A Spring In My Step

Spring is by far my favorite time of year. Flowers blooming, trees blossoming (ACHOO!), birds tweeting. After such a long, cold, snowy winter, I am so ready to see those green blades poke up through the ground.

But Spring also means we're approaching our worst season of lawn care. I could blame our lawn mower's occasional breakdowns, but then I would just be lying. The honest truth? We suck at mowing our grass.

I'm ashamed to admit that in the three summers we have lived here, there have been multiple times where the grass has reached my knees.

And yes, I recognize that I'm short. As a random man in Lowe's pointed out, I'm "knee-high to a grasshopper."

But enough about my height. Back to what I was saying.

We suck at mowing. And weed-eating. And just about everything lawn care.

But I'm determined that this year we will do better. Are you reading this Scott?

It's all about the baby steps. Last year, we planted a tree and did not kill it. This year, we will mow our grass. At least on a semi-regular basis.
