Death by Patio

I discovered a new type of yard torture today, which is clearing out the grass and weeds which had been growing through the uni-stone patio I have in the back yard. It’s something that’s been needing to be done for a while, but got left off the chores list for too long and now it’s at the point of no return. It was either do it now or soon have to start mowing my patio, and I’m not ready for that just yet.

I should be able to finish the clearing portion tomorrow, after which I’m going to take a pressure washer to the thing and get as much dirt as I can out from between the stones before filling the whole thing up with the special sand polymer that goes in. I was hoping with an extra week off that I’d be able to do the driveway as well, but now that I see what’s involved that’s a pretty laughable goal. Not gonna happen.

But seriously, torture. I can barely flex my fingers right now, and I’m typing my keeping my fingers crooked and moving my whole forearm to each individual key, not the most practical writing method. Perhaps it’s time for bed, or I won’t be able to get anything done tomorrow.
