Yesterday I encountered an enormous disappointment. I only finished assembling nine of the ten new dining room chairs. My brain pumped me up, filling me with motivation as I looked forward to crossing this task off my list. Five, four, three, two, Uh-oh. The last stretcher rail on the final chair was incorrect. The box included two front stretcher rails instead of a front stretcher and a right-side stretcher rail. You can’t imagine my dismay. I dug through the paperwork, found the 800 number, and punched my way through the “Press One for Sales” automated jungle. Eventually, the operator connected to “Marsha,” who confirmed that the part was in stock and would ship today. With luck, it will arrive next Tuesday, and I can finally put this project to bed.
The second sealer coat on the stairs required a rough sanding before applying the third, and hopefully, the final finish sealer coat. Time will tell. After a rain delay, work resumed on refinishing the nine interior doors. Every day I celebrate the small wins.
Even with the hustle and bustle, I didn’t forget my number one priority. My habits are strong, and writing a little every day is my secret weapon. Yesterday I wrote 243 words.
Did you write yesterday?
Keep on writing.
