Home Ownership

Before Michael and I bought this house, I had such nice notions about having my own home... No one to share walls with, no one above or below or next to us, no shared walls... I can vacuum at 3am, I can blast the stereo, I can do whatever I want to do...

I didn't count on yard work.

Granted, we hired a kid to cut the grass all summer because it was so darned hot. But now I look at my window and all I see are leaves. And they have to be raked. And I have to rake them.

And I really, really don't want to.

I went out this morning, thinking ok, I'll rake some before I go out.

It's FREEZING outside and there's a frost!!!

I'm going to Home Depot and buying a leaf blower. I understand there's a certain model where it'll suck the leaves in and shoot them out as mulch. That'll save me bagging and all. I'm totally up for that.
