another first

so I mowed the lawn today.

that's a big deal.

I never mow the lawn.

I'm afraid of the lawnmower!

or more specifically, the blades.

But the grass was getting to be taller than emma
and I didn't want to lose her.

so I mowed it.

I did it.

but I'd still prefer it if you could.

Lawn mowers freak me out too!

Why Do We Even Have That Lever? said...

Well, now you know, you don't have to be afraid of the lawn mower. And you have two angels watching over you to make sure you stay safe.

(oh, and always wear full running shoes and jeans to mow the lawn. You don't have to, but if those blades spit something out, runners and jeans will help protect you.)

PS: I put a dent in my dad's car once by having my mower fling a rock out the side and hit his car... eep.

PPS: Good for you for doing it!!

PPPS: i wish Bryan was still here to mow the lawn for you too. HUGS.

I am proud of you for taking that step! I can't imagine how hard it would be to take on roles that you never had before becuase you HAVE to, not because you WANT to. I have just caught up on your last several posts and just want to send you some big ((hugs)).

I strangely like mowing the lawn. It's a good workout.

Good for you!

I've been cutting lawns since I was about 13 and they still freak me out a little. I suck it up and do it though...otherwise it would never get done.
