Olive, ready to attack.
Quick observations from this week and last week:
1. If you will venture that far into the home ware with your wife, you will notice that there is a section of coffee, notably from Hawaii and other exotic locales in most TJ Max stores. On a whim, Miranda and I purchased some of their Hawaiian coffee for nothing else other than it smelled good. Well, what do you know, it’s it makes a darn good cup of joe. So I got twice the coffee, except that it’s a specialty blend, which is a plus, for $6. Point: Seth.
2. I still hate shopping, unless it is for Texas Tech gear or electronics, most notably cameras.
3. It typically takes me at least a week to do laundry. I simply hate the process and it beats me down. It shouldn’t because it’s so simple, but it does. I used to not be this way, at one time in my life I could get all of my laundry done in an afternoon. In fact, when I was in college, I would get up very early, and go do laundry. The biggest reason why I did this was so that I wouldn’t have to talk to anyone, but I also didn’t want to waste any time doing laundry. Now, I could care less if I’m wasting time, which is incredibly inconsiderate to my wife. I’ll get better.
4. I may not be the best lawnmower, but I may be the fastest. I knew it was supposed to storm here on Friday night and so Thursday after work I decided I would mow the entire yard. Now, I knew that I would be facing a very hungry Miranda, simply because I had promised her Mexican food for dinner, but I thought I could do it in an hour and be eating my 6:30. We have a yard that makes up .70 of an acre and when I purchased a lawnmower, I wanted the cheapest one, which means that I have a non-self-propelled lawnmower. Needless to say, I get quite a workout when I mow, but that’s not the point here. Miranda saw me begin the task at 5:20. I took one break to grab a drink of water, and the lawnmower ran out of gas near the end. The lawn was mowed by 6:21, which means that had I not run out of gas, I would have mowed that son-of-a-gun in less than an hour, with a break. I am patting myself on the back on this one, it’s not an easy task, but I’ve never met a lawn I couldn’t tame.
