too much snow

Been at it since 5AM. Every half hour go out and try to clear snow off the ramps and sidewalk. Can only walk with a cane, and easier to push 1/2" of snow one handed with the shovel rather than wait until it's 2-3 inches. Wife just left for grocery shopping, and tried to make me promise not to go out until she gets home. If I fall, I can't get up by myself, and with the rod in my leg a bit loose in the bone, she says it would probably break my leg to the point it couldn't be put back together again. I know I should listen to her, but I love her and how can I not try to make it easier for her to get groceries in the house? I keep telling her, that's what marriage is, taking care of each other.

You are exactly right, marriage is "taking care of each other" but having your leg shattered beyond repair is not taking care of your wife OR yourself. Find a couple of neighbor kids who will shovel your walk and driveway - I'm sure they will come around sometime today - throw them $10, and save yourself and your wife some serious pain. Good luck.

We live in the country, not too many people around, or kids. Wish there were, we could have them move and stack the wood for our wood burner we use for heating house.
