Last fall, I fertilized and overseeded my lawn three times. Unfortunately, the seed also got on my crushed pea stone driveway. I spent 2 hours yesterday and 2 hours so far today pulling grass and weeds out of my driveway. The 6" closest to the granite cobblestone border is particularly well established. I probably have another 8 hours of this to go.
So, I called my weekend job yesterday saying I was beyond sick and couldn't come in.
They couldn't find a replacement for me after all the times I've replaced them while they were sick.
So I quit. Was I out of line? Maybe. Was I also going to quit in three weeks? Yes. My personal health takes precedence over some minimum wage job, especially when I have a career I go to mon-fri.
Damn you tree root at the top of a hill making me slide down the hill on my back!!
When I was studying for my ASE certs, I was in class from 7:30am till 2:30pm working on cars then at the shop from 3-11pm every weekday plus Saturday and every other Sunday.
If your body is already telling you it hurts, the years ahead of you are going to suck.
Nah, I'm used to the physical pain now, doesn't bug me anymore, my immune system said "**** you" and I've had a bad cold since Thursday.
I don't have the energy to rant. Just to give my most heartfelt words I've ever written on this forum, or anywhere public:
Keep your family close to you. Tell them you love them, and make sure first and foremost that if someone is in need, you take your personal bullsh*t, your pride, your anger, your hatred or grudges, and kick them to the curb as hard as you can and you be there for them.
As much as any of us want to think we have important things in our lives. Nothing, NOTHING matters as much as your family. Nothing.

But the front-load one will run a two-hour long cycle where it keeps it really hot the whole time -- it is the first time I have been able to keep pillow cases more than a couple of months.

Improving the signal-to-noise ratio
Ugh, painting. I am not a fan. Disliked the color my guest bath was painted, so spent the weekend painting it. Prep, prime, prime, color, de-prep. And now I had that much time still left to do in details, because of the piss poor job they did. Paint on ceiling? Check. Primed, and now I need to color match. Paint on tub? Check. Paint on medicine cabinet mirror? Check, but now cleaned off. And on top of that, there is the fine lines where masking covered up a little of the original color, so I'll have to go back with a small brush to touch up all those areas.

All opinions are not equal. Some are a very great deal more robust, sophisticated and well supported in logic and argument than others.
Dolan comics aren't funny.
That's all I got for now.
Home appraisers are quite possibly the most self-absorbed, over-confident douche canoes on the planet. Hey *******, learn how to do your job, and accept the fact that you are human and therefore fallible. 10% under the agreed-upon contract price (especially when two other people made similar offers within THREE DAYS of listing) implies that maybe, just maybe, you're incompetent. And when three different agents send you comps suggesting that you adjust your appraisal, stamping your feet and sticking your fingers in your ears just makes you an even bigger fool.
