You guys! There are neighborhood boys mowing my lawn right now!
Yaaaa!! This is so awesome! Ok, I paid them, but still! Cheap, local labor! And they're going to EDGE.
I've only owned a house for a year, why haven't I thought of this yet? Have you ALL been doing this and not telling me how great it is?!
I haven't asked Michael if it was okay if I paid these kids to do it. He's asleep but he asked me to wake him up after only 6 hours of sleep so that he could mow the lawn. So now he gets to sleep! And did I mention they're going to EDGE?? (We don't have a weed wacker, so the edges of the lawn have just been GROWING and GROWING).
When I paid this kid he said, "Sweet, now I can get that extra part for the lawnmower." I don't know why, but I find that adorable. I think it's because he's being responsible with it, whereas I would have run out and spent it all on pop rocks. Plus, he talks like droopy dog (remember him?). He also has a little brother following behind him around the lawn like woodstock trailing snoopy. I know, why all the cartoon dog references? Because it's all so awesome!
Has anyone else experienced the bliss of paying neighborhood kids to do chores that you don't want to do?
