Burn-the-World Frustration

Gah! I could not be more frustrated right now. When Jerry or I get this frustrated, we always say "I want to burn the world!" to express that it is our maximum tolerance level of frustration.

I was already in a terrible mood because I've been trying to work on a woodworking project but I cannot, for the life of me, align the blades in my jointer. I've spent umpteen hours working on it--I even wrote about it a couple of weeks ago when I cut my fingers--and I have a jig specifically designed to align blades.

However, every time I think I have it, I test a piece of wood and it's still not right. And now, because I've been messing with it so much, the new blades look even worse than the old ones with little nicks here and there. I've watched so many YouTube videos about it and they make it look so fast and easy!

I came back into the house in a terrible mood, but started to work on Transformation Tuesday. I was almost done and when I tried to upload a photo, Blogger is just not having it for some reason. I've tried everything I can think of but I just can't get my photos uploaded.

So, if there is a level of frustration beyond "burn the world!" frustration, that's the level that I'm at right now. Jerry and I are going to Dave and Renee's tonight (I can't even remember the last time I saw them) so I need to chill out before we leave.

Anyway, I hope everything with my blog is back to normal tomorrow. Sorry that I don't have a Transformation Tuesday to post--I only have one submission, so please send me some more for next week! Just send a before photo and an after photo to me at: katie (at) runsforcookies (dot) com and include your name and description of your transformation. Thanks!

  1. I think we have all had those kind of days. I hope you had fun last night & frustrated level has gone down


I used to publish ALL comments (even the mean ones) but I recently chose not to publish those. I always welcome constructive comments/criticism, but there is no need for unnecessary rudeness/hate. But please--I love reading what you have to say! (This comment form is super finicky, so I apologize if you're unable to comment)
