I have six bags of pine bark nuggets and a gallon of paint. I need to weed the carport flowerbed and put out the bags of nuggets. I'll need more, but that will get me started. I need to sand some places on the porch and paint. Larry said I didn't get the right paint, but it's exterior and blue, so I don't see what the issue is.
The thing is, buying the stuff indicates a need to do the tasks. Too bad that isn't all that is required. I don't want to weed or paint, I just want it to be done. So step one is getting the stuff. Check.
