Well I’ve been busier that I’d like but so far so good. Working from home now so still doing 8+ hours a day. Did have to go into the office tho for 24hours over the weekend so yay for straight pay OT. Other than that I built a cross for my MIL for a craft she was wanting to do. It turned out well

Then I decided before it got warm and the snakes got to lively I wanted to clean out under my house. It was built in the 70s. Added on to multiple times and I swear no one ever cleaned out ANYTHING from under the place. So I spent 3 hours under there with a rake. My dad came over and stayed outside and we filled up at least 10 tractor buckets full of junk (old pipes, block, wood, brick, insulation, siding and even a snake skin). And as luck would have it I broke two water lines while I was down there so I spent a couple more hours fixing those ( did I mention I’m not a plumber). By the end of that day my knees would shot since I didn’t have any knee pads
And then Murphy moved in. My ac system had a Freon leak so I had a repair guy come and found the leak, recharged the whole system cause it was completely empty ($300 for the Freon alone) then we cranked the heat pump back on and a fitting blew and emptied the system again. At this point the heat pump is 15 years old and furnace is 29 so I told him to get me a whole new system.

I did make some floating shelves for my wife to go in our kitchen that turned out nice tho

And that’s been my last few weeks
