You see, I hate weeding. HATE. We had flower beds growing up that I swear my mom planted weeds in just so my brothers and I would have something to occupy our time in the summer instead of arguing. There were 3 beds and 3 kids. Convenient huh? I also spent 2 summers working maintenance for our parks and rec department after I graduated high school. And there was always 1 or 2 weeks out of the summer that were spent entirely weeding. That's right eight wonderful hours a day, five days a week, weeding. I did a lot of super fun jobs while working maintenance. <insert sarcasm here> but I worked with one of my best friends, got off work at 3:30, and got a pretty nice
We have lived in our house for 1 year 8 months so I guess it's time I get the jungle that is my flower bed under control. I will take before and after pictures, but I might be too embarrassed to share them! The problem is the MINUTE we've been here for the mandatory 3 years I want to get the heck out of dodge and move back to the country. So I'm stuck in a catch 22. I don't want to put work/$money$ into it because I just want to move, but we need to fix some things and have curb appeal in order to sell the house. Darn economy. So, first thing on the list is to round-up the crap out of those weeds! Were starting from fresh, and I have plenty of flowers growing wild in the back yard to fill the empty beds in a few months when it's safe to plant. Needless to say, I will be having my mother over to
I guess it's time to be a grown up and take care of our yard. We wouldn't want to be those neighbors, now would we?!
So I guess what I'm trying to say is....Who wants to come over and do it all for me? I hear weeding is really theraputic. Any takers??
Embarrassing pics to come....
