Erika tagged me. I'll play along, even if I don't sound very scholarly.
Here are the rules:
1 - Pick up the nearest book of 123 pages or more. (Just grab one, no cheating!)
2 - Find Page 123.
3 - Find the first 5 sentences.
4 - Post the next 3 sentences.
5 - Tag 5 people, who will post theirs in the comment section.
From "Building a Shed" by Joseph Truini:
"Hand the first truss to your helper on top of the wall, then hustle inside the shed and grab the long rear rafter of the first truss. Help your partner set the truss on top of both the front and rear walls, making sure it's directly over the first wall stud. Working at the front wall, align the outside edge of the plywood gusset plate on the truss with the outside edge of the wall's top plate."
I like that it includes these words: hustle, partner, stud and align.
And, we decided to wait on rebuilding a shed 'til after deployment. Besides that "deployment" begins in, like, 3 days, being shed-less might be a critical step towards figuring out how to live a less-is-more life. I'm better at accumulating creative possibilities in big plastic tubs, though, so that'll be a challenge.
I'm also trying to focus on savoring these last days before separation, rather than just being sad, angry or anxious. Wish me luck.
