Muscles I didn't know I had

So, dh and I just finished the yard work. My job was to trim all the bushes and water the plants. I have trimmed the bushes each year since we have lived here. However, apparently my muscles went on vacation since last year.

As I finished using the hedge trimmer I stopped for a drink from my water bottle. To my surprise I couldn't life it up! My muscles had disappeared! Now, I'm typing this with my hands rested on the keyboard (my keyboarding instructor would die!) and trying to drink a "Jack Daniels Citrus Splash" cocktail. It takes both my hands to life my bottle to my mouth.

In conclusion, if you want a humbling experience. Use hedge clippers for a couple hours!

In what part of the country do you live? I'm envious that it's cool enough to work outside at this time of year. It's awesome to have such a productive day!
