A guy came to the door and asked if i would be interested in paying him to edge and mow my yard. (It quite obviously needed it) My initial gut response was "no way" as I have never hired anyone to mow my lawn in my life. I actually like to mow the lawn and normally have no trouble taking care of my own yard.
Now that I have three kids to watch full time, the yard is definitely going to the birds so to speak. Well, anyway, I was hot and tired and this guy was going to just do it all right then and it would be all done and look nice. So, after I got past my gut reaction and started looking around at how much edging needed to be done and how uneven the yard was, and looking at the baby in my arms who would not be thrilled to sit in a playpen while I mowed, I said yes.
Well, I feel lazy. I also think the yard looks great :)
