Yesterday, Aaron and I used our 10% off coupon for Home Depot to purchase:
- a 6-foot ladder
- hedge clippers
- grass clippers
- two rakes
- a shovel
- lawn soil
- ryegrass seed
- a Clorox wet-jet mop
Then we bought two 10-packs of leaf bags at Kroger, and spent an hour and a half raking and bagging leaves. And those were only the ones next to our driveway, on the fence. We now have 12, count ’em, 12 bags of leaves sitting by the curb, waiting for trash day on Tuesday. And we still have quite a bit of other work to accomplish this week… but at least the front yard looks a little more presentable. Aaron has this week off, so he’s planning to do some of it while I’m at work.
I have a hornline rehearsal up in Holly, Michigan today, and I’m supposed to be carpooling up with a friend from Hazel Park (Detroit), but he hasn’t gotten back to me about when to be at his house, or if we’re still even doing it at all. I gotta go call him now, because I’ll need to leave in about a half hour to be there in time, either way we do it.
I don’t wanna drive two hours up and two hours back myself. Ugh.
