I suppose it’s true about the economy. On two consecutive days we had people wander up to our door asking if they could mow our lawn for some cash. Day #1 Man was well put together with a folder containing reference information. Day #2 Man was a bit scarier since he was pushing a running mower up the street. I declined help from each man even though I think it’s great they’re attempting to work for some money. I do get the hint, it’s time to mow our clover laden lawn. On that note, I hired our neighbor’s landscaper on the spot today to come by and look after our yard. I honestly love getting out in the yard and making it sparkle, but with the little one the luster has dulled a bit.
I thought it was interesting when I went home for lunch today. My purpose of going home was to meet our wonderful Terminix guy. When he pulled up to our house the newly hired landscapers (three of them) were in the yard making it pretty. While the Terminix guy was plugging a hole under our kitchen sink, he said this. “After 30 I decided to call in the troops as well“. Good, I feel validated in our many decisions to outsource.
