Dog bite

Wondering how many contractors, going into customers houses have been bitten?

Neighbor's Pit got loose, ran up to me as I was in my yard, chomped my arm and ran off. One canine tooth deep in forearm.

Dang, it hurt. Going into hysteria probably didn't help cause I misdialed 911 several times.

As advised, went to ER for antibiotics and tetanus.

The next night went to a Walk-in clinic as my hand and arm were swollen and painful. That Dr...

injuries

Surprised I don't see more posts about injuries on here. I did read recently about a man who needed stitches from running his thumb into a saw.

It's a wonder I haven't done this before, with the clutter from moving everything out of a room to paint or from over reaching when I'm at the top of my ladder.

This week tripped and fell backwards. It was the strangest thing. I went flat down on my back and it was like in slow motion. I've tripped before and quickly reached...

I'm trying to think of how to make this work more enjoyable. Alcohol comes to mind.

I made an actual list of all the work. 21 freakin things to paint. Some rooms, like the kitchen, only need the baseboard along one wall painted.

Not fond of changes (new sidewalk)

After buying this house last year I've been fairly satisfied with the neighborhood. Biggest complaint is that while I love my corner lot the busy, 2 lane, side street has a sidewalk on my property and I'm constantly having to pick up trash. I think most is thrown out of cars as it appears during the night. I REALLY hate touching someone else's trash, beer cans, candy wrappers, cigarette butts, even if I wrap a plastic bag around my hand. It's all disgusting. I'm in the process of filling the...
