The yard was looking pretty shaggy, and needed mowing. The problem is our schedules are pretty tight, and it was either mow it Wednesday night or Sunday afternoon. If we waited until Sunday, I think it might have been difficult to find the driveway through the overgrowth.
So, I got home at 6, made a little dinner, then went outside to get the mower and saw a giant, dark cloud looming in the west.
I’ve never mowed so fast in my life.
How fast? Well, including four stops to see what the heck was wrong with my iPod (it kept skipping the second half of songs) and a brief chat with a neighbor who invited us to his son’s graduation party – I mowed that baby in twenty-seven minutes! It usually takes me forty-five!
I put the mower away, plopped down in front of the computer, and it started to rain.
Whew. Glad I got it done. I hate when things get shaggy.
