You do the job in return for money so you can buy food and shelter so you can do the job, that's everyone's base plane.
Above that the reward, the pleasure, comes from doing a great job which often goes unnoticed by bosses who are just trying to make sure everyone is doing their minimum.
The self satisfaction of making personal goals, from knowing you're better than the average bear :thumb:

Nice job D!

all demolition complete, floor swept.

tarpaper in house, measuring and cutting and installing tarpaper vapor barrier next

Then the same with the pressure treated plywood underlayment

Then purchase, measure, cut, install cement board.


**THEN** the toilet can be reinstalled

Sounds like a reasonable substitute for a weekend at Brunhilda's house of pain.:eek2:

I like it because it feels sooooo goooood when it stops....

xoxoxoBruce 06-16-2019 05:29 AM

I know, I had a marriage like that.

Hah!

Gravdigr 06-16-2019 10:51 AM

I'm happy because, as of today, I've lived longer than all three granddaddydigrs.

They all died @ 50.

I went them one better.

I made 51 today.:cheerldr:

And I don't feel a day over 80.

Happy Boithday, Mr G!

And many more of 'em! :thumb:

Happy birthday man!

Did they have heart problems?

Gravdigr 06-16-2019 11:37 AM

Two did. One was strangled in his sleep with his own belt.

I know it sounds like clapping myself on the back, but you can't know how heavy this has been weighing on me for the last two years. After the turn of the year last year, I was genuinely starting to worry.

But, I'm good (enough), for now, and I think I've turned the corner on this latest experience. So...

I'm happy, for the moment.:)

I'm sure I'll be pissed off and back to normal in no time...

Griff 06-16-2019 01:37 PM

Huzzah!

DanaC 06-16-2019 02:31 PM

yay!

You have company, it turns out this is a common thing that people consider hard and worry about. I looked into it when I was in my thirties, when I had a bit of it, because my dad died at age 38.

Congrats, digr! And happy birthday!

My dad felt something similar, except his turning point was the moment my marriage lasted longer than his had.
