Tomorrow we start our vacation before our vacation. This is a working vacation though as our yard has fallen into a horrible state of disrepair and trying to get any appreciable amount of yard work done while in the company of a three year old and a five year old is like trying to teach a dog to fold clothes. I have high hopes that we'll be able to get a lot accomplished, and if we don't, I'm making a brisket while we work, so if the yard still ends up looking like shit, at least we'll have smoked meat to feast upon.
So far the only snag is that we were supposed to order pine straw to be spread upon our landscape beds and we kind of, well, forgot. Hopefully we can finagle some sort of same day delivery, or I'll be driving around in a van that reeks of the forest primeval. Thankfully there's plenty of work to do even without spreading the pine straw. Thank heavens for small miracles, and neglectful home owners.
