    i am a stay at home mom

    my husband sometimes gets on these jobs that are 7 days a week 10-12 hours a day.

    i feel that i should do everything i can to help him with his jobs that he would do when he isnt working that schedule.

    Since he is so supportive of me staying home even though we struggle alot.
    So heres my rant

    the front yard despratly needed to be mowed, i dont stress on the back as no one can see it but our front blends with our neibors and i feel its wrong for ours to look like crap.

    it is big and a slant, kinda hilly...

    so i went out there and mowed and now i feel like i am going to throw up from the pain...

    guess i should go soak in a bath

    Try not to stress yourself...Is it possible for a young kid looking to make a few bucks, would cut your yard. I remember back in the good ole days when, as a teenager, I would cut the neighbors yard and would only get payed two dollars. It would be three dollars if it was a corner yard.

    I know times have changed and they would want more but maybe some helpful person would cut it for a reasonable amount that's fair to you and them. Especially if they knew your situation. (I'm just feeblely trying to help.)

    And I'm sure your supportive in more ways than you know. And I'm sure he understands..

    Hon, I'm sorry you had to mow. I would've just let the darn crap grow until someone come over to mow it... oh wait, I have to mow, LOL, oh well. But I have my dad mow the half that I cannot.

    Hope the bath is helping! {{{{{{{{{{{Hugs}}}}}}}}}}}

    "EPSOMS SALT"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I swear by that stuff it really works!

    You have to make the water as warm as you can stand it............and soak for as long as you can tolerate it.................you will notice a difference!

    When my kids were ( or are ) sick I make them soak in epsoms salts and it always makes them feel better right away!

    Hugs and hugs and hugs hoping your feeling better soon............"Oh and no more mowing for you Missy"! LOL

    Blessed, if you can't do it don't. It is not worth you getting sick. I used to do all the yard work because hubby works all the time. Now it looks like crap. I just can't do it. I had an asthma attack last time I tried and bp skyrocketed. That has been a couple years ago i think. Please don't force yourself to do it if it is going to make you sick. People will get over it.

    and when I try to help out and mow the yard I feel like I'm going to explode my face stays red for hours and I feel like I going to have a heat stroke! I kinda like mowing the yard it's something different than doing the house work which I can't really do much of anymore!

    Take care!
