Yesterday's work for Ms. G included moving almost 400 pounds of cat litter.  She had found it on sale, so she stocked up.  We changed out all of the boxes and still had 8 of the 37 pound buckets to store for later.  Then i vacuumed and we started clearing out a closet.  To say i was sore and tired when i came home is an understatement.

Boudreaux, he know him 'bout dat hard work, too.  De day befo', he been out cleanin' an' rebuildin' de stuff dat done flooded a bit ago.  It done been a long job, an' Clothile been tellin' him he need get him some he'p.

Well, he come in from de work, an' he set him down in de chair, an' den Clothile hear him yell, "Owww!"  She come runnin' in an' ax, "Boudreaux!  What be wrong wit' you?"

An' Boudreaux he say, "Mais, you be right!  I need get me some he'p wit' de work.  You know you be serious hurtin' youse'f when it hurt to push de button on de remote!"

  4. Awesome post for Silly Sunday. I'm going around to read everyone's Silly Sunday now because its fun :)

  5. Oh, Mimi! That is a LOT of heavy cat litter to move around!! I wish you didn't have to work so hard, and I pray that this next year will find your life a little easier. You amaze me with your determination to get it done, never complaining. You are a great example to us all!

  6. Oh my. I wouldn't have bought that much cat litter even if it had been on sale. I hope you had the chance of a good hot bath afterwards, that's always relaxing.


Thanks for meandering by and letting me know you were here!
