Hard Things
Life is full of things which are hard or tedious or otherwise unpleasant that need doing anyhow. They help make the world go 'round, they improve skills, and they boost your sense of self-respect. But doing them still kinda sucks. It's all the more difficult to do those things when nobody appreciates it. Happily, blogging allows us to share our accomplishments and pat each other on the back.

What are some of the hard things you've done recently? What are some hard things you haven't gotten to yet, but need to do?

Current Mood: busy busy

With a helper, I weeded out most of my gravel-lane flowerbed Sunday afternoon. I have never seen so much Virginia creeper vine! My Helper, the son of a former neighbor, was strong enough to rip those vines out of the ground. I ripped up all the Creeping Charlie weed I could get my hands on.
That flowerbed looks much better now. (Took most of the next two days to get over being sore though!)

Re: Yay!

I couldn't have done it without his help. Those vines and tree seedlings were too much for me to handle.
He's an awesome kid!
