Holy crap, people! Why in the world did you let me fire the lawn boy? Didn't you hear me thinking to myself that I would just cut the grass myself this year and count it as exercise and thereby feel all self-righteous about it and also pocket the lawn boy money for a Beth Needs Pretty New Shoes fund? I know you must have heard that, so why oh why didn't just one of you smack me around until I came to my senses?
I cut the front and the side yards yesterday. With the reel mower. With Mia "helping" every step of the way. Then I decided today that it would be so much easier to just use the weed whacker to do the entire back yard, or hell, forget the mower, I'll just use the weed whacker to do everything. Have you guys ever used a weed whacker? I had not, and I still have no sensation below the elbows.
I don't think I'm cut out to be a lawn boy.
