This weekend I got some work done around my house. More specifically, I cleaned out my eavestroughs. As someone relatively new to home ownership, it was a new experience for me. I wasn't sure what to expect before I went up the ladder, and it took a bit to find my rhythm, but once I got going it really wasn't too bad. I mean it was kind of gross and I've definitely added some items to my shopping list (ie better work gloves.. I'm thinking maybe the kind sewer workers use.. did you say waterproof and insulated? sign me up!), nonetheless I'm finding that the scary things about being a home owner are mostly only scary before you have tackled them once.
