Everything

What’s the household task you most dislike doing? Why do you think that is — is it the task itself, or something more?

So many household tasks came to mind I couldn’t pick one. I live on my own and have a house and yard so I’m sick of doing every single thing by myself.  Inside housework, outside yard work, bill paying, money earning, cooking, taking the car for maintenance, …..

Painting.

003(Every time I take a photo of my work it’s cloudy!)

This painting job should be finished but I had a set back for a couple of days. I was going to get paint before working Friday night and paint all weekend but my boss called me in early. It was a terrible night…. bad enough to write about …. so I put off buying paint until Monday.   https://monicleblog.wordpress.com/2015/05/10/im-down/

I really wanted to see this wall painted as I’ve been living in newspapers and tarps and looking at bare, dirty walls. This does not help depression.

This morning I have to go to the dentist and hope to do some more this afternoon.

It would be so nice if someone was painting while I did everything else. Or if someone else took my car in for me; the snow tires are still on and it’s way overdue for an oil change. It goes in Thursday morning and I’m working Thursday night which means back and forth to Grand Bend twice.

My lawn needs it’s first cut already: I have my fingers crossed that my mower will start up. If not…. what then?

I’m looking at how I can made a sidewalk in front of my house ….. cheaply and by myself.

Mostly I hate organizing papers, which is my worst mess. I can always put that off because there is always so much to do….. by myself.

It gets to me.

  1. I started cleaning my desk last week so I could move all my writing stuff back to it to write on my Alaska book and two days later I was still filing! Where does all that crap come from?
    I have promised myself to get my inside doors and door frames painted this summer, two years after they were hung. I’ll let you know in August how that is going!
    So glad I have H to take care of the outside work – though he does less than he should in my opinion. He also takes care of the car stuff.
    As soon as you finish that painting you will feel much better!
    I think it’s because we blog is why we can’t get things done! Lol! ~Elle
