I dated a guy who had more layers than an onion, and he made me cry.
Turned out to be a narcissistic, sociopathic , lying jerk.

I’m getting wiser.. I don’t date anymore😆... because I have a bad habit of picking less than stellar men. That’s my fault entirely.

OMG, I'm always picking up rocks too! That made me laugh. My friends and Sister chuckle when they see me bending over to pick up yet another rock. If it's not rocks, it's gemstones and crystals from the metaphysical shop. Ha! I love her interests! She must be a very interesting little girl.



Lol, you two would be great rock hunting buddies then

If you also forget about rocks in your pants pockets and put them through the wash as well, you're definitely cut from the same collector cloth



I think I enjoy making things unpleasant for myself, though this one is sort of necessary. I decided today would be a good day to....wash the stairwell walls. Which is fine and dandy for the parts I can reach by hand, the rest of them require an old, repurposed Swiffer floor duster to reach.
(Quick pro-tip: Swiffer floor dusters, the kind you put the wet/dry pads on, work extremely well with microfiber car cloths if you have the kind with the toothed "catches" to push the fabric into to secure it)

I've never done so much acrobatics before just to reach really high places and not fall down. Trying to clean the ceiling of the stairwell was actually rather dizzying. The walls go all the way up to the roof (well, save for the small space between the ceiling and roof, obviously, but you get the point) I wouldn't call it a vaulted stairwell per se, but it's close. I wouldn't consider using a ladder, they're old, steep stairs. I'd probably end up jostling the ladder off a stair and breaking my neck.

I don't know how nobody noticed how the walls had slowly gone from a slightly satiny shiny finish to dull, but we did. They're quite dusty, to say the least, even though you really can't tell by looking. It's only obvious after you wipe a section down, and then you can definitely tell. I guess that's the natural end result of nearly 4 years of outdoor dust, pollen, dirt, etc getting carried in the windows & through the house on the air currents.

I'm only half finished, I guess I should get back to it. The walls are not going to wash themselves

Light, that kid cracks me up! Glad you enjoyed the vid! LOL

Nyiah, The only place I forgot some rocks were in my purse. I wondered why it was heavier than usual. LOL
Hope by now, your dusting is done and over with.

OMG, the movie Alpha was just awesome!!!! What a story! The scenery was amazing as well.

You are a really good writer as I must emphasize again . You had me enthralled with your description of cleaning. There was a plot, a protagonist, you, an antagonist, time and ignorance. Your acute perspective of the "crime scene" and your curios unraveling, leading to a solution. Even objective observations.

Sorry I know you were writing about your day, I applaud your fervor, which I "envy". But you do write very well, that distracted me.
I have made a mental note of "The Swiffer Floor Duster Car Cloth" suggestion. Walls are a pain.

No stay awake. Take a tweezer and pull out your nose hair. What ever it takes.
I have really weird stuff to tell.
EDIT
OK it is sleepy time, I get it.

I need to retire too soon. It was very odd though and related to the Shed.

For those who are down and out, sometimes you have to grab the universe by it's proverbial throat and yell out loud and clear:

I see night posted it already. I'm well enough, staying at my brother's house of late. Still the same mentally as always, which is to say, not well. Still struggling to apply myself, or even know myself, to be honest.

I see we have similar issues to deal with. I wish you strength as you walk your path, it may lead to something better, or easier.

Sometimes healing is an ongoing process and it is comforting to have our fellow Shed family by our sides.

That reminded me of an old meme. It has a tiny kitten with a sad face and a text "You were gone forever, i counted!"


ETA: I searched it
