Lawn Upkeep

I have known for quite some time now that our backyard desperately needs to be mowed. But when Daniel mows the lawn, our top priority is to make sure the front yard looks decent so the rest of the neighborhood don't come come chasing us with pitchforks. Today we woke up bright and early to work on the yard. Daniel and I picked up the rediculous amount of pinecones that ended up in our yard (some from the trees shedding them, and then some naked ones that our squirrel friends ate) and then he started mowing the front yard. now... here is a picture of the front of our house. not amazing, but the yard looks decent at the moment. (this is before we cleaned off the walkway- so ignore that)

Now, in our backyard we have two fences surrounding us. The first fence is around our whole backyard. It runs right behind our shed and playhouse. The second fence is a doggy fence. Let me go ahead and clarify that we bought this house about 4 months ago.... and the previous owners had a dog, and kids.... so the play house and doggy fence made perfect sense when they were living here. But thats beside the point. Anyway, it has been a while since we have mowed the back yard... and it has been an even longer while since we have mowed the little doggy fence part. Actually, we have never mowed inside that doggy fence. (quite frankly its because we are lazy and procrastinators, and we have no use for the thing) So Daniel decides to take on the task of mowing inside the doggy fence. After he finishes mowing the first strip of the forest, this is what it looks like.

Pitiful huh?

Moral of the story? Get a dog for your doggy fence.

I have a great group of kids in my class this year. I have this one particular great girl in my class named Camryn. She is just the cutest thing ever! She is short, always wearing cute cloths and either has her hair in pig tails, or in one poney tail on the top of her head looking like bam bam from the Flinstones. Oh my gosh she is adorable. I can be having the worst day in the world... not in the mood to talk to anyone and Camryn can walk by me and automatically get me in a good mood. I was having a very "bla" day today, and after Camryn woke up from her nap she ran up to me and with open arms said, "Here Mrs. Titus", and gave me the biggest hug ever. I love that. I absolutely love it. That right there is what makes me come to work everyday. (well, that and a paycheck)

i have to stop reading tammi's blogs

I get on the computer in hopes of posting a decent blog. I am bored, so i figure it wont be hard to just write decently and then click the "publish post" button. But like an idiot, I read Tammi's blog before I started writing. I mean honestly, I cant write after reading Tammi's ultra cool story about her child pooping on the wall! I guess I will have to wait until I have kids to write nifty-ly. (i think i just made that a word) anyway, I am off to the Howell household to eat dinner. my hubby is out of town... therefore Amy Lynn doesnt eat, because Amy Lynn doesnt cook, because Amy Lynn is lazy. Its a sad, sad world I live in.

Ta Ta for now
