Yesterday I mowed the lawn, trimmed some bushes,
bundled brush, chopped some wood, and took a few
pictures. I saw the blue jay in the picture below
and I chuckled as I wondered if he knew about the
Angry Birds game.
When I returned to the air-conditioned comfort of our
humble abode my back decided to go out. It wasn’t bad
enough I needed the wife’s help getting my jeans on or
off, but it was a doozy.
Today is a better a day and except for a few spasms I
think I’m good to go. As long as I don’t have to bend
down, reach up, or lift anything. A small price to pay
for over doing it.
Because of said back problems I didn’t go upstairs and
wake the wife up for work. When she got downstairs she
about chewed me a new one. She stated when I don’t get
her up she envisions me collapsed on the floor unable to
move, even though that has never happened.
She knows my thoughts on the subject. A visit to the
doctor is a last resort. And where does the law of
averages fit into the picture you ask? Well, it has been
a while since this has happened and even though I can’t
finish the yard work it is raining as I write this.
I’ll take that trade off anytime and will have a plan B
for when the rain stops. While we’re waiting the wife and
I can stay inside comfy as two doves on a roof.
So it all works out in the end if you have the patience
to see it through. Whatever you do, do not say “it can’t
get any worse”. Even though God has a sense of humor he
does like a challenge.
