Did You Know…

…there are muscles that run down the back of your thighs? Oh yes there are. And do you know how I know this? I weeded off and on all day yesterday. Now instead of gracefully sitting down on the couch I stand in front of it, bend over slightly at the waist, rock back on my heels and fall back, wincing at the searing pain in the back of my legs as I go. I’m such a wimp.

    I'm sorry I laughed when I read that!! Been there, done that, and day-um, it hurts!! Sorry. By Tuesday, you should be good as new. Till then, whine all you want.

    This wimp totally feels your pain. We've finally gotten the rock hauled off our property, and the garden has things coming up at last. So the pain was well worth it, lol.

    Those'd be your hamstrings. And glute-meds, and other sundry muscles. Yep. Feelin' ya.I've been hamstrung more than once, as I, too, have succumbed to the theory that weeding helps. right.Hope your Fourth was spectaculacular.
