First Sign of the Apocalypse (If you Believe in that Sort of Thing)

twins fightingI did yard work yesterday. Real yard work. I tore out some bushes. I pulled them out, cut them out and bagged them up.

And the kids helped. Sort of. If you count wearing gardening gloves and fighting among themselves as helping they helped a lot.

I’m actually sore. I guess I don’t normally use my armpit muscles.

I would show you my work, but seeing as how I took the bushes out it would just be a picture of dirt and it wouldn’t be all that interesting.

A picture of my kids fighting in gardening gloves, on the other hand. That is entertainment.

  1. HAHAHA, I can just hear Claudia screeching “Ew! Dirty gloves!” in that picture. Thats cute.

    I hate when my armpit muscles get sore. My husband never wants to massage my armpits and I just don’t understand why.

  2. So you spent the day doing hard yard work? Did that burst of energy I’m supposed to get as a “nesting instinct” somehow fly past Ohio and over to your house?

  3. Wait, is Princess gardening in gloves and a dress?

    (If not: How did you convince her to wear something other than a dress?)

    Yardwork. In a dress. Remind you of anyone? I’m just saying, maybe your crazy neighbor is rubbing off.

  4. I’ll pay them 20 bucks to come rake my leaves from last year.

  5. I want a picture of you doing yard work. I’ve taken to pulling weeds out of the lawn recently, which is just as amazing.

  6. I blew off our back patio with our electric leaf blower. That has got to count for something, dammit! 😉

  7. I really like your blog. I’ve added you to my blogroll. I hope that’s okay. I hope you’ll visit my blog. It would be great if you’d add me to your blogroll. Cheers!

  8. Now that you’re all warmed up, I’ve got six bushes and two small pines that need to be removed. When will you be here? 😉

  9. You’re supposed to pull out the bushes, shove them into your house threw an open window, along with plenty of dirt, make a replica of Wyoming’s Devil’s Tower, and get sunburned on one side of your body.

    Then the kids wouldn’t be fighting each other, they’d be helping.

  10. You can call me, 'Sir' says:

    You should’ve given the blue one a spade and the pink one some shears, then pointed to the bushes and said, “I hid presents under them” and then filmed the carnage.

  11. Do they cut grass as well?

  12. I’ve trained mine to actually pull weeds. And they know what is a weed and what isn’t. Sort of.

  13. I love how the gloves make her hands look huge…

  14. Sounds like a productive day! Cute pic!
