Sorry to be away so long, but I've been swamped, so I'll give you a brief overview of life in the past week with details to follow.
I FINALLY GOT MY CHAINSAW!
Wow, I'm feeling like a real man already. I even broke it in and cut some wood, but man was I nervous. It was not as bad as I had thought, but it still scares the heck out of me. Pics coming soon.
I started to fix the clapboards on the back of the house, but it's clashing with my desire to cut wood.
Still searching for more wood, but that's another story.
Karate has been going well, trying to get tips from Chip, and trying to be more aware of my presence when sparring.
More later. Until then, thanks for reading.
