Never mind.

While at my parents, I learned to use their zero-turn lawnmower. Once I got the hang of it, it was pretty cool. So fast! So when I got back home and was working on the lawn Saturday, I had the momentary thought. “Man, this would go so much faster with a zero-turn mower instead of my lawn tractor.”

The, the lawn tractor quit.

I mowed with the push mower while Blaine worked on the tractor. It takes five hours to mow with the push mower. Our entire lawn is a hill. I mowed with it for about an hour before Blaine got the tractor up and running again.

Covetousness moment over.

Wow. How bad did your legs hurt after 5 hours of pushing the lawnmower up and down a hill?

I did it the whole first summer we had this place - then, it wasn't bad at all. I was pregnant with Charlotte and in great shape. Now... my legs were shaky and sore minutes in. I think mowing this hill did me good!
