I was just thinking the same thing. I helped my son mow the lawn on Sunday...we traded on an off between the tractor and the push mower. I was a mess yesterday. But...I am determined to do it again anyway. Like you said...pain is pain is pain. I have felt just as bad doing nothing. Plus I fee guilty because the hubby is working 60 hours a week right now and helping with the yard is the least I can do.
Yes. that is exactly it Realest and Donna. There are still some things that I know I cannot do; like pushing a shopping cart that pulls to one side will exhaust me within a few minutes; and I cannot speed walk around town! But pain is pain and I might as well do the things I love. Realest, did it backfire on you or is it still working out ok?
I work through the pain too, and am just finishing raking out the garden areas. It has taken me "days" but it had to be done and boy does it look nice out there! I will be in pain no matter what, so I try to stay busy. I don't clean the whole house in one day, or anything like that, I would pay too dearly! But I do try to get something accomplished everyday. I have a 3 bedroom rambler with a huge yard and there is alot of maintenance keeping up this household, but it hasn't fallen to pieces yet.
Marlee...did you say Bon Bons...where's the bon bons? Let's see...bon bons or pulling weeds...bob bons or pushing a lawn mower up a hill...
I gotta think about this one...yeah, right!
