SM and I took Monday off to try and finish up the tree. The never ending tree. We decided to trim it up ourselves, salvage the best limbs for staking and trellising (for the garden) and then burn the rest.
About mid-day (halfway through the big clean-up) SM said "I'm thinking that paying someone $400 to clean up this mess is starting to look pretty good.
When you're tired and beat, sometimes you just have to play a few head games with yourself.
"Ha! $400 can buy you 8 rounds of golf this summer." I say.
"$400 dollars can buy you a nice vacation at the beach." SM retorts
"$400 dollars can help buy groceries!" Me
"$400 dollars can buy dirt and lumber for the raised garden beds." SM
"$400 dollars can help buy more fruit trees for the back." Me
"More trees?" SM
"The best kind of trees, baby. Apples and pears!" Me
Man...am I beat. We're maybe halfway through. Hopefully next weekend will give us decent weather and we can put this behind us.
I need to go back to work so I can relax and take it easy. (grin)
