Oh my gosh Bev I think you've just described my life. I make an annual trip to ER for something I've done to myself while fixing up the barn or just working on something when I'm in a hurry, rarely have a plan, know what I'm doing or have the proper tools to do it with. Why am I in a hurry? Because there's only one of me to do everything and I work full time (thank God! I lost my good job last year and all summer worked 2 and 3 jobs without benefits just to make ends meet). And I refuse to live without my kiddos. Today I'll go cut up a huge tree limb that fell on top of my horse fence without a chainsaw, just my muscle powered saws will have to do. I guarantee while I'm out there working I'll have at least 2 cats and all the horses 'helping' which makes it a project worth looking forward to :). So signing off I'll do, and a tree limb I'll woo (oh my word did I just say that?!
