Friday, April 15 – Sunday, April 17

Friday was the calm before the storm. Or, more accurately, the calm before the Mulch Avalanche. My enjoyment of the day off was sadly tempered by the fact that the big mulch sale (5 for $10!) at the Major Home Improvement Retailer would still be in effect on Saturday and Sunday. I knew, one of those instinctive things you know with absolute certainty, that Saturday and Sunday would be very tough days. I was scheduled to work eight hours each day and knew that it would be mulch, mulch and more mulch.

My prediction was completely correct. On both days there was a near-constant flow of mulch buyers, and both days were utterly backbreaking. I have no idea of how many bags I lifted and hoisted over the weekend, but rest assured it was a high number.
