Mid Summer Blues

Summer has been awkward at best- full of kids, work, and not as much riding as I would like-different from the past few years. Circumstances change. People change. Routines change.  A subtext of disappointment is running in the background like a virus.

And there is MUCH work to do. I have only two weeks to clean up brush and pressure wash the house.  It should be a day job but I still worry I won’t get it done.  I’m a bit lazy.

Over the past 30 years I’ve become comfortable being alone.  I don’t envy others’ relationship dramas. I prefer solitude like the introvert I am. But when there are projects like this to be completed, I can feel a bit lost. It is times like this when I think it would be nice to have someone to help figure these things out.  So I end up procrastinating.

It’s funny; I’m not like this at work.  I’m obsessive about getting things done. As a student, I completed papers and assignments days early.

I’ve never pressure washed a house before. So like the younger generation, I turned to How to Videos on YouTube. It seems easy…..

We’ll see.

My grandsons have used YouTube how to videos to mixed results. There are several skateboards in the cellar in various states of disarray.

Maybe I have time to hire someone….

    Just be careful not to get the jet too close to the house. The force is quite amazing. You can damage the siding or like I did once fire yourself off a ladder. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
    Other than that it is easy.

    Good thought. Last thing I need is a broken something….

    I’m going to call a company that does it tomorrow to see if they can get it done in the next 2. I have a feeling I’ll still be doing it. Still need the company to do the roof though….Need to be cleaned too.
