I used to think that "DIY" referred to ambitious, cost-saving projects that brought one happiness, exhaustion and the sense of a job well done.
I now know that it stands for "dummy in the yard." I'm sore from the yard work this weekend and despite how much I'll brag about how great the side of the yard looks in an upcoming post, the fact is I barely accomplished anything. So there.
Though it DID bring happiness, exhaustion and the sense of a (small) job well done, so maybe I wasn't too far off.
