Gluteus Painimus

I HATE Mondays.

There was an error on the call schedule, and at 4 pm this afternoon I found out that instead of going home at 5 pm as planned, I had to stay until 9 pm. Yuck.

When I finally got home, I found that the two cords of seasoned firewood I ordered two weeks ago had arrived. It was blocking my driveway and the rain had been drizzling on it all day. I managed to carry in about 1/3 of it and stack it in the basement. It took me about 20 trips. It is 7 steps down to the basement, and the loads I was carrying were probably between 30 and 40 lbs. The rest of it I'll probably clear some space for in the garage and try to move tomorrow after work. My muscles are going to ache this week!

I hope that it was your wood
and not someone else's
Otherwise you might get shot.

Get the wood in before the Polish guy comes by and takes it.

You GO, girl! That's a lot of wood! If I remember correctly, two cords would be a stack 8 feet wide, 8 feet high, and 4 feet deep. (Unless it's face cords, then it'll be about half that.)

I keep my wood outside. I'm afraid of bugs in the wood. Especially bugs that like to eat wood.
