I need a house husband

So today I decided I had to get the yard mowed.  This guy I’ve talked to online for a few years has offered to mow it for me but he keeps putting me off.  I figured the city is on the verge of telling me to mow it or else.  Some weeds were getting pretty tall.  So in a proud moment, I got the mower started and got going.  It was touch and go for a while, but I got the big side yard mowed and in the middle of the other front yard, the mower died on me.  The bottom needed to be cleaned out which I did but the cord still won’t pull.  So I stopped and put it up for the night.  I’ll try it again tomorrow.

As much as I’m proud of myself for mowing… it is exhausting.  I tried to convince Marty to marry me and become a house husband.  He just laughed.  Oh well. 

Now I feel totally exhausted and could just go to bed any time.  I just think 7:30 p.m. is a little early for bed.  I realized that I have to get my website and a grant project finished THIS weekend.  I’m leaving for Austin on Wednesday after school now and will be gone until late Saturday.  There is simply not enough time to get everything done.  And yes, I should be working on the website but I don’t think I could get anything done. 

I might be going out with some friends tomorrow night.  I need to confirm, but it will be nice to have a girls night.

I vote for a girl's night out! You deserve it. And I hate mowing my lawn. Dad loves to do his even though he has a yard service to cut it. They will cut it and he will cut it again a week later. I have never understood that. LOL

What's wrong with a house husband? Running an entire household is a nice task.
