Rocks. That’s what we asked for at Christmas, rocks and grass - and that is what we got. We really wanted to finish our backyard…we just haven’t had the money to do it. So our awesome parents helped us out.
Saturday was my husband’s first day off in over 35 days (I think it was day 38 or something like that). I really hate that he has to work two jobs. But I love him SO much for stepping up and taking on the extra job to help take care of his family. Anyway…so on his first day off in over a month, he got to move 8 ton of rock. Let me say that again…..he moved SIXTEEN THOUSAND pounds of rock from a pile in our driveway to the back yard, one wheelbarrow load at a time. So I guess he didn’t really get a day off after all. Oh and I should add that my brother-in-law is always here to help with projects like this! I feed him awesome food. So that makes it pretty much even.
We also have the grass to install. It’s fake grass. And I’m really really excited about it. I found all sorts of information that I think may interest you…another day. It’s going to save tons of water! Hopefully in a couple weeks we will have the mulch to go under the playground and then our back yard will be D-O-N-E !
Speaking of water….these were another Christmas gift.
Totally awesome! And I got rid of every single kid’s cup but these. Yep – they only have one mug with their name on it. I was beyond sick of cleaning up 18 cups each day from all over the house. And hearing “I can’t find my cup” or “I don’t know which one is mine.” No more. It’s awesome. One cup for each kid. It’s also saving a ton of water.
Apparently I’m all about water conservation today. Funny because in that last week we’ve received more rain than we sometimes do for the year. Or something like that. I’m not a meteorologist, people.
Talk again soon.
