So despite my previous post about the benefits of my current employment situation, I must admit that there are some serious draw backs. First and foremost is the fact that I feel largely impotent and emasculated. I know that this situation is not of my doing intellectually, but there's a psychological component that's incredibly jarring. Suddenly I'm put in a situation where I'm reliant upon Wife to provide for our needs while I struggle to get the house ready for sale. A task for which I'm woefully unprepared.
That said I cannot say that I was unproductive in day 1 of unemployment. I went out for a good jog. I finished sanding all the molding around the windows, and with help of a good friend did the demolition on the kitchen counter tops and sink. Wife seems to think that we're making good progress and well within our time limit to finish everything. I am still more hesitant and fear that I'm not even close to where I need to be. I guess we'll see in two weeks.
1. Finish painting the molding on the upstairs windows.
2. Finish installing the new kitchen counter tops/sink
3. Begin painting the stairs (not the stairs themselves but the kick boards)
And here's a video. Yes it's French. Yes it has a fiddle. How can you go wrong with a French rock band that uses a fiddle? I mean honestly.
