This week’s hardware store sale is going on and it’s like a second Christmas around our house. Three sons and a father who are in the carpentry business will do that to you. The big custom tent sale happens one or two times a year and we all stock up like the apocalypse is about to happen. We’ve got Miter saws, power drills, band saws, levels, and enough hammers and nails to build our house twice over.
I even managed to find a welding kit! I don’t even know how to weld that well but that’s not stopping me from getting to play with one. One of my favorite parts about it though is seeing my boys light up like when they were knee height. I don’t know what it is, probably nostalgia, but they’ll get excited over the latest power tools and fight over the best piece of equipment to sand with. Kind of warms your heart really.
