Last Tuesday our second load of pack got delivered. 5 yards
And because I'm a crazy person I decided to load a bunch of pack into the backyard by myself. It was not a smart decision. My back was very upset with me the next day. I did 40 wheelbarrow loads and Chris and I have started a weird OCD behavior of always loading 20 shovel-fulls into a wheelbarrow load. So at 40 wheelbarrow loads that made for 800 shovels into that big ol' pile of pack.
And into the backyard little mine field piles went
Let me just say: it sucked. I was a sweaty, dirty, hot mess
It happened to be a pretty hot day (reaching about 90) and I was dripping sweat. I finally relented and did the last 15 loads or so in my jeans and sports bra. Hey, boys take their shirts off all the time and I just couldn't take it anymore. Plus, it was at about 2 in the afternoon so not many of my neighbors were home. Thank god. Sorry for seeing my blindingly white belly neighbors.
I got a pretty nasty blister too
But the worst part? It didn't look like I even put a dent in that damn pile
When Chris got home from work he did some more wheelbarrow loads. I tried to pry myself outside to help. But that didn't really happen.
Over the next few days in pairs or by ourselves Chris and I filled in the rest of the pack (plus an additional 3 yard delivery we got for a total of 12 yards so far)
And my blister? Two others have made an appearance
But the good news is that the second layer of pack is done!
