Please, don't - touch - me!
Well, I'm in a bit of pain now. This morning I started the garden. I planted lettuce, carrots, and strawberries. I forgot how much work it is moving dirt around, digging holes and such. It was quite breezy today and I have a bit of the wind burn look, quite lovely, I'm sure. I was going to plant the rosemary too, but I thought I would wait and put it in a planter. Good thing I decided to do that. Another blogging friend of mine showed a picture of her rosemary bush - yeah, BUSH! Those things get HUGE! So, if I had put it along with my garden, it would probably be a big bush bully and take over the place (like the watermelon did last year). So now my back hurts and my shoulders hurt. I know, I know. I can hear you say, "Quit your whining!" Well, I didn't stop with the gardening. I also groomed my dog today. She's been needing a bath and a haircut for some time now, but since she decided to roll around in the horse doodie that was in the garden, I figured today was as good a day as any to clean her up. NOW, I'm really in a world of hurt. I don't want to move, or breathe, either for that matter. Forget supper tonight! The family will just have to fend for themselves. It won't be the first time they've eaten cereal for dinner, and I'm sure it won't be the last. Well, gotta go and lie on the heating pad - ouch!
