I have GOT to buy a lawnmower this week.

I went out to the house yesterday to put some things away and find that pesky bughole. Found it! (I hope). I filled that in with sprayfoam. I will shape it today.

While I was getting some things out of the car, I noted that I had two days till it was time to cut the grass. Maximum. And wouldn't you know it, right then, Justin rides up on his bike and asks if he can cut my grass. He's saving for a video game for his Gameboy. I paid the lad 40 bucks. 40 bucks. That's about half of a new (cheap) lawnmower. Now, I'm all about teaching kids the value of a dollar. Just not necessarily my dollar.

Okay. The sun is not up yet, but I'm heading out. Gotta go meet the AC guy to let him in the house. We shall have cold blowing AC!

you've got to tell us/pictures of that bathroom sinpit.

Hmmm... what about a roller cutter from target?
You'll get things cut down soon. :)

It's pretty freakin' huge. I was going to give him 30, but I didn't have change available.

I figure he ended up earning that extra 10, anyhow. He picked up sticks and braved the stinging caterpillars to get around back.
