Ear Buds for the Win!

I recently mentioned that I’ve started an upper body fitness challenge, and it became very clear this morning how extremely necessary this is for me!

Mr. T had to be at school at 8:30 am for a cheer function and while I didn’t want to, the yard really needed to be mowed.  Normally we split the task – I weed eat and he will mow.  Unfortunately, we just haven’t had a free weekend – and we won’t have a free one for a bit – and even though Mr. T was gone today, I was still here.

And my neighbor was working on his yard.

Peer pressure!

I pulled out the lawn mower.

Pressed the prime button as instructed.

And yanked.

And yanked.

And yanked.

And yanked

And yanked

And yanked.

Then I stepped away, took a deep breath…

And then, well,

See above…

I swallowed my pride and popped my head over the fence and asked my neighbor for help.

And he proceeded to start the mower on the first try.

So, it became clear to me this morning that picking an upper body challenge was the smart move for me!

But wait – it gets better!

Apparently some ants decided to make a home in the back yard, but I didn’t discover them until I had run them over and one or three dozen decided to bite me!

Well, I won’t stand for that.

So I walked over to the back door and then stopped.

I really wanted the ant spray.

But I couldn’t let go of the lawn mower.

But I really needed the ant spray.

But I’ve already proven that I can’t start my own mower!

Problem solved!
