Bark Anyone ?

After last weekend and a couple of days this week,
I have decided that I need HELP.
A few phone calls and emails later,
I have a couple of leads on
Yard Landscapers.

(I need trees pulled, weeds dug up,
bark put out, trim this tree,
put in that one, you get the idea)

One is showing up in an hour
and the other does lots of the yards
in my neighborhood.
I'm going to see him next week.
Both have names and accents that I can't understand
but if they know how to weed, bark and mow
and find my once upon a time bricks
that line my yard,
they can have the job.
(course I'll be hoping for the best price)

I tried to cut this and that.
Pull that weed and cut that vine.
I hurt in places I didn't even know existed.
I tried to hire my two teenagers.
They declined.
(can we all say spoiled rotten brats together in a very loud voice)

Hard work is only for me, I guess.
Thus, I'm going to pay someone
LOTS of money to make my view nicer.
Oh, I mean the Purr & Fur Gang's view.
I hope to get them to put in a nice rose garden for me.
Wouldn't that be fun ...

We think it's perfectly acceptable to admit you need help! As for those teenagers - think of how many cats could sleep in their beds!

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
