I look at the younger me and wish I could tell her to ENJOY IT! I had no clue as to my physical power and endurance and in retrospect wish I had taken the moments to embrace it and reflect on the youth of my body at the time.
I have begun working for a landscaping company. My friend owns it and she just had major surgery so I offered up my help. OMG! 3 hours of bark mulch hauling up a ramp in a tiered garden and I HURT! I can barely bend my fingers and my knees are SCREAMING at me! LOL! And I hike almost every day....what the hell? Granted back breaking labour has not been my forte..lol....I am an accountant and desk and mind work are what I do but I didn't think my body would protest so much! LOL! Sat in the hot tub with Joe for 25 minutes...which was actually really fun as he is such a character....he had me laughing and just enjoying his company..then I had to get out.....OUCH! Didn't work...I hobbled to change and hobbled back to the couch...lol...and I have to do it all over again tomorrow. At least I already have callouses so my hands won't bleed....LOL!
So here I am a middle aged wreck...How did that happen? LOL! I will suck it up buttercup and do it all over again tomorrow because a promise is a promise and my word is my word.....but I really hope like hell we get a wicked rain storm and I can stay home and jump in my sauna to ease the aches...LOL! I accept I'm not 24 anymore but MAN! Wish I had appreciated it more. My Mom always said you will never be more beautiful or vibrant or strong as you are right now...and she was RIGHT! So I am thinking I will never be more beautiful and vibrant and strong as I am right now! This May 10th, 2011. And I will get up and be the best I can be tomorrow...and be grateful that I can.
Last score was 112/125 but I have to declare a day of colony clothes shopping. Got some really cute capped sleeved shirts and cotton pants at Reitmans. And I do have to get Sam a new pair of shoes...how do the sides blow out like that? I mean REALLY? What are you DOING my son? And Hubby bought a pressure washer retail...that I am in charge of setting up and using...hahahhahaha...that should be something to watch...maybe I should sell tickets to a comedy show and give the proceeds to the school...lol....
So the new score is 110/132....22 days of retail in 5 months....good grief! That SUCKS!
Hurting Big Momma love to you all. XXOO
