Yeah, I'm not about to go switching teams or anything but I actually like it when the women are out of the house. They're too bossy.

I've been pushing to have friends over for burgers and beer in the back yard, so I've been cleaning the deck. I haven't really had a chance to do it yet because it's a 2 day job and it's been raining every day. I'm patting myself on the back for going with the composite railings though. All that tree pollen just sponges right off!

I need to drag the lazy kid out to Home Depot though. I need to grab some exterior illumination.

Sorry - I can't help but embrace the Dad mindset on this!

I scrubbed the deck yesterday afternoon and then later on in the evening stained about 2/3 of it before I lost light. I also trimmed some low-hanging branches. I'll pick it up when the sun goes on the other side of the house; it's HOT today and the stain is still tacky.

This afternoon though I'm thinking that I need to take Joe to the pool at my mom's apartment complex. Where's the sunscreen?

We had some storms blow through in the last week and knocked a couple shingles off the cap of the roof. After calling several contractors and getting only one response/quote back for $350 in a week or so, I nutted-up and crawled-up onto the roof and glued them back on with some wet/dry roof tar. I hope to not do that again soon. I want to say this roof is a 12/12 or close. I was very glad to be on the ground again via the ladder and not a slide.

Sanded the speckled area of the walls to be painted in Pippas room.
Played that game called "Get off your arse and help me pick your sheeet up and put it away!"
Ran a load of laundry.
Vacuumed downstairs.
Mopped the kitchen and informal dining room. Twice. I'm putting the chairs back and clocking out.
Called Orkin. We got angry bees.

Nice.

I hadn't mowed the hillside in several weeks so it needed it. My, but it grew to be overly shaggy so fast. It's done though. It took me about 2-1/2 hours.

I also did 2 loads of laundry and saw my therapist.
