Not on the list

I like writing to-do lists. And today the list was BIG.

Did everything get checked off?  No, doing that is a rarity. But we checked off a few things including buying veggies and dirt for this year’s garden, taking the Princess to and fro a classmate’s birthday party, planting the garden, start cleaning the garage, grill out and build a bonfire… and make s’mores.

Not on the list was removing three plus thorn bushes that were literally thorns in our sides on occasion but were always eye sores. (Thanks to my neighbor Jimmy for showing me how to use a Sawzall.

But after all that our lawn still looks pretty shabby, our house is pretty messy, and there’s pretty much a lot more to do. But special thanks to my parents who helped us definitely check more items than we could have.

And, of course, now I hear the chirping of one of our fire detectors. Put that on the list!
