Nice, Summery Weather - What A Pain!
The weather this weekend was so gorgeous. It was sunny and warm and cloudless and I just had to face it: I had no excuse for not doing the yardwork.
Summer is practically here, and things are growing with a vengeance. Grass, hedges, weeds - they're all asserting themselves and I have to do my best for the next several months to keep them at bay, lest my house look like something out of a Stephen King movie and my neighbors disown me.
Speaking of neighbors, I had two different neighbors mow my lawn in the last week or so, and I am extremely grateful. Peter finally came by to pick up the good tractor, dropped off the one he bought me, and assured me that it runs fine and just needs gas before I start it up. I gave it gas and guess what? It doesn't go. It kept turning over and over and not catching, so I gave up and came back to try again a bit later and of course, I'd tried a bit too hard and now the battery was dead. So I headed into the shed to get the battery charger I keep in there and wouldn't you know it - Peter took that, too. (To be fair, I did tell him he could have anything else I hadn't bought for myself). I didn't know he planned on taking it or I would have replaced it.
And now I can't replace it until payday (which is almost two weeks away) because our new kitten suddenly developed ringworm and the vet bill set me back well over a hundred dollars. You know what they say - when it rains, it pours. And when it pours, things grow. Like my grass, and my complete irritation at having to deal with it. Why can't I be one of those people who finds yard work relaxing? I think I'd rather be having root canal sometimes!
Have you ever felt like you're just plain irritated by everything your ex left you to deal with by yourself? I'm trying not to get angry - after all, by now I should be coping with this stuff on my own, anyway. Some days, though, it all piles up and feels really unfair. I need to win the lottery so I can hire a bunch of shirtless hunks to mow my lawn!
