I Think I've Done This Before

Husband normally prefers I leave the lawn work to him. Years ago he told me there's no reason for me to push a mower when there are five able-bodied males in the house.

He's been busy this week, though, so I decided to surprise him by mowing the lawn.

As it turns out, my diplomatic Husband may have had an ulterior motive in trying to keep me away from the mower. There's an unmowed triangle that I missed right in the middle of the lawn, and there's this especially lovely strip of turf where I managed to mow right down to the dirt.

It reminds me of when the Boys were preschoolers and I decided to save money by cutting their hair at home. At least the lawn won't insist on wearing a hat until it grows back out.
