Hurting Without the Workout


Yesterday my sisters and I moved some furniture. Well moved appliances!!!!!

My sister is cleaning out her house and the last things to get out were the washer and dryer and the refrigerator. I had no idea how much a fridge weighs and how wide washer and dryers are. We started with the dryer, which was not a good idea because it was the lightest of all the others. We got spoiled right off the bat. When it was time to move on to the washer, which was heavier. Finally, we got to the fridge!!!!!!!!! This thing weighs 198 lbs. It was hard to get out of the house, and hard to get in the truck, and hard to get back out of the truck, but it does not touch how hard it was to get up the steps and its new resting place. Yes, a little redneck but it is sitting on the front porch. We couldn't move it any further.

I wish I had a recording of the way we sounded trying to pull the dolly up the stairs. It sounded suspiciously like someone in labor, with lots of grunting and swears. Lots of swears. We would pull the fridge up a step and it would fall back down. Well when it fell back down it would hit our arms between the shoulder and the elbow. But with the angle we were having to work from there was no other way to do it.

So now this morning I have 2 big fat bruises on my arms, my shoulders hurt, and my neighbor has a fridge on her front porch.

Ha Ha...Thought you would enjoy.
