Mo’ Drama.

Pink eye? Check.

Broken AC on a hot day? Check.

That time of the month? Yup.

3 hours of sleep. You betcha!

To put it bluntly, it was kind of a crappy day. But that’s okay, because even on the “Wah, wah! Poor me!” days, there still has to be SOMETHING that makes you happy…or in my case breathe a sigh of relief.

Let me explain. I live on a suburban street where the lawns are perfectly manicured and white butterflies practically land on your shoulder. It’s a pretty street, and the people are nice–until your yard looks overgrown apparently! I swear that I’ve been getting the evil eye from a few neighbors who have race-walked or biked past our house over the last few days. I KNOW that they were getting progressively more annoyed that our grass height was reaching epic proportions–or maybe I’m just completely paranoid. Okay, I know that I’m kind of paranoid, but it still felt like they were breathing down my neck to make our yard look as clean and perfect as theirs (not to sound all “Keeping up with Joneses-ish”, but that’s how I really feel!). Needless to say, I am once again a respectable neighbor. No more bolting into the car while trying to avoid their stares. My trim lawn is today’s crankiness crusher. Lame, but true! I think it made my dog happier too. He can now take a leak without lifting his leg so high that he practically falls over.  Heh, heh.

Feeling less cranky? Check.

Hope you are too!
