September 1, 2007
One benefit of growing up a tomboy, challenging myself to climb trees and conquer jungle gym equipment, became clear this weekend. The exterior of our house was in dire need of paint. Throughout August, I dabbed away one gallon at a time, anticipating the rebate sale that occurred over labor day. Fourteen gallons of exterior, a four inch brush, and rented scaffolding greeted me early Saturday morning.

Never having dealt with scaffolding before, I found it quite functional and easy to assemble. This, only because I have the requisite strength, agility, and fearlessness to assemble and work from the structure.
