I went outside after lunch...prepared to do a full afternoon of yard work. I had my water, my sunglasses. I had 2 helpers (who started off strong....and petered out quickly).
The first bed....I had to cut down the WAY overgrown Pampas Grass (I will be digging alot of it out and giving it to a neighbor). I managed to get a blister 90 seconds in when my hand got pinched with the clippers. Excellent. It took about an hour, but I got it all cut down, and the kids did a great job of picking it up and using the wheelbarrow to move it.
The second bed....didn't work out so well. About a minute into raking the leaves (the ones that G-man told me there weren't that many of and that's why he didn't take care of it last fall).....I saw it.
It was the elusive Spitting King Anacobraconstrictor....it was 100,000 feet long and it tried to swallow me whole. EW EW EW!!!!
My ever so supportive husband (who is at work) told me to move to another area. How am I supposed to keep working knowing that this gigantic monster was after me! He may have friends....he may have even BIGGER cousins.
I tried....I really did. But I was too freaked out. Thus concluded my yardwork for the day.
