It all started out quite well. I managed to sneak outside while she was on the phone so she wouldn't know what I was up to and was about 1/4 of the way done with the main part before I heard, "Laurie Anne North, I mean Laurie Anne Higgins, get in here before you catch cold!". Okay, Grammy, just a little bit. So, close to 1 1/2 hours later I had shoveled the part where the cars park, twice... yeah, that's right, close to an inch came down before I finished and I didn't want my hard work wasted, so I had to do it again.
Here's a look at my handiwork:
|No, it isn't very pretty, I tried to get it all though, I really did.|
Here is what I still have left to do:
|No, not the entire thing, really just up to that large fence post... but still....|
Here is the main parking area again, less than 2 minutes after I took the above pictures. Ugh!
|Why, yes, that is my awesome mommobile just chillin' there.|
Here is my hand.
Apparently gloves aren't just for keeping your hands warm. Live and learn I guess.
So, anyway, I surrender. I'm usually not much of a quitter, as in I never quit, but for now at least the driveway and the snow win this round. I do feel I accomplished a fair amount of my cross training though, so at least I got one win in. And, even if my grandma is mad at me for staying out after she had called me in several times I'm sure it was still kind of a nice thing to do for her, so there is a partial win there too. :)
Now it's off to decorate some sugar cookies. Life sure is good when you have a Grammy to entertain you and your kids.
