You know how it is. You go out to get a job done and just keep going and going until you finish, no matter the pain, because the gain will be SO worth it. Well I'm moaning and groaning this morning like a little old crotchety woman!! Even Cooper looked at me cross-eyed!!
This was the problem, only it was much worse because in this picture most of the water had subsided. We needed to figure out a way to get water away from the house. There are more extensive rains expected this week. I started work at 6:00 am when it was around 80 degrees.
After 5-1/2 hours of hard work, I spent the rest of the day on the couch not moving an inch. I must say that TV is pretty boring this time of year.
I finally took a couple of aspirin and headed over to the Chance house for dinner. Patty made her famous chicken taco soup, which was worth all that shoveling. It made me feel so much better that I actually played with Cooper a few minutes before crashing on the couch.
Moan, groan, uggghhhh ... I'm not as sore as I thought I would be this morning, but my hips aren't exactly happy with me. Surprisingly, the rest of me is pretty good. What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger.
This morning I'm off to have my oil changed in the truck and to ask if they know where I can buy half pipe. I imagine there will be lots of phone calls while I try to come up with 45 feet of the stuff. Wish me luck.
