I B'lieve I've made it through

Friday, almost noon. I think I've finally made it through the week that tried to chew me up and spit me out.

Let's see... in review...

1. Substantial car repair -- done.

2. Health insurance policy search -- done.

3. Income taxes -- done.

4. Stories written for work -- done.

5. Attended party for show house -- done.

6. Dozens more miles put on car -- done.

7. Photo shoots to go with stories -- done.

Now I can turn my attention to the chores of daily living, such as mowing my doggone grass. Yeah, there is extreme irony in writing a story about "curb appeal" when my own grass is knee high and I'm waiting for a notice from the city inspector to show up taped to my door. Maybe I can mow before my nosy next-door neighbor comes home from work and calls to complain.

What's left today:
1. Trip to post office to mail tax returns to IRS and check to my accountant, to whom I am so grateful.
2. Pay Dillard's bill.

1. Car tag
2. Driver's license
3. Next car repair, which is replacing the tie rods.

It's starting to look manageable again. I would also like to go work out today. It will help me reduce the stress that won't let go.

Here's a shameful photo just to show you that I wasn't kidding about the yard. NO curb appeal here, but I am rather proud of that tenacious weed that is close to two feet tall now. I think I'll name it "Herb."

Good for you, getting all that done!

Did you get the lawn mowed?

I was pulling little weeds on our side of the property line the other day. Our neighbor doesn't see fit to tend to his side since it's way on the other side of his two-car-wide driveway. Since I wanted our house to look as good as possible, I went around and pulled the three-foot weeds that had grown in his evergreen shrubs. Let me tell you, you let them get that big and they're big enough to fight you!

Get 'em, Trixie! :)

That No. 4 was especially appreciated in some circles. :-)
