Where the Green Grass Grows and Grows....
It is Friday, and I have been a bit lazy today. I'm not sure why because I have plenty of homework and housework to keep me busy. I think I am just tired of the monotony of it all. I did go have lunch with Dalton today, so that kind of broke up the day, but I needed something else. I could have gone for a walk on the hampster wheel, but I was not in the mood. It has been raining on and off for the last 3 days and I am tired of it. It has also been a bit on the chilly side, about 65 for the high with lots of clouds. Anyway, my sister called and I went to chat outside on the front step. Low and behold, the sun appeared. Neighbors came out and started trimming and mowing. I began to think about all the activities we have lined up starting in about 5 minutes (eighth grade formal for Makenah, a Movie night for Madisen, a birthday party for Dalton and that's just this evening). Scott has to work this weekend and next and Makenah has a huge band thing tomorrow. I also get to teach Dalton's class at church for the next couple of weeks. Anyway, busy is all I have to say. I decided to do something different. I decided I needed to sweat in all the places a girl should never sweat. I decided after all this rain, and to lighten Scott's load, to mow the lawn, lots and lots of lawn. I started with the front. It's a pain in the butt to go around the trees. I don't hedge. I don't do inclines. I don't do under trampolines (I realized this after I started) I'll leave this for Scott... and this. One of these days we will get to planting these flowers too. They have been sitting here now for 3 weeks (maybe 4, but who's counting). I want you to know we don't use a self-propelled mower either. It's a lot of work and I would have kept going, except that the gas ran out. DARN!! Have a great weekend everyone :)
