I finished cutting the grass and weedeating yesterday. Now Nancy owes me some money. When I found that the mower needed repairs, she starting complaining that it always needs repairs, and we just need to hire the grass-cutting out. We have a one acre yard. The cheapest quote we've had so far is $75...twice a month...for $150 a month! Nononononono.

I told her not only would I fix the mower, I'd cut the grass for $65! She agreed, thinking I wouldn't be able to repair the mower. I told her last night she owed me $65. Any bets on when or IF I'll ever collect?

I hope y'all have a great day!
Yea $150 a month to get the grass cut is a lot. I have allergy issues with grass so it is great to have a yard with very little. Our yard only gets a couple of hours of sun a day so it is hard to get grass to grow. We have kept most of the yard wooded and natural so we just weedeat. It takes a couple of hours each time. My problem is our son is a high school junior so I will be losing my helper when he goes off to college. Weedeating on the side of a mountain is hard on this old body...

My work shift is changing. I end 1 hour earlier and start one hour earlier. Its been forever since we have had a work shift bid. Frustrating times at work. Its hard to work for a company that you are shamed to work for. Its also hard to find a new job these days. I NEED to find one because this company hasn't given me a raise in 5 years. I went to ask for one and I was told I wouldn't see one probably ever again. How are you supposed to keep agents when you say that?! But they do not care. My BOSS cares but the mangers and CEO does not. Horrible way to get treated. Enough of that. I'm listening to Christmas music to cheer me up. Hey its working! Couldn't make it to Dads last weekend due to icy conditions. Well back to watching my show! Have a great day everyone and see you at the Pines!
Hope something else comes along soon!

Christmas decorations are the first thing I look for on Ebay, I am always looking for decorations that look like we had when I was a child. Every decoration we had has been missing/gone since the early 90's.

There is not much new today. The sun is shining, but temperatures are only to reach about 11c (51f). Perhaps we will see an above average temperature in our forecast shortly. Until then, I will continue to be glad that warmer months are on their way.

Have a great Wednesday, everyone! We're nearly over the hump and soon we will descend toward another great weekend!
Wow! Where has this month gone.

I know where you are coming from, I am unable to get a raise now, and they keep taking my people. I have one other person besides myself to to a job that use to take six people to do. I hope you can find a new job soon.

Good morning,

We are soon to be getting ready to head outside to clean up the yard for spring, the grass isn't growing yet here but we have to be ready. Then we may go and hike Peaked mountain this afternoon.
I hope you all have a great day.
