Ouch, I think I broke my a$$

We managed to fill up a 4 yard dumpster this weekend with yard waste and other stuff. Nothing quite like yard work to show you just how out of shape you really are. At least the yard is almost back to where it was at the end of summer last year and on it’s way to looking better. We are having the dumpster dumped then returned for next weekend so we can clean out more stuff. We still need to put up a fence, finish the rest of a retaining wall, remove a ton of ivy, and clean out a bunch of stuff from the back of the house. Ugh. Somewhere in there I also need to find time for the boat so we can get it back in the water again.

My son paid me the best compliment ever this weekend. His mom was helping him ride his bike, and he’s starting to get it down pretty well. When he was done I was working on my bike and I was showing him all the parts – the chain, the gears, peddals, let him sit on the seat, etc…. Out of the blue he tells me, “Da-da, I want to be just like you”. Wow. And here I thought it was the other way around, that I wanted to be just like him.
