Last night, in a frenzy of 'get the lawn mowed before it rains Tuesday' I mowed the slightly damp lawn with the reel mower.

Short aside: Our Scotts reel mower rocks, and is totally a cheap date in these days of rocketing fuel costs.

Pushing the mower through the slightly damp grass was quite a workout. So much so, that any movement of my shoulders really hurts. Ever try to get through the day without moving your shoulders?

So, while the lawn was mowed before today's rain, my arms hurt enough that my eyes watered in pain while I washed and dried my hair this morning.

I'm off to think of dinner items that can be ingested through a straw...

  • beer
  • wine
  • ice cream shakes

Steak n' Shake makes a really, really good sippable sundae. :)

I have had those "ow!" days. Especially after spending an afternoon digging post holes or pounding in T-posts. OW!

At least you got it mowed before this rain...I'm just going to go home and watch mine grow another few inches. *sigh*

While you may not be able to move your shoulders I bet you can do a mean river dance right now.
