    Some services are worth it, including house cleaning and yard maintenance. That said, between the ages of 12 and 18 the yard was my son’s job no matter how much better a professional would have done it.
    Nah, the lawn is all mine.

    • My dad made me do the lawn since I was 8-9 till I was 16. I hated that so much.

          Now do you look back fondly on that time you spent mowing the lawn as kid and appreciate the skills you learned? And every time you fire up the lawnmower think of how glad you are that your dad made you stick with it, like all those kids that were forced to play the piano?

            No it taught me nothing, only resentment because my sister would sit in the house and get to do whatever she wanted. I don't have a lawn to mow.

              I don’t trust a man that doesn’t enjoy cutting his grass.

                We had one acre lot in South Georgia while growing up. I had to cut that grass every week in 90+ degree heat and humidity. Took me 2 hours to cut it and I hated every min of it.

                • I also had the job of lawnmowing from about 10-18. My sister also got out of it which irked me. We had 5 acres but only mowed 3. Took about 2-3 hours on a rider. Another 30-60 minutes for trim but I did not always do that every week. I do not remember hating it but I remember it being boring. I would always challenge myself to get it done faster or more efficiently.

                  I would love to do it now. Sitting on a mower for 2 hours a week sounds awesome! I could get ahead on my audiobooks or just think. Sometimes I feel we do not let ourselves get bored enough and it prevents us from really delving into our mind.


                  Now I have a little half acre lot that I hire a neighbor/friend to mow for $30 a time. It is so cheap I hate to give it up but I do miss it. I am thinking about taking it back over this summer. I could easily do it with a push. I might get one of those electric guys.
