It all started when I got off work on Friday. I use to drive a nice big suv that I could carry a bunch of people or stuff in but it only got 25 MPG at best. It got an average of about 20MPG. So off I went to the local Honda dealer, where I bought the suv to see if they would be interested in trading it for a car that gets better gas mileage. I knew what my suv was worth, having researched it for the past few days. Well we found a car, a Honda Civic. they wanted to sell me the Civic for the price of gold and they wanted to steal my suv. I didn’t let them. I knew my suv was worth a lot more than the Civic. I did some simple math in my head (no one was harmed during the process) and came up with a number that I wanted. It took awhile but they finally gave in and we struck a deal. I gave them my suv and they gave me my Civic and a big fat check.
Friday night I was bad and ordered a large Stromboli from Marinos out at the end of Derry street. Yum!!
I awake at 0630 on Saturday and go out side to start in on spreading the topsoil that was dumped in my front yard. My neighbor Jody (the coolest neighbor anyone could have) was having his morning coffee and saw me out there and went and got a spade and came over to help me. Talk about short work, we had the pile spread in about an hour and a half. Later in the day he came over and spread weed killer all over my lawn to kill the violets that are trying to take over my yard. I have been watering the lawn ever since so as to get the weed killer down into the soil. I had a mess of errands to run on Saturday afternoon and I got them done. Late Saturday afternoon I get home and Jody comes over again and saks if I want to go down the Legion and have a drink. I haven’t done this in awhile. So I said, WTF, I’ll have one or two! I did. It was fun. When I got home I got the coals fired up and grilled up some dead pig muscle with Tony Chachere’s Creole seasoning and Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce. Oh, man do I have that recipe down. Yum!!
Today I slept in and just kinda’ putzed around the house. Dishes, laundry, vacuuming, watching the Indy cars crash into each other all afternoon, napping….you know the important stuff.
Next weekend I’ll spread the grass seed and straw and start watering the lawn twice a day for the next couple of weeks. so hopefully next year I’ll have a flat, regular, normal looking front yard.
So, that was my weekend. How was yours? What did you do?
