do much besides hang things and make sure they are level, but it is bright pink. I've had so much fun hanging curtains LOL! One day I'll brave a larger project!

I have the same type of tool kit, but in teal.  It's actually the only way I can figure out where I put the thing of picture hangers and the tap hammer.  Same with my Dremmel.  If I didn't have a tool kit just for that, I would never be able to keep track of all the little pieces parts.
Gotta love 'em.

I do use a joint supplement for my knees, but this is more like tendonitis. It's where the muscles from my neck attach to my shoulder.
Gotta love 'em.
