so, today i spent my day at the fam's- because mr. fixit was working on the front steps and needed to plug in an extension cord at the fam's- mom doesn't and can't do stairs- and sister had to work late and mr. man is slow, slow, slow. i ended up planting her garden-- finally! trimming the neighbor's trees out of my backyard and sideyard fence since they won't keep their own trees trimmed, and i pulled weeds out of the 'flower bed' on the side of the house. the whole yard is a big like a jungle. i have a feeling it will take me all summer to tame it.
i also trimmed and fertilized mom's two surviving houseplants and put the ends in a root cup. i am pooped.
