My Body Hurts!!!

Hey there friends. Man, my body hurts. On Sat, I was expecting a delivery from Lowes. I'm going to lay some cement to extend our patio area. Lowes got here early but the dude came with an 8 foot wide forklift that was NOT going to fit in my little ass 2 and half foot wide door. So what's the solution? Leave your shit on your lawn!

This is the half I left on the lawn...

Man... The dude drove the forklift and dropped 3 palettes of Quikrete cement on my lawn. I had to carry all 110 bags of the stuff from the front lawn to the back of the house and they are bags of 90 lbs each. I had to do it in two days, seeing that on Saturday, we had parties to go to and there was no way in hell I was going to move all of that and get ready for parties.

And here is the rest of it.

We ended up leaving the house about and hour and half after the cement got there so I left more than half of it on the lawn hoping that no one would take it. Like someone was gonna run by and snatch it. lmao Come Sunday morning, sore as hell, I dragged myself out of the bed and finished the job. So now I have 110 bags of cement sitting on my patio out back and my forearms feel like their about to rip open. On top of that, we start the gym today... I think today's workout is going to be light. Maybe do more running and leg work than heavy weight lifting and arm work.

I have pics of the cement sitting on my lawn and were I moved it in the back. I'll post those later since I left the cam in the car and I'm feeling waaaaaaay too lazy to walk out there and get it. lol Later!


  1. I feel your pain! Good luck with the project and be sure to take before and after photos -- something I always forget to do, then want to blog about it but feel stupid going on about how great it turned out when I can't show people how ratty it looked to start with.


  2. Hey there Margaret. We plan on doing that. We have made so many changes to our house to make it our home and we didn't snap pictures of the transformation so we told ourselves that we will be snappin' pics of everything we do from now on. Once I get the project started, I'll provide updates. Thanks!
