Fell asleep 5 times reading the boys Jack and the bean stock tonight.
Sharing my mistakes...
So, we got some stone pavers at a great deal from a business that's closing.
We're going to put them in the space that would normally be a sidewalk so when we park there we don't walk in mud.
First, we dug a big long hole. LOTS of dirt moved.
Then, with 30 minutes before the hardware store closed, I drove to get gravel for the first layer.
I got 3/8" gravel, spread it all out the next day.
Realized it won't work, too small. Needed the 3/4" size.
"Learning tax" :(

home loan/mortgage, bad webdev practices Show more
My mortgage is managed online via loanadministration.com (yes, really). That's where I log in.
After I login, I'm at a subpage of that url. Then if I want to do anything (like make a payment, setup/edit autopay) I'm taken to loan-administration.com. Note the hyphen (for real).
Once, when my user/pass didn't work and I noticed the hypher in the domain where I was logging in, I thought I was Phished (I went there via an email "you have new loan documents")
Well, my wife is coming home with another truck load of stone. A pallet of some kind of tile.
Tuesday it was 3/4 of a pallet of slate tile. Today another pallet. I think there is one more pallet left to pick up.
The people who sell it load it with a forklift, we unload a tile at a time (the last was 12"x12" square).
