Engineer or At Least Construction Worker

Feeling pretty accomplished right now, as this morning I built an airport, a train station, a bus station...

and a train table with an intricate track laid just so around all of the above mentioned landmarks. Christmas is starting a little early in our household this year, mostly because I just couldn't wait for Koji to have this train table. Oh, and because it would be difficult and ridiculous for us to take this table to and from Oregon all so he could open the box under the tree on Christmas Day?! I like "on the day" celebrations and rules, perhaps more than most, but I wasn't about to try and make this one happen. After all, Koji doesn't totally get Christmas yet, though he quite likes to shout, "Kih-mas!" when he spots a decorated tree.

You likely won't be bothered reading the full review posted at the link above, but my experience and opinions are nearly identical to the those of the reviewer. Except for this important difference:

it took me FOUR hours to put it all together. And I cussed twice. Are we having fun yet?
