Wow, I just spent my entire day in my flower beds today. I am beat. I love it though. I am hurting already, but I kinda felt like it was worth it. I had to get these new plants in today! I ordered them online, and they started growing in the plastic bags, LOL. Last weekend I had to get the 50 trees I ordered in the ground too! Two weekends in a row of this and I am smiling, but hurting. I really love my flowers, it is something my mom taught me to do, but man it is only the beginning of the season and I am dead on my feet. I still have tons more to get planted. By the way, hubby and I live on six acres. The land was just about empty, very little done to flower beds, and a lot of grass to mow. It was fine 2 years ago, but with fibro now it is getting really hard to keep up. Hubby god love him is a computer guy, doesn't know a thing about flowers. He helps when he can, especially with the grass, but the flowers are pretty much my responsibility. Should I have not bought all of these? I tried to make things easier on myself by buying a whole bunch of Perennials so I guess this year will be rough, but should be easier next year. I am trying my best to bring property value up, landscaping can really help. We are going to try and sell this place in a few years to get something smaller for us to manage, but till then I thought adding all of this now would help. Besides I just love my flowers. What to do, they are depending on me, LOL! Maybe soon it will get easier, just water and weed. but right now in OH, the only thing in flower beds are the weeds that started growing a month ago!

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
