Oh, my aching back...

I think I must have overdone it today in the yard. But, I really got some good clean up work done. I've been doing a little all along to keep the beds from getting too out of hand, but still, there was cutting back to do and my brick stepping stone had drifted away from one another, so when you stepped on one, you were as likely to slip between the bricks and twist an ankle as to actually stay out of the mud...well, if there was such a thing as mud down here anymore. And, I fed the beds and weeded and cut stuff back and cleared the paths... You know. summer clean-up. After that, it was off to the grocery and lunch and then house cleaning and then I made my real mistake and sat down to work on my checkbook for a little while and now I'm just not sure I can get back up :-). I wonder if I could get my little girl to do the aquarium water change???? No, probably not worth it.

Today is our 2 year anniversary. Sydney has been with us 2 years. Boy, there were plenty of times I didn't think we'd make it, but we did. Just 7 more years until high school graduation. yeah. But, we had a nice lunch. I bought a chicken roasted at the grocery and refrigerated mashed potatoes and frozen veggies. It was perfect. I didn't have to cook a thing. That's the best kind of anniversary meal, and now, Sydney's doing dishes.

She just finished polishing the bottoms of my copper bottomed Revere ware. She disrespected one of the camp counselors this week and now I have the shiniest pots and pans in town. Ain't parenthood grand?

Okay, well, I will get up, I will get up, I will try to get up. Y'all take care and I'll see ya round the blogsite. Lane

Wow, it seems like yesterday when you started telling us about Sydney coming to your house. She has come along way with your love and support. Motrin, my friend, is a wonderful thing...sometimes helps me get through the day. Karen

Wow! All that yardwork, and then the grocery shopping BEFORE lunchtime?! You are such a dynamo.
Happy Anniversary to you all, and congratulations on your progress together.

p.s. I like my Revereware copper bottom pots to shine, but I settle for clean. ;-)

Happy Anniversary! Gosh, what filled your days before Sydney? I certainly love reading stories about your trials and triumphs. Hope the back is feeling better!
