The Grass is Always Greener...

The Grass is Always Greener...

It looks like a zebra in greens. My boyfriend fertilized it for me and he didn't follow the tire tracks of the spreader, in fact his exact words were ... "Don't worry, the fertilizer will spread out as it gets wet" And me being a bit older (and sometimes wiser...ok, maybe just older with more experience at least!) tried to explain how it works, but he was having nothing to do with it. After-all he used to work for a landscaping company right?!

SO... fast forward to this past weekend, my kids have all come to take me to dinner and see The DaVinci Code (My belated mothersday because I HAD to see this movie) and my youngest daughter is walking around the yard showing her boyfriend my gardens and she stops in the middle of the lawn. And I say to John "Watch, she's gonna ask whats wrong with the grass" and thankfully he has a good sense of humor and lets me pick on him, and sure enough Holland says "Mom, whats up with your grass?" So I said we're just going for the zebra look this year.

Anyway... Since I don't actually want to say "I told you so..." bought two more bags of fertilizer AND a bag of powdered lime dust so this time when he spreads it he can see where the heck he's been!

And the lime will kill off fleas, ticks and help with the fireants.

In other news:
NC had it's first power ball today. I bought three tickets. I lost three times. But I'm hooked. :D

My middle child has moved into her own apartment today with two other girls. I'm excited for her.

My youngest had her Junior/Senior prom last weekend and her and her boyfriend opted to rent a limo, get dressed up and go to dinner and then skip the dance and just go to the after parties. They plan to go next year though because they'll be seniors then. (I hope she doese cause I think she will always wish she had if she doesn't.)

Work is going well and I'm busy every minute I'm there except on most Fridays... almost as slow as Saturdays there unless some special event is planned. BUT... we got in 3 new computers and now are setting up a 5 pc computer lab so we can offer some classes, which I will be teaching. I'm looking forward to that. I also wish I could get 8 hours a day instead of 5... and health insurance would be nice. Oh and paid holidays and one week of vacation time with pay. Is that asking too much? My towns government thinks so.


Sorry I've been gone so long.
