We cleaned the gutters out on the house today. It has been long overdue as I don't think it was ever adequately done (read: at all) last fall after the leaves fell. It is a job that I truly despise, for it requires getting on a ladder and sticking my hands in muddy composty crap that is truly disgusting. However, we knew that today it was going to rain at some point and our next shot at it won't be until Heidi gets back from California, so we cleaned them.
It was disgusting. With a capital D.
And at the end of it, I was disgusting. I don't know that I have ever been so sweaty in my entire lifetime. When I went in to take my shower, taking my shirt off was like peeling an exceptionally stinky grape, that's how stuck to me the shirt was (again, sticking to me like clingwrap.)
Here I am, looking exceptionally pleased to be cleaning gutters.
Cleaning the gutters AND bringing sexy back, all at once. I know, I'm such a multitalented individual.
And if the photo is not enough, here's me going on and on about having to the job, with some prompting from Heidi. (it's kinda dark and small because Heidi held the camera the wrong way.)
All in all though, a good Sunday. Believe it or not, getting that job done was completely satisfying.
