Just a few small ways this project has impacted me this week:
- I have started looking forward to trash day like a kid to Christmas. That’s how excited I am to get at least a few bags of crap off my lawn.
- The cat doesn’t get that the back door is gone, and that scratching on the plywood will not get her let out, or in. Instead, she meows and sits forlornly on the pavement where the door used to be.
- We have an axe in the kitchen. You know, because if a fire broke out, we have no rear exit. And we almost did have a fire when I attempted to grill dinner in the backyard without a back door.
