I'm tired

I must send out a sincere Thank You to neighbors and friends for showing up in the nick of time... from picking up the grass on Saturday morning to getting it down this evening. Our grass was done in about an hour... Simply Amazing.

Today was spent weed eating, mowing, tilling and grading. We worked like crazy to get the grass down before the dry conditions killed my dreams of a lush backyard. All of this occured while Wil suffered from fevers to chills and an inability to stay alert. He is really sick. I feel terrible, but he says it's fine because if I hadn't done it abruptly it wouldn't have been completed for weeks. (I'll post pics Tuesday morning. I'm as giddy as a school girl crushing. )

Living Realistically Lesson For Today: If I wait for the perfect moment to accomplish any goal, I will never achieve anything.
Song I sang while toiling away in the dust, "Have I done any Good in the world today? Have I helped anyone in need?" I will repay the kindnesses we received during my impulsive decision to have grass...

I hope that Wil is feeling better and that Kate isn't worse today!

I am SOOOO excited for your grass. It's amazing! I hope you opened your blinds last night and just smiled. It's beautiful. All your hard work paid off.

Your Welcome! Oh no, Kate's sick too! I hope you don't catch it. I think you need to take a lil vaca til everybody gets a clean bill of health, then you can come back and be their mom.
