Day 8- The Day of the Garden and a Short Workout


So up this morning relatively early for a day which I don’t have to work or do the school run. This was in aid of taking the husband to his hospital appointment, a follow-up from his ear surgery two weeks ago. The surgeon was as funny as ever commenting on my knitting sugar skull tattoo with it is nice reminds me of burritos and I like burritos. What a jovial positive person. I like that in a surgeon or doctor makes news a bit easier. It wasn’t too good news though. A CT scan and one possibly two more surgeries for him however, the surgeon is quite confident that his hearing will be restored once this is finished. A small price to pay not to lose something that is so important to all of us. He is now worrying about it to say the least. I am being positive saying that we won’t worry about it until we find out there is something to worry about and at this time there is not. The surgeon said he hoped it would be a simple removal of a polyp however my husband is a very complicated man and it turned out to be a bit more than that.

All we can do is wait. So once we got home from that and picking up the kids I decided that it was warm enough and I had to get rid of the jungle. The jungle was getting so bad that I was loosing both my dogs in its lush greenery. I was two weeks away from dressing up the dogs has lions and selling tickets to come see it. The husband got put back to bed as he had to work night shift and the surgeon did something to his ear with some silver nitrate. Oooh burny. Three hours it took me to get the garden to the state above. I mowed. I strimmed. I cut. I fell in a hole the dogs had dug trying to get to the other side of the world. I found the dreaded vine coming over the fence is in fact a blackberry bush. Yum, blackberries. I hate you bush. I hacked it to bits. I don’t care about blackberry cobbler you must die!

So that was done with a lot of blood, sweat and tears. Blood, cause every time I reset the strimmer a piece would fly into my leg and give me a small hole. Sweat, cause it was just bloody hot you know! Tears, stupid sweat in my eyes. I bet I have a stupid tan line as well arrrgh. Oh well the first stage has been done as you can see there is still rocks piled up I have to get rid of them. No clue what I am going to do. At the moment what I am going to do is get rid of the rubbish and move the rocks to a corner. Anybody want some rocks?

After this I successfully made the frog spawn some lasagna. Got the little one in for a bath and sent them to bed. I then decided no I won’t miss my exercise for today. I’ll just do a shorter one. So a 20 minute ab workout will be fine. No. Just no. I couldn’t give it anymore than I did after the gardening. Just so spent. I guess 200 calories isn’t so bad and I was still so sweaty. The picture doesn’t do it justice I was well sweaty and drippy. Bed is calling me with twinkle twinkle little bat, how I wonder where you’re at.

Goodnight all

Tomorrow is another day (A school day! Whaaat?!)

Just Get Up
