Snow & how weak I must be!

Options

I stayed home from work today because I didn't want to be out on the roads in our snow (blizzard) conditions.  Sooo, being bored and the snow/wind last let up, I decided to showel snow.  I have always done this so even though the snow is really wet I thought, no problem.  eah, right.  I'm pooped after just about 5 minutes, poured me a glass of red wine (really, I've read the red wine fights cancer) and now am resting.  Although I can call the guy that farms my land, I'm stubbord and have never asked for help.  I guess, I'll just enjoy my power, because there are some in my area without it, and do it in 5 minute  bursts of energy.  Hugs Nancy

    Be careful

    You are probably anemic at this point so your body can't perform as you wish it would.  Take it easy and conserve your strength.

    LOL, same thing happened to

    LOL, same thing happened to me!  We got about four or five inches of heavy, wet snow and my husband and son are out plowing for our company....so,  I thought, I'll just shovel a path for the dogs.  I shovels one little path and had to come in and rest....I was pooped!  It's hard for me to even hold on to a snow shovel since I don't have a lot of feeling in my fingers. 

    We have satellite tv and the dish is covered with snow so I'm watching tv on a 7" screen with a little antenna but at least I also till have power and I have my computer with internet.

    We WILL get our strength back, Nancy!!!

    Love,
