Honey do or honey don't?

I have my comp exam this week. It is over everything I have learned over this past year. I am the biggest procrastinator when it comes to studying. I will put it off and find tons of other things to do. (Isn't it ironic that I learned so much about teaching ADHD kiddos this year?)

To help me out, Daniel told me he would be in charge of Dillon today. Daniel is a pretty big TV watcher, so I envisioned an afternoon of them lounging around in the living room, watching HGTV and playing with the huge basket of toys that threatens to take over my house. I would study in the bedroom, away from the demon-computer and all those sorts of distractions.

Nope. That isn't what happened.

Daniel picked today to mark off the one thing on his to-do list. "Deadbolts." It has said that on his to-do list for about 5 months. I continually add and mark things off of my own list, but his has stayed the same since he bought the deadbolts at Lowe's back in February.

So, there I was, actually making an attempt to study.

Daniel dragged out all of his power tools, and set up a workstation in our bedroom. He has begun drilling and chiseling, Dillon was yelling, and Tux was running around, fretting at all the noise. I saw an opportunity to take a "break" from studying, so I grabbed the camera cause I knew you wouldn't believe me without proof.

Or maybe you would. I guess it isn't THAT hard to believe.
