AT LEAST I AM DOING SOMETHING....
Wow! He really did. He helped me put a cover over Kaylee's pool, he trimmed the dead branches off of the pecan trees that were likely to crash on the patio, and he designed and helped me build a "rock"bed for my butterflies and it cleaned up the front yard nicely. The bed was way overgrown and looked ratty but now it looks fresh and clean. Now, he wants to do the same thing to a couple more beds. I think he is finally realizing my limitations as far as pulling weeds goes and hopefully I won't have to pull anymore from the beds we fill with rock! YIPEE!! Either way, I am not feeling so bad about not being able to help him as much over there when I look at what I've accomplished here on my own. It doesn't stop the grumbling but it makes me feel better just to know that I've done something productive. I have even started MOWING! Shocker of all shockers. At the other house, he had a particular way he mowed and it was his thinking time! So for all the 17+ years we were there, I probably only mowed 5 or 6 times and usually only the front yard where people saw it! haha Now we have almost 3 acres and I am riding a riding lawn mower and I have a blast doing it! At least it gets me out into the yard and doing something I can be proud of and be productive at the same time. It may not look as "pretty" as when he does it but at least I am trying! Yeah! Well, I will post some pictures today of the yard here and how it is turning out.
Blessings and hugs,
