On New Year's Eve we had a water leak in the kitchen that required professional attention. To be fair, the insurance company did a good job helping us through the process of finding a service to rip out flooring some drywall and insulation and lots of fans and dehumidifiers to dry things out. The desired contractor and insurance company in a reasonable timeframe agreed on costs to fix. Of course, we want to do a few things beyond insurance so money out of our pocket. The good news is that I have an emergency fund so no debt. The bad news is that we need to rebuild the amt we took out of the emergency fund.
I told my wife I have enough wood for the next few upcoming projects and I don't need any tools. I can get by easily till Nov. She didn't believe I could last this long. I went so far as to write and sign a piece of paper indicating as such which she then taped on the mirror.
Sigh. It's a bit difficult to not want to go out to sites and look at tools and wood, etc. Logically I don't need anything for tools (until I save up for a bandsaw and dust collection but that is a few years off) and I have plenty of wood for the projects I want to do in 2021. Still, it's mentally a bit harder than I thought it would be. I don't know what this says about me and I'm not sure if I like it. So far it's been 6 weeks since I made that declaration and like 6 months to go.
