I strove valiantly to complete my cabinet doors before the Thanksgiving dinner.  You, my readers, were pulling for me to finish on time, but alas, I have let you down.  

A lot has happened in the last few weeks.  There has been a lot of work to do at my shop.  Also an elderly relative suddenly needed our assistance.  That along with the daily needs of five children made it difficult. 

However, Snail's Pace Challenge is not about making excuses.  We know life will be chaotic and difficult so we just need to work through it.  

On the bright side, I finished the three things that she wanted before Thanksgiving: 1. Fix the dish washer 2. Paint the back of the stairs 3. Install the storm door.  The 80 year old storm door was found by the side of the road about 5 years ago.  It looked really ugly with the worn paint and two missing panes of glass.  It was also six inches too short.  But I saw the potential! After six evenings of work, it is now a beautiful addition to our house. 
Back to the cabinet doors: since they were not finished by our Thanksgiving dinner, the "Public Humiliation" kicked in.  I had to eat my entire dinner with a flimsy plastic knife as my sole utensil, with 20 guests in attendance.  It was not as bad as you would think.  It was my first Thanksgiving that I did not eat too much.  I even thought about how I could market the "Plastic Knife Weight Loss Program".

I hope it was a blessed Thanksgiving for you and for your family. It's a nice story.
