___ Days since a lost time accident.

Thanks to Jay, Nathan and Chad, who hooked me up with the Normals covers. Much appreciated. And problem solved. (God bless the internets.)

My parents were in town for a couple days this week. I'm the second most clumsy person I know and I have very few skills related to home repair, so when my dad, who has very strong handyman tendencies, comes to town, I put him to work. Actually, sometimes he puts me to work, but whatever.

I've lived in this house a week shy of five years, and yesterday, for the first time ever, I went on my roof. We had to fix a couple shingles. It was pretty cool. I felt very manly. Everything looked different, which was to be expected, and I didn't fall off, which was not.
