Spring is good, but NOT the mud!!

Spring is not on my list of favorite seasons, however I do enjoy the sounds, smells, and temps. I am not fond of the MUD, hate it, hate it, hate it!

Our driveway is not paved so imagine my pain when the snow starts to melt! NOT fun!! All week we had a solid sheet of ice on the driveway, yeah - wasn't fun walking the kids to and from the bus every day. Yesterday we had a bit of a warm up and it all melted!! YUK!!

A few weeks ago we got the kids 4 wheelers, right now they cant ride in the snow so they are riding in the driveway. Jason snowblowed a good sized track in the FRONT yard last weekend for them to ride, and the snow quickly melted with the heat from the tires and in turn left a mud pit, IN my front yard eh!!

Last night while Jason cut wood, they rode! OH MY!!!

They came in COVERED in mud, I was in such shock that I didn't think to grab my camera, I was just concerned with getting their clothes off and getting them into the tub. Me and mud are hookin horns lately:)

SO, any and all removing mud stain tips n tricks are appreciated:)

Another thing I don't like about quick "spring" warm ups is this nightmare....
Sump pump is working overtime these past few days!!

On a happier note, I'm back to creating, slowly, very slowly but at least I am!
AND - Summer will be here, I just know it:)

Most of the snow is gone at our place and we too have an abundance of mud. I hate hearing it slurp under the car as I make my way up and down the driveway. My garage is a mudball mess for sure. Atleast we know spring is on its way!
Have a wonderful weekend,

That is what our yard is going to look like today. We got some melt yesterday, and the rest will turn to water today.

Morning Jenn, My yard is a mud pit too. I like spring but can do without the spongy yard. I am just lucky the boys are grown and out of the house.

Glad to hear your creating. Can't wait to see what your doing. :)

Take Care,
Debbie K

We have a 25' X 30' fenced enclosure for our 9 miniature dachshunds. The first thing we see when the snow melts is a zillion piles of poop. But when the weather gets this nice, they want to be out there, running the perimeter and basically, every inch of the area. So not only is it mud but it is mud mixed with poop. We have just one room for them to live in in the house and we spend 75% of our time there, as well. Still I have to shampoo this room often. They are a pain in the a** but we love them and put up with their antics. I can definitely empathize with your feelings about mud! I am patiently waiting for this too to pass.
