Today was another hot day, but I managed to get outside and do some work on trimming the bushes in front of the porch. We have this huge holly bush that is over 10 feet by the garage, so I think I am going to have to call in a service. I am only a little over five feet, so it is out of my reach. After I bitched enough, D came out to help me, and he had the bright idea to put a ladder on the back of the truck to attempt to trim the tree...right?? I asked him if his life insurance was paid up, and then sat in the garage in front of the fan with a diet Mountain Dew to watch him, knowing that he was only going to trim the bottom, damage the tree, and leave a huge mess. It was refreshing to watch him make an idiot out of himself, and then after he made a huge mess, and never reached the top of the tree, he finally gave up. It was all I could do not to say.."I told you we needed a service"..why is it that men never listen and always do the opposite of what we say, only to end up doing exactly what we had suggested earlier. This is so annoying!! Oh well, I guess the next time, I will keep my mouth shut, and let him make the suggestion.
Other than that, T has been helping around the house this week. She is having a birthday party next week, and I finally convinced her to do a small party at Justice. She is going to have 5 girls and do a "Rock" party, and then the kids will come back here for cake and ice cream. I was shocked that she went for it. I can hardly believe that she will be 12!! Time sure flies, and as the summer continues, I am beginning to see how much she has grown up. She has finally gotten over Hannah Montana and has moved on to the Jonas brothers. It is funny to see all the posters of boys on her closet doors. I have a feeling that it won't be funny for long..ha!! I guess in a few years, I will have to contact a few of my friends to gather up some beacons(tracking devices)for her date's car. Thank God I've had training..I will probably need it!! Until later!! Have a good one!!
