What a dirty job…

We’re celebrating ‘spring break’ here on Megan’s Island so we took a quick jaunt down to Portland to hang out with family and enjoy the sites.

While we were gone, we had 12 cubic yards of topsoil delivered. Do you know how much dirt that is? This much.

We woke up early yesterday to tackle our new mountain of dirt and after 133 wheelbarrow loads and 13,000 steps back and forth (I love my pedometer), we filled in and landscaped the backyard, the front yard and our veggie/herb garden by the driveway. We started at 9 a.m. and finished at 5 p.m. with an hour lunch break.

We couldn’t be happier with the results and once I can bend my legs and move my arms, I’ll put all of those plants in the ground! Check back for final before and after photos soon!

Almost-finished product!

UPDATE: I’m still sore and Brandon figured out why: We lifted/moved 22,275 lbs of dirt on Thursday. Oy.
