...see our dead grass?

actually, I would prefer that you didn't see it

but you may as well; everyone else has.

the neighbor asked, "did your sprinklers stop working?"

"No, we just complied with the water only one day a week rule

during last summer's drought,


while the rest of you ignored it."

(I didn't actually say that .... but I thought it real loud in my head)

See the line of demarcation, where neighbor Tim's lovely green yard meets our brown one?


my ENTIRE front and side yard is

DEAD. BROWN. FULL OF WEEDS. HIDEOUS.

seriously, if I lived next to me, I would not be happy

hugs and kisses to everyone

for making our yard look beautiful again


(and no longer the the one the neighbors prattle about,

and the HOA gets their knickers in a bunch over).

I had a bunch of fire ants in my knickers after that day... I looked like I had small pox.

We laid over 7,000 square feet of sod. That was very hard work.
THANK YOU to everyone that helped!!!!

Your HOA needs to read this entry to understand the effects of abiding to their regulations. Though your yard has seen better days, such as how it looks now, your check book probably enjoyed the one day a week rule.

The yard looks great and I'm glad the HOA doesn't have their knickers in a bunch anymore. :)

About Me

My photo
I married my high school sweetheart 34 years ago in the LDS Temple. I have 4 children (3 married, and a 14 year old) and 6 grandchildren. I lived my entire life in California, until 6 years ago. I now reside in San Antonio, Texas. The most important thing to me is my family; I have invested the most in them and it has paid great dividends. I love doing anything creative that beautifies my surroundings and I love nature. I minored in Art and majored in Interior Design at BYU, yet, my profession is a Tax Preparer.
