The last few days have been miserable with these allergies of mine. It almost feels like I have a cold. Speaking of cold.. it's been unseasonably chilly here this year, and the last two days have been so windy!
Ouch. I had to take a blogging break because I realized that today is Wednesday, and hubby hadn't taken the trash out. I'm so glad I had the thought to put on my shoes and jacket, (normally I would go barefoot) because I missed the trash truck by 15 seconds. That's ok, because the truck will come back up the other side after a little while. So, I drag the trash can across the street, pull it right up to the curb. As I did that, I stepped in a small hole, my ankle turned, (did I mention I'm wearing my flip flops?) and I fell backwards with the can coming on top of me. I swear my legs would have been straight in the air had it not been for the can holding them down. Yeah. It wasn't pretty. Fell right on my ass. Laugh... I will later! (except you Doug.. you aren't allowed mister!) ;)
Back to being windy. Doug went out to his car and rushed back in. Did you see what's in our back yard, he asks? I'm like, NO! So we run to the sunroom and there it is. Yeah, the tree in the backyard split sometime between 7:15am - 8am.
Poor sand table and umbrella. Their under there somewhere.
So happy the kids & dogs weren't out there when it split. I'm going to miss the privacy that tree provides. Maybe we'll plant a new one in the spring.
And as I'm sitting here looking at the title of my post, I realize how ironic LIFE can be sometimes. LOL
