I don't know about you but this past week went by crazy super fast. We have been busting some serious ass this week and are getting so close to having the exterior of the house done, and it needs to be done because I am feeling burnt out. I have been spending more time on the roof or on a ladder then on the ground. My arms ans legs and everything are sore. And the mosquitoes are still trying to suck my blood dry so I basically have been covered head to toe in the hot hot heat, sweating and swatting and yet I still have managed 1000 bites and to get paint all over my body. . Same with the mr except he sprays the deet so is able to wear shorts and a t shirt but then gets covered in black soot from the siding. He looks like he has been cleaning out chimneys or playing in a coal pit. It's funny to see but annoying to clean (everything he touches turns black)
But that's it, not much else went on this week. Kind of lame but that's how life goes sometimes. I am just really excited for today. because we are not doing it today, no way. I am going to stay off the roof, step away from the paintbrush, and just drink all the coffee and read my book. I would love to say that we are going to spend the day hanging out in the woods or something but I think we could use a break from all the mosquitoes. Maybe a bike ride by the the river (mosquitoes can't bite us while on a bike, right?) but I just want to stop itching for a little while. Is that too much to ask?
