It's A Love/Hate Relationship
I discovered a new favorite chore of mine.
Yes, I have favorite chores. Organizing? Check. Cleaning the bathroom? Check. (Strange, I know, but the smell of Clorox and Windex just makes me smile.) Mowing the lawn? Check. And now...edging the yard!
Holy crap, my yard looks fantastic! I have been out there all day...mowing, edging, weed whacking, weed pulling, raking, sweeping, shoveling, organizing kids' toys. I had never played with the "edging" option on the weed whacker before. And now...I am in love. Who knew that edging a lawn could make such a difference? I keep opening the front door, just to look at the lawn and admire my handiwork. Silly...but people in love do stupid things.
While edging, I think I hit a rock. Must have been a pebble, really. Because when I looked over at our car...the entire back window was shattered. Well, half of it was shattered. The other half had already caved into the back seat of the car. Whoops.
