This week a man came to my door trying to get me to sign up for yard service. He started out by saying that he works on other yards in the neighborhood and he noticed that my yard has a few "problem spots." He didn't get any further than that.
We do have a gardener who takes of the yard. Me. Ever since I stopped "working" I have been taking care of the yard and lawn. My husband does help occasionally on the weekends, but regular mowing, weeding, planting trimming etc, is all up to me. And I'll have you know that I work very hard for those "problem spots"! If the yard was perfect how would I ever be able to convince Mr. Cookie that my yard skills aren't good enough and that we should hire a professional gardener when we can afford it. I'm still holding out hope that one day that will happen.
So for now, you just leave those "problem spots" up to me. Thankyouverymuch.
