My lawn has grown out of control.
(disclaimer: this is NOT my house. but the lawn looks almost as bad)
I confessed this to you the other day. As well as my inability to repair my lawnmower at the moment.
So, the neighbor boy called. He'd like to mow my lawn, with his step-dad's lawnmower, for $20. I told him to go for it.
We went through this last year. I never once actually mowed the lawn myself. There was no reason that I didn't mow it. He just consistently beat me to it. And he probably needed the $20 more than I did.
THIS YEAR I WILL MOW MY OWN GRASS BECAUSE IT IS SOMETHING I AM PERFECTLY CAPABLE OF DOING, AND ACTUALLY SOMETHING I ENJOY DOING.
This one time is just because my lawnmower is broken.
Hold me to that.
