This past weekend, we were able to finish putting up the new fence. 120 new slats. 9 new 2x4s. A Skil saw and a nail gun. and it's done. But, I hurt. My muscles were hurting so much that I was hobbling around the house. Sitting down was Hell, to say the least, but we did get that fence done, which is one more step towards moving. I should add that working all day in 90 degree heat is not the best option, but you do what you have to, right?
Yesterday....around evening time, I started feeling a little better....which was a major relief. (I think I'm immune to Tylenol, btw...) I was getting ready for bed....doing the typical stuff....water for the pets, make sure the kids are getting ready for bed themselves...and then I decided to walk the dogs. I usually let them out one by one, because the Golden is overly exciteable, so while Paco is trying to pee, Gordo is there jumping all over him, and he looks at me like 'Mom, please. Do something.' so it's just easier for me to let them out one by one. BUT, Jesse had sprayed the back yard with some bug spray, so I needed to walk them on a leash in the front instead of just opening the door and letting them out. Paco is a good dog. He goes out, does his thing, trots back up to the door and there he is. But, I decided I wanted to just let Gordo out while Paco was out, too. I put the leash on him, let him out the front door, he went bounding off after Paco, and I didn't realize how much slack I had left on the leash. Turns out it wasn't that much. If I had realized that, I could have let go before I was jerked forward. The side of my face and my entire left side met with the porch pillar in the most painful way one can imagine. Bad enough that I was crying for about an hour and a half, and Tylox didn't even help. I laid in bed with an ice pack til 3 AM and it still didn't feel any better. (I really felt bad because I couldn't help myself from crying, the pain was THAT bad....and Adrian was laying next to me crying because he felt so sorry for me. We were a sad bunch, for sure...)
At any rate, I don't think I will be doing much moving around today.
