I found some relief Tuesday afternoon, I went for an acupuncture treatment. I can’t believe what I put my 54 year old body through at times.
After all the rain Sunday night…. I was determined to improve the patio drainage situation. I hope I did OK, since I didn’t get to discuss this with Greg "the engineer"..... really, he is a civil engineer by degree.
Since the ground was soft mud, but heavy mud… I took the opportunity to dig a trench and fill it with river rock…. 500 lbs of river rock!
The nice guy, at the hardware store, loaded the 10 bags, 50 lbs each, into the Prius, but I had to move them to the garden area!
My whole body is stiff and sore… but I was surprised by my improved strength since I have been lifting some arm weights for a few months. I guess “use it or loose it” really applies.
Thanks for all of you who have offered help. I need to learn how to ask and accept help… but I was on an urgent mission to get this done Monday afternoon, and I missed several of your phone and email messages. I am glad I acted fast, since it did rain again Monday night …. 2.5 more inches… and as of midnight Tuesday... it is pouring down again... AND I'm up late Tuesday night, can't seem to sleep.
PS: I met with a sump pump guy and plan to proceed with this sometime down the road once I can discuss all the options with Greg. It may be several more months, since we will need to save up some money for this. We have been dipping into savings lately, a little too much for my comfort.
