What a weekend!

Sunday, July 10, 2011

Oh my goodness! I don't know if I told you but I am an active member of my local American Legion Auxiliary ( I think I did though). Over the forth of july holiday we helped run a fundraiser selling paver stones with the armed forces logos on them. Friday I got a call from one of the other members in charge of the fundraiser. Long story short we needed to move the pavers from where they were and she didn't know what to do with them.

I offered to store them here at my house. Yesterday, they brought the stones here and between myself, My hubby, the other lady and her husband we move over 150 pavers. I was totally exhausted when we were done. I could barely raise my arms within the hour after we finished and today I feel like someone punched me in the arms. I asked hubby how much they weigh and he said depending on the stone anywhere from 50 -80 lbs each. HOLY COW! I know I move 43 by myself, that was when I stopped counting.


Today we went to the Renaissance Fair, It was 85 degrees (possible higher) We walked for hours. Had so much fun too! I will upload pictures tomorrow. I also managed not to eat too badly. I had 2 average bites of my daughters GIANT smoked turkey leg, some lemonade, a small pack of sugared almonds, no fried food, no Ice cream, no pop! emoticon

Hope you all had a really REALLY GREAT Weekend!

    That sounds like "real life workouts" to me! Now....how to log that....

    Way to go! I think the best part of your success was the "no ice cream and no pop!" part! Mmmmm...I love those giant smoked turkey legs. Sometimes I think they must come from ostriches!
