What was a shanty a few weeks ago is turning into a pretty good fort. My oldest son started it but needed help to reinvent it. We dismantled the first and second attempt and started over.
I’m a fort builder from way back. I had them all: a grass hut in the bushes, a tree platform for swinging off of, the average shanty that was by far my favorite with it’s sloped roof and broken concrete pathway, but the most memorable was the time I decided to really expand my fort building abilities.
If you were around me for very long, you would soon equate me to a spinning top. I am very focused but can veer off on a random trail very quickly and with as much focus. My husband calls me a whirling dervish and shakes his head often, in my direction. A longstanding relationship with someone like me would show you that we are effective, just in a very ‘around the bush and in the backdoor’ sort of way.
I had quite a week... Four days ago, computer tragedy happened. You’ll instantly think to yourself, “you had everything backed up, right?” Well, I can say yes and NO! I have had a external hard drive all along, but only recently has it become too small. Therefore, back up errors kept flashing at me. So I made arrangements to sell my current one so I could buy a larger one. I cleaned it and was ready to hand it over to the new owner, that night I had a catastrophic hard drive crash, THAT NIGHT, what are the chances?. COMPLETELY FRIED!
