Ugh, some days…

Ugh, some days…

Yep, some days just don’t turn out as expected.

 

Still had a couple days off to burn from my day job. Had plans of getting my oil changed Friday, get the deck railing stained, and the outdoor electrical stuff fixed; but the day had other plans for me.

 

Started off with a dull headache, then our cat Leo made a jig saw puzzle out of one of our Halloween busts we got a few years ago from Home Goods.

 

Here’s Leo looking innocent.

While being petted, he accidentally knocked the pirate bust off the end table.

 

The wrought iron railing took the head off and the 4 foot fall to the tiled landing did the rest. It was totally an accident so I can’t blame him or be mad.

I set it all aside and went to Home Depot for electrical parts n pieces. While at Home Depot the headache started getting worse and showing signs of a migraine. Still stuck to the plan and stopped to got my oil changed, but started feeling worse.

 

When I got home,  I stained the new deck parts real quick.

Then I fixed the broken Halloween bust.

 

Luckily all the pieces were accounted for and the breaks were somewhat clean. With some patience and a lot of 2 part epoxy, I was able to fix the Halloween pirate bust.

After that, I was done. The headache progressed to a full blown migraine and I was down for the count.

 

Not at all what I had planned for Friday, but that’s how it goes sometimes.

 

It’s now Saturday and I’m trying to take it easy and fully recover from the migraine.

 

It’ll be a few days before I get back to “normal”. Again, that’s just how it goes sometimes.
