Sigh. My next weekend project is to put together the backyard trampoline that my wife got on sale at K-Mart.

My wife is usually the one who is more conservative when it comes to the kids’ health. I figure as long as that loud crash from the next room doesn’t result in the spillage of blood, it’s not worth worrying about.

But she had to talk me into getting the trampoline.
