Our story so far: As summer inched on, we juggled a variety of projects at the old Methodist church we were turning into our home.

One day when Tyler wasn’t feeling well, I was promoted to foreman. Make that temporary foreman.
Unlike Tyler who could operate power tools, I tended to more pedestrian tasks. That day included two trips to Home Depot, one to pick up the sander for St. Johnny to use on the upstairs floor, and a second to drop it off. You-Can-Call-Me-Al tended to miscellaneous carpentry tasks (like trimming out the upstairs belfry door and repairing holes in the hardwood near the back door).
In between errands, I laid out the tile rug to be set into the hardwood in my kitchen using two boxes of mixed tiles. You-Can-Cal-Me-Al didn’t want to be the one choosing the design, so I laid it out dry and took a picture. While I was at it, I laid out the tile feature for above the stove. And then I touched up the spiral stairway, which got a little scratched as it was screwed into the church.
My short stint as boss resulted in forward progress and no maiming, so I think it was a success.
