I’m tuckered out tonight. Mowed our lawn for the first time today. It should have been done the last few weeks. The typical 70 minute job took just over 3 hours. Then headed over to my moms to help work in her yard. When you need to use your parents house for a graduation party, you volunteer yourself for yard clean up.
My life hasn’t always been like this. I used to mow the front yard and want to curl up in a ball. I would have to beg the older boys to mow the back yard. It would not get done, I would get frustrated and it would take me three days to mow the back yard. Last summer, by the middle of summer; thanks to the capsules, I was down to about 70 minutes for the front and backyard (minus the dog section that I would make Adam do).
So today for me to be able to mow the lawn. For it to take longer because it was very long. Then for me to be able to go over to my parents afterward. There is no way this would have happened two summers ago!
It is such a blessing to be able to actually live again.
