I learned something new about myself . . .

Yep, I never thought it would be true of me, but I have discovered over the past few months that I'm a suburbanite yuppie. Sort of. Granted, I don't have a white picket fence, but through the summer, I'm obsessed with the lawn. It has to be cut regularly, and I don't want to see weeds or grass clippings scattered on the driveway or sidewalk. Even worse, if the neighbors have not trimmed their lawn, it's like a little thorn in my side. I mean, come on, why should I even care?

The town I live in is booming . . . the population is growing a lot more quickly than the housing is, so lots of homes have many people living in them, instead of just one family. The new "fad" is for people to park their vehicles on the front lawn, thus killing the grass. Guess what? Yep, you're right, it drives me CRAZY. I can't stand seeing vehicles parked on the lawn . . . it just seems so - hillbilly - to me.

Sorry about not posting for several months. That's the worst lapse I've had yet. I don't really have a solid excuse, other than the myriad of changes that I've gone through since June. Some have been fabulous, some have been stressful, and everything's been busy. But I'm hoping to at least post weekly, so that folks that read this blog regularly won't think I've disappeared off the face of the earth.

Hope y'all are well!
