When I started writing stories, I was compelled to do exercise and reflect on the power of being fit. I also mentioned I am not prone to hamster wheels.
Today my muscles are sore and it feels I ran a marathon. It hurts but I am doing something useful.
You might be wondering: — What did you do?
Instead of sitting on my couch spending hours watching episode behind episode on Netflix, I spent the weekend spraying and scratching the ceiling to remove the popcorn.
Removing that thing is the dirtiest job you can do at a house. First, you have to get a ladder and spray small chunks of ceiling. Then, you scrap with the spatula remove the white mud. Very carefully not to damage the dry wall.
Once I was done with the ceiling, I told my wife:
-“Now that we removed all the furniture, why don’t we change the bathroom tiles?”
She agreeed and then we kept adding stuff.
“We should add a drawer to the vanity, change the shower tiles and granite vanity tops…”.
A weekend project, turned in a month of weekends. At least. If the day is slow at work, I do my workout and demolish a wall.
The house looks like a battleground.
But it doesn’t matter. I enjoy doing stuff in the house and it is my way to keep my body in shape.
