I Am TIRED

I keep forgetting I am not 30 anymore sometimes. Those stores offer help loading stuff but I almost never ask for it. I tossed 5 fifty pound bags of feed on a cart and then grabbed a 40 pound bag of dog food. Getting them on the cart isnt bad. But then I tossed all that in the bed of my truck. Next goofy me went to Lowes. I bought 5 forty pound bags of dirt there. Same thing. Cart then truck. This after doing the grocery shopping. But my workout was not done. Hubby helped unload and put away the groceries. Then he helped me load the wagon. The dog food did not go on it. BUT a bag of cat food in the garage did. 40 pounds also. With all that weight on it and the ground still damp from all the rain it took me pulling and him pushing to get the wagon out back. But I was not making 2 trips. It is all put in different trash cans now. That keeps mice, rats and raccoons out of it. He had mowed today. That made the areas that needed trimmed look very bad. So we took a bale of hay out to the horses and then I grabbed the weed whacker. The backyard looks decent again. Tomorrow afternoon or Saturday I need to do the front yard. Right now my batteries are recharging. I finally made dinner. It was simple. Egg noodles and a can of beef stew mixed in with them. Filling also. Then I fed rotten critters and took a hot epsom salt bath. Tomorrow should not have any heavy lifting at least. We will take a few things to the auction early. Then go to the Amish store for meat. Hopefully I will have time to visit here before it is time to go back to the auction. They are starting it early tomorrow. Hope your day was a lot more relaxed than mine was.

If your back goes out at least it will be only due to you overworking it and nothing else. I hope you will be able to manage it because no one should be lifting all that let alone a woman. But you get all your exercise and be safe.

Wow, you got a lot done, great. You know, if you feel that you're keeping someone employed, by asking for help with unloading to your vehicle, not help, how about that? You've already got exercise loading & pulling your purchases. Yummy dinner! This evening, I'll probably get a yogurt or soy beans...ate big brunch & was snacking all day practically.
Whew, sounds like you put in a long, hard day! I don’t know many 30 year olds who could keep up with you. Your dinner reminded me of a dish my mommy used to make by putting canned biscuits on top of a can of beef stew and baking it. I hadn’t thought about that in years.
