Daddy's New Door

I took the day off so I could replace the door to my office. No, it's not what you think. This was a preplanned, premeditated door replacing - no temper tantrums involved. Honestly.

I have a number of laser printers in my office that I use for work - I write printer drivers, after all. As far as printer smells go, these things are relatively benign - nothing like a heavy solvent or UV curable inkjet printer.

But they do have a smell, and the smell can cause problems. I bought an exterior door last fall in the hopes that it would do better at keeping the smells in the office. It's been sitting outside since Thanksgiving, getting rid of its own smells. Yeah, that's why I hadn't put it in yet.

It is starting to look like Kara may need to come home in the near future, and I wanted to make sure and have the door in before she does.

I didn't take before and after pictures, but the difference is kind of like this:

Your pictures are so funny! You gave me a good laugh!

Way to go! Anytime a man steps up to the plate of 'fixing' things...in my book he is Superman! {My hubby is anti-fixing}

Yeah, yanno, the reason the pictures are the way they are is that the door isn't actually, um, fixed yet.

But hopefully soon....
