Dose of Reality

While I am here wrestling with a power drill that is seriously lacking power (I don’t think I am supposed to have to use a regular screwdriver once I hit a stud because my drill stops working), I am serving you up a special treat.  Real life in our casa.  Greta insists I chase her for at least 20 minutes a day.  And then when Chris comes home, there is a chase fest all over again.  She keeps me going, that girl.

And if anyone reading this has a favorite power drill that’s not Black & Decker (that’s what we have now), feel free to let us know how superior yours is, because we gotta get a new one–STAT–my arms can’t take much more of this.  Yes, I am giving you the chance to brag about how awesome you and your choice of power drill are–jump at this rare opportunity.  See you mañana with a curtain hanging update.

    this is old, but after multiple power tool failures, i went to de walt and never looked back–18V of wonderfulness. and yes, corded tools tend to have more power.

    My husband swears by ones that plug in. It stinks to use an extension cord, but they are powerful.

  • I read your blog frequently for inspiration, but today your little video really boosted my (grad-school-related) frustrated morning. Thank you!
