Why HGTV doesn’t qualify as a reality channel.

Today is Day 2 of Cha Cha and Poochie’s Madcap Home Maintenance Adventure.

We painted the garage, futzed with my friend L.’s broken powerwasher, settled for spraying down the old metal shed with a regular hose, and repainted the shed by hand when the paint sprayer died.

We are exhausted. Did I mention it’s hot?

Poochie has downed two gallons of Arnold Palmer so far. It’s lemonade and iced tea, and if I liked iced tea, I’d think it was pretty good, too.

And at lunch today? Poochie decided that the one thing that would power him through the rest of the day was a Baskin Robbin’s ice cream cake.

Who was I to argue?

The kid at BR asked Poochie how many people he was feeding … and offered to write “We’re Done!” on the cake when Poochie explained the painting / siblings gorging themselves situation.

My garage is mostly done except for touching up trim. And the shed just needs one more coat. We’re eating chocolate cake and mint chocolate ice cream. Life is good. And this is what real house projects look like.
