Jungle Fever

Chris promised me last night I was going to get up the same time as him today and WORK. So this morning I was rudely awakened with the covers being ripped off me and a squirt gun to the face, which he totally used! (at 5 am). . . which didn't end until I was out of bed, and out of our bedroom.

This is the project he gave me to do today:

(This is just a portion of our backyard. . . It all looks like this. . .)

Fun huh?! One of the reasons I married Chris is that he is the ONLY guy who will put me in my place and won't let me be (to much of) a princess. Occasionally I have to remind myself that this is what I believed to be an "endearing" quality of his. So, assuming I don't die of severe heat exhaustion and painful prickles in my hands, I will post an after picture.

I am still not done. . . but here is an update.

That is funny, I can see Andy doing the same thing to me! Our backyard looked close to the same thing, but Andy did go at last Saturday, looking much better now! I weeded the front yard, then I was done. I am a wimp when it comes to the heat!

K, first of all....did Chris help you with this job? I don't believe it if he did....his 'soft' computer hands don't do yard work as far as we knew!!!

Johnnah, I know those tumble weeds well. I'm trying to conquer my backyard too. In desperation I tried lighting a bunch with lighter fluid and matches, but it just wouldn't take. So I'm back to the "pokeies" too. I wish I could've seen you at the reunion. Take Care, Ashley
