We moved into our new house on January 1.
We got grass on August 6.
I cut the grass for the first time on September 2... and loved it!
After living in a condo for 4 1/2 years, I was looking forward to shovelling snow and mowing the lawn. I find manual work to be refreshing. Maybe because my job on a day-to-day basis involves a lot of sitting, and can be excruciatingly painful for someone who has a lot of energy. So I enjoy doing physical work, because to me it's not work, it's a release of the pent up energy that would otherwise drive me crazy.
So if you're looking for someone to cut your grass once the kids leave for college... Give me a call!
(We don't have a lawnmower yet, so I have Jeff Brodie to thank for lending me his mean machine.)
