everyone thinks because i am getting older...49 ... and female that i should wait until others can help me do heavy things. but they have to actually appear. tired of folks saying they will help and then dont have time. i decided months ago to move the hay from the barn to an empty goat shed. maybe 30 bales. yesterday i started wheelbarrowing one at a time with the help of my trusty hay hook. on the way back i took leavings from the goat pen to the compost pile and lose hay to the same pile. it was very hot and humid. sweated like crazy. every 3-4 bales i took a break in the air conditioning to drink gatorade and water. took 6 hours and i was exhausted but it is done. i got great exercise doing it and the satisfaction of knowing im not an invalid yet just someone who needs to work smarter, not harder.
