Yeah, it's starting again this year...
I look out, and I see all of the things that I want and need to do out in the yard and around the house..
Yet, for all of my observations, I just can't seem to get motivated to really "do" something about it all.
Do any of you have this problem?
Take this for example:
This weekend, I had a friend of mine come over, and we trimmed down the monstrous hedges that grow in front of my house. The fence that is between my house and these green monsters is 5 feet tall, and some of the sections that we cut off these hedges were six to eight feet taller than that!
Anyway, after trimming these down, we piled them on my "to do" pile of dump junk, and planned on making a full day of dump runs for this coming weekend.
My dump pile has gotten a bit out of control.
I mean, it's still got stuff from the house remodel (including the sliding glass door we removed), old yard clippings, closet door junk I'm never going to use, the wannabe carport that fell and crushed my poor work car this winter, and other sundry items that really don't have any place at my house...
All in all, I'm looking at about 6 trips to get it all cleared out of my yard.
My friend also has things he needs to get rid of, so on my day off yesterday, we went over and gathered everything he needs to get rid of, so that we'd be ready for this weekend.
As it's looking like right now, we'll have one full load for his stuff, about another half load from his dad's stuff that needed to get taken out of his shop, and then the 6 or 7 loads that I've got stashed at my place.
But it doesn't end there...
My folks are also needing stuff taken out as well, and that adds another 3-4 loads to our planned dump trip.
So the grand total?
About 14 loads.
I'm hoping to have two trucks, so that we can make just 7 trips instead of wasting my entire day doing nothing but running from house to dump all day...
That, and I'm also praying that this dump date doesn't get postponed for some unknown and ungodly reason, either.
Because if it does, I have no clue when I'll get motivated enough again to make the attempt!
Anyone feel for me?
Time to go find a soda and some doughnuts.
