Trying to find a time to get the lawn mowed

I've been trying for 15 days to get the dang lawn mowed and this is what happens EVERY single time I'm home and it's not night time already. This suddenly started the moment I took the mower out of the garage. Geeze!



Yesterday I was extremely exhausted after a night shift and some kids came to the door, obviously noticing the length of the lawn, and the offered to mow it for 10 bucks. I agreed. I still can't believe that I paid some kids to mow my lawn! How pathetic, but I was so tired and it desperately needed to be done. Since I don't yet own a trimmer, they got off the hook and only had to mow. Oh well -- it still looks much better than it used to.

Brandon would be so disappointed to know that you paid someone to do that for you! I won't tell him, but if he stumbles upon this, you are on your own!

I feel for you James, I had to mow the lawn many times in residency (pregnant with my fourth or with my fourth baby) & several in fellowship. But now if Paul is too busy I have children old enough to mow. Our neighbor boys in Akron, did not know girls could mow. I even ran over a wasp nest once & got several stings. The things we do to support our husbands in their residencies & chosen careers.

What a funny clip! Gosh, if it was raining that bad here we'd think there was going to be a flood!
