Between fighter practice on Tuesday and stump pulling yesterday and today, I am one sore chick.

But!  I'm so happy about what we're doing that it's not funny.  Poor Liam is going to have to deal with all this new stuff when we're gone different places, but ooooooh!  It looks sooooo shiny!

Lemme show you!

This is what the front of the house used to look like:



Icky grass, UGLY hedges, and not a flower in sight...

Well, this is what it looks like now (or at least for the next few hours...then there will be MOAR stuff!):





Tomorrow, the last of the ugly shrubs are going to be pulled up and more roses put in, I think.  There will be climbing roses on the columns of the front porch, and another climber on the wall next to the established climber.  Tomorrow, we finish putting in the roses, re-lay the soaker hose and and take shameless advantage of the city's free mulch program.

The front of the house look SO much more inviting, already.  Granted, we're going to have to learn to take care of roses, but I think we can do that.  I've already found a great feeder/insect control/disease control solution from Bayer, so I'm thrilled with how it's all turning out.

And so...

The living room floors are coming along nicely.  My hands are fairly blistered, but those heal.



The darker floors are going to help with the fact that all of the walls soar to the second story and the space is...HUGE.

Started badly and only got worse from there.

To wit: 



I was hoping to find out today if it's repairable or not.  *sigh*

I'm okay, I'm already seeing a doc for ouchies and sore muscles and I've cried my head off a few times.  This was a present from John, the first car bought for me because he simply thought it would make me happy.  Not because it was practical, not because it was a "good" idea, but because he knew I wanted one, and it makes him happy to make me happy.

If I haven't said it, my life rocks and I have the most amazing amount of love in my life. 
soldiergrrrl: (I quit)
A few weeks ago during the beginning fighters practice, I threw an offside shot kinda wonky and got an unpleasant twinge from my left thumb.  It's been hurting on and off, and tonight, while pushing down on a child gate, I felt/heard a horrible pop from the bottom joint of the thumb and about fell over.

I'm so mad I'm about to cry.  I do NOT want to hold off fighting, but  I need to find out what I did to my thumb.

OW OW OW OW OW OW OW.
