here I am



One of the things that we planned on working on this summer is the deck. It has taken on a greenish-gray tint, and needs a good washing, staining, and sealing.

Also, it is very slippery when it’s wet. This morning, it was raining.

I stepped outside wearing my favorite khakis – and promptly fell. I landed (somehow) on my butt AND my big toe.

The khakis have huge green marks on the shin and backside (which, David reports, came out in the immediate wash!) and my big toe is bigger and bloody. It hurts!

    My wife’s been on this “we need to pressure wash and re-stain the deck” kick for a couple of weeks. It’s going to be a chore so I’ve been resistant. Of course, now that it is summer here in the sunshine state, it’s hotter than… well, I can’t think of an analogy that won’t be flagged by a profanity filter. Let’s just say it’s hot. I’m sure that isn’t going to deter her and I’ll be out there in the 90 degree heat and 90% humidity before I know it. I’ll just consider it a weight loss plan ;)

    While we both think it’s important to do, my husband’s all about saving money. So, rather than paying a friend (who’s in the biz) to do it for us (and to do it WELL for us), he’s insisting on doing it himself. So he’s asking for the misery. The 90-90 you mentioned is already a factor here (Indianapolis gets muggy!), so he keeps finding other things to do. =)
