Being who I am, I was adamant about not having a gas powered lawn mower when we first moved into our new place 2 years ago. Tyler was okay with it, as long as I mowed the lawn 50% of the time. I kind of held up my end of the bargain... I would say I mowed it 35% of the time, and I cheered him on the rest!
Needless to say, Tyler won. We purchased a new mower today from the local Home Depot, and you should have seen the smile on his face as he happily mowed rows into our tall grass! I have to admit, it looks nicer and well cared for now, but I really liked the fact that we had a regular old push mower!
But... Tyler does do a lot of things that I have pushed over the years... like compost, and recycle, and showering less... to name a few!
We had a yardsale this weekend, and rid ourselves of a lot of excess baggage! The kids were very helpful, and offered up quite an array of their un-used toys! The house is a little cleaner, the garage has a little less, and we feel a little less clogged with junk! However, I still need to go through my closet... that is this week!
