A Father's Day Friend or Foe

For Father's Day I decided I would be nice and do the yardwork. I figured really, how hard could it be, not like dusting in nooks and crannies or cleaning the toilet of a 6 year old boy right?

So I let the dad know that part of his gift would be a week of no yard duty- he was hesistant at first due to my last altercation with the headge trimmers which resulted in one of our front bushes looking like Mr. T. But I assured him that I would be good this time.

So he showed me how to work the weed eater, edger, and mower.. explained to me how to stay in a straight line.... how to ease into the blade while edging..... etc. I was pumped, I mean it sounded just like coloring and tracing.. stay in the lines.. careful around the corners...

And it was a gorgeous almost 100 degree day outside and I was ready to work on that non-existant tan I have, so I got my yard clothes on and headed out for a day of being "wife of the year"....

He forgot to tell me the weed eater is mean....


More like brutal, and abusive.. that thing HURTS! Never was I informed of the SHARP pieces of flying debris that would immediately come back at my legs....

Nor was I told it probably is not a good idea to just plow over grass which has pieces of wood chips in it.....

But, in the end, I got it done.... and have a nice sunburn tan to prove it. And the dad was rewarded with a yard already done for once... I hope he is happy....





Cause it won't ever happen again :)




Happy Father's Day (yes I know this post is late... sorry that is just how I roll) to the best hubby and daddy I know!
Stay tuned as I will soon be posting our "week in review" from last week as it was a pretty busy one :)
