I'm painting the exterior of my house. IT SUCKS. It's a 70-year old clappboard house, there's a lot of scraping, and I have to keep replacing weak and rotten siding. IT SUCKS. Scraping sucks. Sanding sucks. Ladders suck (as does the DOOM-a-flatchie, which I have come to think of the 10-foot scaffalding). Priming SUCKS. My wife SUCKS for conning me into doing it while she's six hours away at school. ARGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!! I feel like a whiny bitch, but I had to share. I don't care how poor I am, I'm never taking on this home improvement project again. Ever. I'm paying someone else. Your experiences?
