On Friday the 13th countless Bloggers awoke to find that their blogs were not functional. New posts were lost, comments erased, and I suddenly wondered what to do with myself. My morning routine of posting and reading was derailed, but before I could even collect my thoughts my husband whisked me away...
to Home Depot that is.
What a guy.
Actually, we ended up accomplishing more than I ever imagined. After perusing the garden center and other various locations of the store we settled on several projects for the day. My hands, feet, and legs were covered in dirt before long. I was contorted into positions no pregnant woman could ever comfortably be in (and my back sorely paid for it later that evening), but it was great. The sun beat down strong and I soaked in the heavy doses of Vitamin D. While I gardened, planting flowers here and there, rearranged plants, watered, and played with the dogs in the grass Shawn worked on our newly installed fence, adding a gate.
Hours later I was dirty and sweaty, but felt amazing. I had forgotten about my blog and in doing so remembered what it was like to get up off my duff and accomplish something with substance. While I love ya'll who come and read my blog (some of you everyday!) I hope that you don't forget to turn off your computer and disconnect once and a while. :)
