I took on being the grounds keeper for my dad and step-moms church. Extra baby funds for when that happens.
They have a pretty big lawn. And it is a maniac. I took too long to mow it the first time...it was over a foot long in some spots. In my defence, a week before, it had hardly started growing.
So I spent 7 hours. YES. 7 hours (split by 3 days) cutting that damn lawn, literally inch by inch because the mower isn't powerful enough to take more than that when the grass is 6-13 inched long.
I didn't learn my lesson the first time. I got an e-mail from my step mom a week after I finished cutting (it was frappy week. Ain't nobody got time for that shit) asking when I was going to cut the lawn again.
I *had* planned on cutting it on Sunday. Then it HAILED! so a week and a half after I finished, (so like, 2 weeks after I started) it's back to being a foot high. The mower is battery operated, so with how long it is, I can only cut for about an hour and a half each time!
It will calm down some soon (omg I hope) so I can actually do some other gardening. Like making it look pretty!
