I Ache And I Still Have To Cut A Tree!


Good grief, I ache today and I still have much to do before Friday evening. Steve and I have to go cut down our Christmas tree, which means, I do the cutting with a hand saw and we load it up on a sled and drag it back to the barn and have shaken and tied and loaded in the truck and then we drive it home and drag up the stairs and piss and moan over whether it's straight and then I decorate. We also have major shopping to do and I don't mean Christmas shopping, just stuff we need before kids all arrive home. I have two of three bathrooms to clean yet and the 30 x 20 extension, which includes the litter pans and before I get started, medicate one of the horses. That means I have to wrestle a 1100 pound creature for eye drops and icky medicine she has squirted in her mouth and that's before they get fed, including feeding the goats that turns into a round up. Yesterday I cleaned the loft (my office and media room), stairwell and wall library, the formal sitting room with fireplace, spiral stairs down to first floor which is like the basement as this is a converted barn and in the "basement" is the apartment that needed a touch up, several loads of laundry and Steve and I put up 60 foot of Christmas lights, Oh and I topped up the the water troughs outside. I think I over did it a bit. My legs are so achy in spite of ibuprofen.

I know, it is crazy. Ya need to pop over to my Midwest Horse blog and see the grand old ugly tree that we got. Thought we'd stick to a small tree and ended up lugging home the ugliest 13 foot tree I've ever seen. I have no idea how we got it into the house and up and decorated. We had no idea it was that big.

Wow! I'm impressed! You have been like a whirling dervish. where do you get your energy from? Are your aches from overdoing it and the MS or from the Interferons?

I really don't know why I ache. I don't think it's the interferon. Because I have ached for a couple of years after business. I'm good as long as I keep going. As soon as I stop for even 15 minutes, I'm stiff and it's hard to move.I think it's the MS. And most of what I do, is the farm daily chores.
