Mowing vrs Swiffing

Linda feels so guilty about not mowing the lawn today.  Her neighbor does such an amazing job on his lawn and yard that it makes Linda's yard look extra-terrible.  Look at how green and lush our front yard was a few years ago! 

Now it is weedy and has brown patches of dirt showing.  (Totally her fault since she doesn't do the upkeep like seeding, watering and feeding.)

Yesterday afternoon she was going to mow, but then she was invited to a friends house. Today she was going to mow but she had a work meeting and didn't get home until 3:00.  Since she was leaving for evening church at 6:10 (in just a few minutes) she didn't mow.  Tomorrow, she had 5 classes to teach and it will be 8:00 p.m. when she gets home.  Tuesday... out; Wednesday... nope... but Thursday for sure!  By then the grass in the backyard will be over my little head.

At least she made our chicken for the week and cleaned the whole house.  All the laundry is done and she is prepared for her new Les Mills routines that launch tomorrow.   The bottom line:  You make time to do what you want to do. She Swiffers our hardwood floor 5x a week and cleans the bathroom everyday.  She would so rather do inside chores than outside chores!
