I have been fighting with my BIL's old half worn out, but handier than a shirt pocket bucket truck(van) the past couple of days. Got most of the bugs worked out except the leaking heater core. I think we will just by pass that rather than try to replace it.
So today I start early and spent the morning in the bucket around the house adding some trim pieces and doing some odds an ends getting the house ready to paint. Lots of stooping and ducking getting in and out of the bucket to move the van, Then stoop and duck back in the bucket etc. By 1 PM I have everything pretty much done. Well there is one piece that the bucket just won't reach because of the height and the fact I can't get the truck 2 feet closer! It's just out of reach!
So I quit for lunch and we ate out on the patio. Get ready to get up and do something and my knees hurt and are stiff. My back is stiff. I realize how tired I am when I get up. I hate to admit it but I this stuff, all though it is still fun. Just isn't as easy as it was 10 years ago! I am starting to understand now!
