"My Husband Rocks!" Friday

Why does Jeff rock this week?

Hmmmm, where to start? Well, first he does ALL of our yard work. In the household I grew up in yard work (i.e. lawn mowing) was considered "man work" (grunt, grunt, scratch, scratch). Now, I know that in the 21st century, this doesn't hold true, but I am not all that opposed to allowing that outdated assumption to continue.

In addition to doing our yard work, Jeff also mows and does various other yard related things for a dear older friend of ours who is a widow. He knows that if he doesn't do it, our very stubborn friend will get out on that mower herself and she is prone to sever asthma attacks, random fits of passing out, and a host of other illnesses that she has acquired from her years of tireless service in third world countries.

And, as if that was not enough, Jeff has now taken on mowing his dad's yard, too.

So, in the midst of all this mowing, I have no idea when I am actually going to SEE my husband, but he rocks for his attitude of complete selflessness.

For some reason this post made me laugh (I think it was your cute description of your elderly neighbor!). My hubby is "in charge" of the lawn too, and he takes great pride in doing it, right down to sweeping the clippings off of the sidewalk in front of the house! lol
