OK, I have just got to tell y'all that hiring a yard service and cleaning service was the best decision I've made in years.
I go away for the weekend - come home, and the grass is cut.
Come home from the dentist - a tree has been planted in my yard.
Go out for lunch - come home to a clean house.
I feel so.... stress-free. All I have to do is put my stuff away when I am done with it, clean the cat box and wash my clothes. This, I can do. And really, it doesn't cost that much. The money I've saved by making wine has paid for it.
Seriously. I drink a lot of wine.
Now, the next project is to stake this tree for the next two years. Any advice?
