Overwhelmed


I am feeling a bit overwhelmed. With the nice weather comes the opportunity to spend time outdoors. My home is looking very good on the inside but the exterior is an entirely different story.

The yard, I can not refer to it as lawn, is made up of a combination of dirt, grass and dandelion's. Merry and David love the dandelion's, they make me cringe. We have a terrific patio that is growing all types of vegetation between the bricks and the area outside the new addition resembles a construction site.

By the way, did I mention that I spend all weekend every weekend painting. There is no end in sight, squeezing in a moment to mow the dandelions is proving difficult. The grass and dandelions are growing at an unbelievable rate. The 15 inches of rain we received last week has provided the vegetation in the yard with a shot akin to steroids. They are growing out of control!

All I need are some appliances out front and the scene will be complete. I know that I need to take one step at a time and in the end it will be very nice. I just wish I had some money to throw at the problem. Have some one paint and landscape the place, that would be nice.

Two days a week is not enough time to accomplish all of the tasks that need to be accomplished. The forecast for this weekend is rain on Saturday, which leaves Sunday and Monday. Monday is a holiday and there is fun to be had, which leaves Sunday, which means I will be painting until August. By the time I get around to killing the dandelions and planting some grass it will December.

That is just how I am feeling, Overwhelmed.

I'll be thinking of you while I'm gutting the master bathroom this weekend.

Our yard is in dire need of attention too. Why is it that we all feel like slaves to our houses?
