Why yesterday's post was so late....or how I spent my day and please kill me!

Sometimes real life gets in the way. Yesterday was a good case of that. With an impending blizzard, DH and I decided a snowblade for the John Deere was just the thing and I hot footed it off to get the last one they had for my model tractor.
The girl working there says, and I quote "It takes some putting together.....but it's not overwhelming."
Okay. I'm a handy-chick and don't back down from a challenge. No problem! I've fixed, built, plumbed, mortared, plastered just about everything. Done concrete, done roofing......I've pretty much done it all so this wasn't anything I thought much about at the time of purchase.


Yes, six hours of physical HELL, I have the blade together, the mounts on, the deck off, the weights in place, my back out, my shoulder killing me, and hands not working. I literally can feel nothing other than PAIN.
And one more day away from the banners.
All I can say is it had BETTER snow!!!!!! ;)

P.S. It works.......went out in the dark and tried it on the driveway, and nothing fell off. But I do have a few left-over parts.......hmmmmmmmm..........

So this explains it. I was watching the TV weather last night and it said "Unexplained storm clouds over Northern Indiana" Be careful what you wish for.

Save the spare parts to make ART with;-)
