WHAT a DAY!!
I ran errands this morning and then spent the rest of the day (noon to exactly 6:18pm) trying to regain control of the backyard! The grass is FULL of weeds (we rent and this yard obviously never got much attention prior to us living there) and it was all WAIST HIGH back there! Our weedwhacker was on the fritz so I borrowed my dads nifty new one that runs like a push mower! It was GREAT! I only have about 1/4 left to do (it's a pretty big stretch of yard!) but have to wait for dad to bring me some whip replacements-- I used up the first pair already. I cut the weeds down, then mowed high, then reset the mower lower and mowed AGAIN, then raked up rows of grass/weeds which I'll pick up tomorrow. My hands and arms were shaking (ain't THAT pathetic?!) as I was pulling off my shoes tonite. ugh. I'm sure I'll be hurtin' tomorrow. Oh well- it's all worth it! It's already looking SOOOO much better.
Tomorrow I'm going with Matthew's class on a field trip to Eugene, to a Science Center/Museum and a park. Should be alot of fun- especially being with my little man. I wanted to go to scope it out for our own field trips next year also.... so we'll see!
That's it for today...
Nothing amazing. Earth shattering. Exciting. ;)
