Sorry, I just have to toot my own horn today
Please join me with your own stories!
Ok, you would not know I'm a Flybaby if you walked in my house
: I am not quite with the program at the moment. It works great when I do it, but I don't always do it. However, if you had seen my house a year ago, yeah, there's a HUGE improvement and I'm proud
Anyway, here's what I did an hour ago.
The back exterior wall of our house had green algae or mold or something growing on it. It's been there since before I moved in here (8 years in May). All that time I keep thinking we should do something about that.
Today I'm out in the yard (warm and sunny!) and putting water in watering cans for the kids. I have the hose in my hand and think that I should try hosing off the green. Nah, that won't work. I need to rent a power washer. Or maybe this weekend I'll get the long handled scrubber out. Maybe some soap to do it right.
Then I realize that Flylady would be shaking her head at me. Don't wait til you can do it perfectly because perfect never comes. Just do it! (or is that Nike? :LOL ) So I start to hose off the wall.
I cannot believe I put up with that green junk on that wall for almost 8 years and it took 15 minutes to get most of it off!!!! (and that 15 minutes includes having to stop and refill watering cans numerous times!) Big, kelly green patches of growth on my house just melted off where the hose hit it (on high pressure). I couldn't reach well enough to do the very top and there are some faint green spots that will benefit from a brush, but OMG, the change is fantastic! The house is actually white again! Almost 8 years I lived with it because I didn't get around to doing it "the right way".
So part of me feels really stupid right now
but mostly I'm just really jazzed that I finally got the green off. Yay me!
