Did I ever tell you how exhausting yard work can be?

Technically my mom was the one that was doing the yard work. I was out there in more of a supervisory position but somebody had do make sure she was safe.

Dad's riding mower is on the fritz until he can get a part for it and he hates using the push mower because it isn't what he calls self propelled. Any way, mom thought she was pretty tough and got the push mower out and started it up. Let me tell you she was doing an awful lot of huffing and puffing out there. She took a break and dad said don't worry he would finish it. Then he said something about it being too hard for mom and she shouldn't kill herself trying. Well the next thing I know mom
jumps back up with that "I'll show him" look on her face and she finished the mowing.  

I don't have real sleeves but I do have green furs.

Oh, I hope you are not really sore in the morning!!! Maybe a few aspirins will be in order.

I leave the mowing to my hubby!

I think your mom got tricked by your daddy to finish the job. *LOL*

I give you alot of credit Ann....my husband is in charge of the mowing as I am allergic to grass and my asthma attacks require hospital visits which cost a whole lot more!!

We have the green fur problem here too!

Anne said...

Duke, I am sure your supervision was required. I bet it wouldn't have been done anywhere near as well without your help. Your mom needs to be careful. I hope she is feeling okay today.

Sandra said...

Yard work IS tough work, but supervising is even tougher!

I leave the mowing to George. I'll do alot of work in the yard --but mowing is one thing I've never done. I'm sure I'd be huffing and puffing also....

Poor Duke--he has such a busy job being in CHARGE....
Hugs,
Betsy
