Bumps in the Road

My laptop broke so I have been stuck in a room that if full of junk to use the computer. It is not a happy place and I am trying really hard to get caught up from last week.

Spring has been off to a good start here. We actually have green things poking up from the dirt in our yard. I thought for sure that we had killed most of the living items last year. Even the hydrangea bush that was full of fungus last year seems to be coming back to life.

Hopefully, we will have some time in the near future to mow the lawn for the first time before it grows any longer. I hate being that house on the block with 6 inch grass. Hate it, Hate it, Hate it... take that as a hint DH.

I can't stinking believe that April is almost over.. this year as flown by in a haze. We still have to make our travel plans for Memorial day weekend. Bah!

Have a happy Sunday!

I came over from Lost and Found. It's nice to find a new blog to read!

I, too, HATE being that house with the 6 inch grass. Luckily, since we moved here a year and a half ago, our neighbor has been mowing the lawn for us. He says it's his form of meditation. That, and the house we are in belonged to his mother-in-law, and thus, he had been mowing it already for the last 14 years. Oh, and he has a riding mower, but we only have a push mower, and we live on 1.5 acres, so he likes to help us out.

Of course he would have to be the one to look at our horrible yard, had he not come to mow it for us...

Unfortunately, he moved about 2 months ago, so I figured we were on our own to take care of the lawn. But, our other neighbors (who are his aunt- and uncle-in-law) are elderly, and so he brings his mower over to do their lawn every couple of weeks, and so has been helping us out by mowing a bit of our yard too. I don't know how long it will last, but for now, I don't think I can look this gift-horse in the mouth!
