things i oughta be doing

i should wash my car. it hasn't been washed since june. really. and the interior needs to be sent to a french drug testing lab to see what sort of chemical nightmare has been created by the combination of spilled slushy, crushed donuts, smashed chocolate granola bars, smooshed french fries, and cardboard fragments.
there's a piece of siding that has gone awry on my house. it's right over the garage, so i could climb out a window and shimmy over to it, and perhaps pop it back into place. on second thought, i probably shouldn't shimmy to do anything, much less shimmy to fall to my death.
i need to power wash and seal my deck. i did it two years ago. or was it three? i should remember because i pretty much blasted small holes in the wood every few inches. the power you feel with massive water pressure is addicting. i followed that up by dousing the deck in sealer. it didn't dry for a week.
my gutters need cleaning. they always need cleaning. we have a forest right around the house, and the gutters literally fill with debris within a week of a professional cleaning. that is no joke. so, at $100+ per cleaning, multiply that by 52 weeks a year....yeah, they may just stay clogged.

good thing i can use the excuse that i'm busy working at the business, and have no time for such mundane household chores. i'd look pretty lazy and useless otherwise.

Ok friend, No more excuses! Let the " beautiful wife" do them for you with our newly invented, American Made, lightweight, but durable, Gutter Clutter Buster rain gutter cleaning tool.
If a 71 year old "granny" can clean out all her rain gutters with this tool that "beautiful wife" certainly could do it, unless she says, "Let's Make A Deal!" You clean gutters I'll was the Chevy! (lol)
Please visit my web page at and you can see for yourself how easy it is to use. Of course as high as your gutters are you may have to add 3 to 4 shop vac wands to the tool to vacuum out all the debris. Check it out and see how you guys might save time and a "buck or two."
Stay well, stay safe, and stay strong for that great family you have. God Bless You and Your Family. Love your blog! Jean
PS: I'm the one in the pink sweater in the video...waving at you!
