    Marlin got the new wheel on... and my riding mower is working now! I ran it around the yard a couple of times and both bags were full and the tube plugged. Our yard is really tall. Way too tall. It is all mowed now and both garbage cans are really full!

    I am really sore and hurting but I feel wonderful that it is done. Yippee!

    Glad you got it done, Bobbi. You will probably be sore today.

    I spent a rough night. But my yard looks so nice. It was totally worth it. The grass was 7" high in spots.

    It has been raining a bit almost every day, and the grass loved it. I can't believe how tall it got. Marlin said we had 15 bags of grass. Both garbage cans are full and there are 3 more bags sitting by them.

    Our yard grows fast and needs to be mowed a couple of times a week. I love doing it, so that is nice.

    You would really love this boy. He is 16 years old, clean cut, polite, and dresses nicely. He did a fantastic job on our nearly 3 acres of grass and saved me from having to do it! I wish he WAS closer to you so he could help you, too. I am sure he would!

    Just to let you know, I've tried students, but it didn't work very well. I have a handyman now for snow and mowing the lawn.

    I am going to mow again tomorrow. :agree:

    I hope my knee holds out. The silly thing is really painful again. It hurts worse when I am trying to lift it while sitting. :cry: It almost feels like something came loose in there. I am going to wrap it and put ice on it. Hopefully that will help. If feels very unstable.

    Thank you Candy. I hope and pray your knee gets better soon.

    I keep getting stuck in the strangest places. I do ok and then I can't get up on it. Marlin has had to come rescue me a few times. If he is not near, I have to crawl over to something I can use to get myself up. Silly knee. I have to make sure where I sit is above knee level. If it isn't, I can't get back up without a lift.

    To help keep things in perspective, I saw a gal with no leg... so I am thankful to have both of mine... even if they aren't perfect. Keep smiling and know that the Lord has a plan and he has everything worked out.

    Well, thank you. I do try to look at the bright side of things. If I don't, I can really sink into a hole of depression. I'll be 70 in October. I see lots of younger people who are in much worse shape than I am. So, I am very happy I am still pretty healthy.... all in all.

    With all the worms in our yard, it is pretty bumpy. But I got through it. Very still yesterday. But the back yard looks good.

    I forgot to take my medicine yesterday. That is not a good thing. When I got up this morning, I could barely move. I went to take my meds and discovered my mistake yesterday. What an idiot I am. But I am on track for today.
