I sanded and stained our deck last year. SO helped but turning on the garden hose so it sprayed on the wet stain. If I didn't kill her then she's safe.

When I was a student the college had a women's hockey team and a men's hockey team (hockey on grass, of course). A match between the two was suggested but the men declined......because they said the women's team were too rough!

I have spent all evening (about 5 hours) knitting the final piece of my current project which was not complicated but had very fiddly shaping requiring concentration.. I finished it about 20 minutes ago......only to find out that I done it on the wrong sized needles and I had to unravel it -

ARRGGGHHHH!!!!!

If I hadn't been so careless I'd have been able to sew it up and put the finishing touches to it tomorrow and get the thing in the post on Saturday. (more screams)

Mad....that reminds me so much of my late mom. She used to sit and needlepoint, knit, and do all kinds of handwork...she would get so frustrated when she had to rip out something, but loved every minute of it in the long run. Thanks for the memories.

What are you doing?

DH was secretly impressed by my speedy painting ability! I got most of the levels and a set of stairs stained before he finished his little set of stairs! And there was no advice he could give!

And now we're both paying for it, aches and pains all over...

Is that a new record for the both of you? You both are to be commended! Let him kiss your boo boos. You both will feel so much better in about an hour. Then light up a cigarette after. Oh wait! that's what they do in the movies.

Stick together long enough, and the two of you could get the whole outside of your home completed painted. That means no killing each other.

We no longer get up on ladders higher than our heads. Been there, done that, now we pay someone else.
