OH my Aching Back

I have been wanting to re-do my landscaping for quite some time, and this weekend, we got a good jump on it. Maddie and I went to Glasgow and got some new landscaping blocks. Chris and I worked hard and got them laid in the front of the house. It was not as bad as the back will be.  And this is a huge plus, we worked together without one crossword!!!!!! That is HUGE for us!!!!!  Usually when projects are involved and expecially if they are my projects, I get several looks, and sometimes a few choice words are said!!

I have started on the back of the house. I scooped old pea gravel and dug up some bushes that I no longer wanted. Pulled weeds, dug up some annoying vines. Now Chris has to scoop some more gravel with the tractor. Hopefully I will have it finished by this weekend.  I made before pictures and I will post them when we finish. 

Carter will be out of school on Thursday and Friday for Spring Break, so I am taking off work as well to be  home with the kids. I am hoping to gets lots done while off and gets lots of playing in!!! The weather is suppose to be good, so that makes me that much more excited!!!

Hope everyone had a good weekend!!

Until next time,
