I heart power tools

I finally got that dang corner tv stand put together. Unplugging and transferring the tv, cable box, DVD player and Tivo box was almost a bigger hassle. I'm just so glad it's over. It looks great and so much more organized. I also love the fact that my little stereo system, that has an annoyingly bright blue light when turned on, is now put away in a cabinet. I've always heard sleeping in complete darkness is best so hiding that bright light is great.

After struggling with about 30 screws last night I decided to get an electric screwdriver. I looked them up on Consumer Reports and decided on this one. I dropped by Home Depot on the way home and, for $32, got the greatest tool ever. It's also a drill, has magnetized bits, a built in light and... well, let's just say it's a whole new world. I told my Dad I got it 'cause I wouldn't be able to call down the hall for him when I get my far away condo. Of course, Daddy can't be replaced by an electric screwdriver but it will be extremely helpful in the new place. Besides, Dad agreed that it was pretty amazing. In fact, he liked it so much he may be getting one for Father's Day.

Electric screwdrivers are the best tools ever! Close second: reciprocating saws.
