When I Asked For a Break.


July 15, 2022 by sandwichcontrol

I didn’t mean back-BREAKing work.

Today’s theme is: road.


That’s me standing in the road.

Yesterday was fucking brutal.

Particularly on my back.

I was just starting to recover from painting the laundry room all weekend.

So of course I had to do my food bank run and pick up 400 pounds of meat and another couple hundred in canned goods.

Then the tile showed up for the laundry room.

That was another 315 pounds of “shocking” VCT to haul around.

After hauling all that crap around I rested in a soft chair for the rest of the day.

Just kidding.

I scraped the old tile off of the floor.

More accurately, I scraped about half the tile off of the floor.

Because it’s the only thing in Lippincottonia that’s actually adhered properly.

So I get to look forward to more scraping today and tomorrow.

And then I get to lay the new tile.

Let me tell you, it’s pretty awesome to be married to my massage therapist.

She pretty much gets to undo all the damage I do to myself doing things that she asked me to do.

It’s a pretty fair deal.


Enough talking.

Time to demolish some tiles.

See ya’ tomorrow.

More soon. ~SC
