OUCH OUCH OUCH!!!!
When we opened the door to the backyard this weekend and took a step outside it was almost like entering an area devastated by a tornado or nuclear bomb, really, that's how it felt.
Curt and I set to work, at 8am we stepped outside ready for battle. We started by moving the trampoline from the middle of the yard to the far back to give us more room. Then we moved the swing set too. Unbelievable, all of a sudden we had a LOT more yard than we thought. Now because Sam had dug up so many holes and torn out the grass, we were left with a patch of lawn and just dirt all around. We dug all that grass up and all the dirt, and this week we're getting the dirt ready for new grass.
By the time we stopped for the day it was 3:30pm and Curt and I could hardly walk. You don't realize how much work you're doing until you stop and then try to move again. I have pains in muscles I didn't even know existed. To top it off, my wedding rings cut into my finger without me realizing it, so now I have to keep my rings off which is just horrible. I feel absolutely naked without my wedding rings, but what are you gonna do???
So this morning I am soooooo sore. I can hardly walk, my arms are killing me, my lower back is killing me and I'm exhausted LOL
I'll keep you guys posted on our progress and will post pictures of the yard as we move through this huge project. Knowing our luck, the day we finish the yard is the day we get orders somewhere LOL
After stopping for the day, we came inside and everyone showered and dressed and then we sat down to watch a movie. King Arthur!!! LOVED it. We are huge fans of movies like that, medieval, dark ages, you name it. No surprise that our favorite movies are Troy, Alexander, King Arthur, First Knight, Excalibur, The 13th Warrior, Braveheart etc.
You have got to watch King Arthur though, it's just sooooo good. I also watched Tristan and Isolde last night and absolutely loved it too. Beautiful love story!!!
So today I can't be doing much, not being this sore, but I do have the never forgiving "laundry" (if you could see the snarl when I say it).
I plan on updating my food blog and setting up a new one for the Pug girls. I also need to get some graphics done for Lori Foster's store, so I guess I'll be busy at the computer.
One trip to the Airman's Attic later and probably the self help for a carpet cleaner (yet again), since cleaning the back yard and walking back and forth into the house has left my carpet a total disaster.
Well better get my day started if I'm going to get anything done. :)
Have a blessed day!!!
