That's how I feel today after spending 3 hours in the yard.  I took advantage of the cooler weather today... it is only 84 degrees... and went out to mow the grass and pull the weeds in the yard.  I literally woke up, put on some clothes and went outside.  You see, I am down to two weeks until the husband returns from Iraq, and I don't want it to look like I haven't done ANYTHING in the yard since he has been gone.  Well I haven't, but HE doesn't need to know that!

These are all of the weeds that we pulled today....

 ...that came off off this hill.

I know that looks like crap, with the tarp showing and all that old pinestraw coming off, but that is something I'm going to tackle another day.

It was so horrible and so manual labor-ish and my manicured nails were red underneath the pink and white gel.  AND there was dirt under them.   AND I was sweaty and sweaty in places that probably shouldn't be sweating.  AND I sweat in my hair which means that I have to make time to wash it.  UHGH!  I so don't like yard work!

I am literally too pooped to pop as I lay here in my bed on my laptop wondering how I am going to get up and make it to the commissary today to shop for groceries for the block party tomorrow.  I am trying to figure out if I even want to go and pick up my birth control prescription, which is really important because, well... Hubs IS coming home in two weeks.  I'm too drained at this moment to clean anything in the house and I'm praying that NO ONE comes over today and sees my shame, as I have not monitored the cleaning of the house today and I have no idea if the boys have cleaned the bathroom or the kitchen yet.  And on top of all that, the fireworks are going on on the base tonight and that is a tradition I just never miss.  I love the fireworks display.  I guess I better get UN-EXHAUSTED and get back to work!

I was sweating just reading about all the hard work. Hope you had time to drink a large glass of ice tea or something. Just think, when the hubby is home, he'll take back over the yard work again. When are you heading out to AZ again?

Give yourself a break girl! You went to town today!! How great that you are getting everything ready for his return, he'll appreciate it and you'll appreciate that there are no more weeds! Why in the heck didnt you wear gloves?? I dont get my nails manicured anymore, they always get messed up which aggravates me thoroughly lol.
