Well, I have a sunburn. I have been living in the west WAY too long. Who gets sunburns on ONE side of their body even after working outside all day? Its just not natural, and unfair. And on my left arm where I received my lovely lobster look, is now covered in bumps. Some sort of reaction to something, although I have idea what.
I also sit here with my foot under a bag of ice. About an hour ago I rolled my foot. Not my ankle mind you, but my foot. I know, I don't get it either. But I don't want to pay another doctor's bill so, I'm just going to ice it and will it to be perfectly fine by tomorrow because right now I can't walk on it AT ALL. Its interesting as well as painful to hop all over the apartment on one foot trying to keep up with four little kids.
I give you permission to laugh at the mental image.
I'm flying to Florida tomorrow for my sister's wedding and I can't exactly go hopping around the airport with Alayna. Poor girl would have some serious whiplash.
Its okay, I forgive for laughing at the mental image.
Anyone have any "ALL BETTER" medicine? I always give some to my kids but no one seems to have any on hand for moms.
Well, to make myself feel better I thought I would show off our latest accomplishment. Our soon to hopefully be garden spot.
What? You don't think its exciting? Huh, well that's just strange.
Actually, it was quite the adventure. The clay-like dirt here can get so stinking hard and with all the rocks that cover the ground we were a bit intimidated about getting started. But we bought a pitch fork with the intention of tilling the ground ourselves. Nothing like a little hard work to save money.
After trying and only successfully getting the pitchfork to go into dirt about two centimeters, we decided we should rent a tiller.
For two hours we tilled that 20 x 20 ft spot. At times the ground was so hard and rocky it looked like Luke was pushing a jumping bronco. I suppose we should have tied the kids to the top and let them have a wild west experience!
Man, how come I didn't think of that sooner? Oh ya, I was busy moving rocks.
In my humble and totally completely unbiased opinion, Luke had the easy job of pushing the wild tiller. I had to run around hauling, throwing, and raking rocks.
Have you TRIED raking rocks lately? Let's see a show of hands....... THAT'S what I thought.
Of course, after filling up the wheelbarrow full I wasn't able to lift it, so I let Luke have the glory and haul them off.
I know, I'm just so self-sacrificing.
