Getting my priorities straight

Getting my priorities straight


Right now we are working on our terrace, so the basement doesn’t get wet. My husband suggested I clean the decking tiles with a high pressure cleaner before he takes them down. I liked the idea very much, because it gives me the oppurtunity to contribute to this project – with many things I can’t help because of my back.

Turned out it wasn’t as easy as I thought. Standing for a long time bent over is not very comfortable for my back. Soon I realized I would need many breaks and time, and that I wouldn’t be able to keep up with all the chores. This annoyed me, but I couldn’t help it.

Somehow I grudgingly accepted I can’t do everything, and my husband agreed as well. I will just do the basic chores and clean everything thoroughly next week. We want to finish working on the terrace as soon as possible, because we want to sit outside this summer after all!

As you can see in the picture above, cleaning the decking tiles was absolutely necessary. It was hard work, but it was fun as well. So it was absolutely worth to change plans and get my priorities straight.

  1. You’ve got a high-pressure cleaner? 😮 If it was my home, I’d be given a brush and a bucket of water and my dad would say “Here, go scrub the tiles. Go full Cinderella on them. You can do it.” 😀

    1. At least I know now why my husband insisted on buying a high pressure cleaner, it helps a lot. I like the saying “go full Cinderella on them”, it made me chuckle. Poor Cinderella surely didn’t have an easy life before she met the prince 🙂
