It's Monday Musings time again. Over the past couple of weeks, I have been called OCD about something that few women that I personally know could care less about...My Lawn. Let me preface this blog by saying that I was raised in a household where the lawn was cut every week and watered regularly.
When we moved into our home, the whole street looked like a desert. My next door neighbors both keep the yard cut, but water was scarce in any yard within a few houses. Within a week of moving in, I had a 150 ft hose attached and a fantastic sprinkler and Scotts Lawn service had already treated the yard. I also watered the yard for about 13 hours over a span of 4 days and was laughed at by a certain person who shall remain nameless.
This was the norm on the street or worse...and also how our yard looked when we moved in. All the front yards...I was going nuts.
Am I allowing for my normal competetive nature to influence this area of my life, or do I just want to have our home look nice on the outside and the inside because that's how I was raised?
Since my view is biased...what do you think?
Who's up for Monday Musings query?
