I maybe attempting to do too much on my own, in trying not to over-tax my hubby. He still works around 70 hours a week, gets up at 3 in the morning, and is now *79* years old. And TODAY he's in having chemo.
I have to say he's an iron man, not kidding. But if he's a bit run down on the weekend, I hate to push him right now to get out there and unhook the battery so I can take it in, and I'm a *bit* nervous to attempt that myself.
Yesterday, because the trailer was a bit too close to the fence and made frequent access somewhat difficult, I filled the water tank (to lessen tongue weight) and re-orientated it using our boat trailer dolly. It came around sideways with just my weight
on the dolly. Then I used left-over roofing paper, unrolled it around the trailer so we were no longer walking through gravel back and forth to get in the thing.
He was somewhat astonished when he got home, and told me the dolly was only rated for about 40 lbs.
Anyway, he'll be sleepy today and part of tomorrow, but maybe we can do a little trip this weekend. But his work schedule and health issues have contributed to my effort to handle all issues and without giving him any additional loads.
