Latest and Greatest - or whatever

Ok...so today was NOT the best day ever. In fact....it sucked. BIG TIME.

Let's just put it this way.  2 wks ago we had to take the OLD riding lawn mower (zero turn monster) to the shop. This happens EVERY fall....and about 3 times a year as I see it.  Darn thing is old mind ya!

Ok...so we think we're supposed to get it back last wednesday...NOPE.  So..in that process...we lose 2 accounts.  Fall Clean ups.  This amounts to about $700.  Yes...that is  A LOT of $$$$ for us. A LOT.
Darn thing costs us $500 to fix.  So...you do the math. That is $1200 we've lost.  For us...that is horrific.

So, I'm trying SO hard to be thankful. To think of all the things I have...health, life, children, home, heat, electric, food. etc. So many don't have these things.  I have to BE THANKFUL.

Ok, so there it is.  One day more in the life of the LAWN CARE providers.  OH the drama.  It's so based on $$. TIME....and equipment working!

So, today I will be thankful if it kills me.  I will be grateful I have a healthy family, cars that work, heat in my house, and FOOD on my table.

There.  The end.


  1. Seriously - I HATE spending money on things like lawnmowers! Ugh. Good for you trying to stay grateful through it.

  2. I'm so sorry, that is an awful hit to your family budget, right before December too. Glad you are still thankful for the things that others don't have. Hang in there!
