Life & Everything In-between

Life, oh my…

I tell you, this has been a whack the mole sort of past week. Seemed like everytime I accomplished a task another popped up. Decided to just hire a lawn service to begin the Spring mowing. What a headache that has turned into. I finally decided on LawnStarter. I seen that they had a local Google address that I could just drive to if I ran into any issues. Well, I had to agree to at least “3” mowings. What I didn’t realize was there is also a $10 service charge. Not to mention, if you cancel you can get charged for a mowing that you never received. So, when I get a email asking why I cancelled (I didn’t!) I reached out to them to let them know I didn’t. Also, learned in this process that the local office is just a satellite office (no one to personally see). They finally sent a new crew and I rated the new crew 5 stars because it wasn’t their fault what I had been through. LawnStarter has “not” called me once. I’m Looking forward to that 3rd mow!

Surely has been βœ”οΈ

I learned last night that the strip by my neighbors fence that I told the lawn crew not to do is mine too. I knew they mowed it in November so I just thought it was theirs. So, I get to add that one “little” strip to my to do list βœ”οΈ


During some typical Ohio Spring weather lightening hit a tree at the end of the backyard. The tree is actually on a different property owner. The lightening literally split this huge tree in half. I’m not a tree expert but I have to wonder when the other half is going to come down and in which direction.

Caleb has been handling all the Spring excitement well πŸ™‚.

All lined up. He just likes to flip them in his hand.

Well, I have developed a routine of looking out my kitchen window to see if the other half of the tree is standing 🧐. In that process, we were welcomed with a new surprise…

It’s Ground Hog Week! 🀣

Yeah, I know they are cute but they are a yards number 1 hated pest. My sister wants to name it and my brother wants to shoot it. I’m going to try to contact a nature park with rangers and see if they have a trap I can use to trap it for relocating. I definitely can’t garden with a groundhog. (adding to the to do list βœ”οΈ).

Cute but destructive

Then, my Baby Boy calls to let me know he’s packing to leave the Country. He may be gone 1-2 years😭.

The week finally ended with my niece’s 10 year old Birthday πŸŽ‰

Time to go to a Birthday party!
She has left the single digits behind!

Caleb has a hard time celebrating any Birthday that isn’t hisπŸ˜‚.

She is so pretty 🀩❀️

Well, life has been busy and no thanks to Lawn Service issues I am running behind schedule. However, I know it will get better!🀣
