Yesterday marked a special occasion for the homeowner in me: the first time I have mowed my own lawn. You might ask how can that be if you know that I have owned my own home more or less since 1998. You might wonder, haven’t you been in your current home form more than 2 years? Well yes you might, or you might want me to stop writing about lawn mowing.
Years of living in a townhouse or in homes owned by others combined with the nearly 2 years it has taken to get a proper, mowable lawn in place at my new house have made yesterday’s milestone event possible.
