today’s emotional deck* rollercoaster?

Finding out that a mistake that caused the team to mix 10 extra bags of concrete (at a cost of ~$30), will actually save over $150 in hardware and lumber (as opposed to involving the use of a something called a “demo saw”, or digging up and repouring sixteen 48″ footings).

*I might have mentioned that I’m building a deck, if I ever updated this blog anymore.
