I am here, but exhausted

I collapse in my chair at night. We have been doing yard work for 5 days in a row. We have covered every flower bed around my whole house.

150 bags of mulch I have handled and hauled to my husband and he has put down. We handled them twice. Once to unload off the delivery truck and then to put on a wagon and haul to the yard.

It is finally done. I couldn't sleep last night. I had leg cramps and was probably dehydrated. I finally drank some juice for the potassium and fell asleep, but was awake every 45-60 minutes all night long.

I tried laying down and was awake every 20 minutes. Hopefully I can get some rest tonight. I have been drinking a lot today. We got up and I mowed before it go to hot. We have a rider so it wasn't to bad.

I have done some hand work trying to relax at night, but it is the hexies so it is going slow. It is so hot out now I will be inside for days until it cools off.

It was hot yesterday, but today is a day well you know. Heat indexes is 99 degrees. So it is scorcher out there.

My Grandson started Football practice this morning so I am sure he is in the cool house trying to recover the first day. School starts in about a month which doesn't seem possible. So I will be taking kids shopping for supplies and school clothes soon. The year is flying by so fast. chris

Please don't over do it. We are not spring chickens anymore. I hope you're done with the heavy duty chores. Glad to be reading your blog again. Hugs.
