My first lawn

I have NEVER mowed a lawn in my life. I think I did a little patch one time when I was growing up, but it lasted about 15sec and I was done. 

I have never mowed my own lawn. Nevermind that it looks like a jungle and my 'dog' has to jump around to find a spot. I don't really care... my neighbors may... (are that family- I could make an entire post on the HOA letters we have gotten!). 

So Zach asked if I would help mow last week. The church

He tried to teach me how to work the mower in about 2min and left. I looked like I had vodka on my corn flakes - I was swerving all over. 

And if that wasn't enough, I was on the corner of Southport & Arlington, with all of my fats jiggling around for the Thursday traffic. 

Once I got the hang of it, it was too awful. The day was sunny, but cool and I was alone with my music - that is never bad. 

My biceps and triceps are still sore from tensing up, so I did get a bit of a workout.

I'll be sure to scrutinize it Sunday, unless of course it's ten feet tall again like our "lawn".
