I ended up doing 3 yards and starting one. I almost finished the last one but the rain came down to hard so I went home. I will go back tomorrow, and do the back, as well as see what else I can get done as well. I have at least one to cut, but not sure on anything else yet.
I am still technically about 2 yards behind since I started one on Sunday I didn’t finish yet, but it has been so wet that I can’t do anything without making a mess of the yard. I hate yards that don’t drain well, since it makes the ground very soggy when it keeps raining.

This entry almost didn’t happen today since I ended up doing 7 jobs, and working from 7 in the morning to around 6PM. I only took about a 45 minute break to eat my dinner and went back to work. The problem is that I am technically still behind sadly.
I have 5 to do tomorrow, possibly 6 or even more depending on who calls me. I am sure that if we keep getting rain like this, I will end up running out of time and being behind well into the fall and winter months. I am sure I will be done sometime around Thanksgiving at this rate!

I didn’t get much done today, so tomorrow will be very busy for me. I have at least 9 jobs but like today I know that I will not get to all of them. I am just going to try and get as much done as I can and take it from there I guess.
One of the ones I tried to do was way too wet, so I ended up heading home and will do it tomorrow now. I have a lot planned for tomorrow, but as long I can get through as many yards as I can and see what happens with this rain.

Today is a day off for me, since it is raining yet again. We don’t need this rain but it will keep the grass nice and green for sure. I am going to wait and see what happens today into tonight and go from there to see what I will be doing, if anything, tomorrow. Time shall tell.
The problem with the weather being like this is they can claim that we are going to get around 2 inches today, but we can get a lot less than that or we could even get more than that. Being a weatherman must be great because you can be wrong and not get fired! Just claim the storm track changed. The possibilities are endless!
Speaking of getting fired, one person I worked for fired me since he claims I wasn’t doing the whole yard. He had never told me that I needed to do behind the shed, or to go on the outside of the bushes and behind the trees in the back. His 2 yards are ones that I won’t miss at all as they were a pain to cut for the 20 each I got and we’re every other week yards. I prefer to do yards weekly as it makes them easier to cut when they aren’t 2 feet tall!

It is crazy when you think that next weekend will be the 4th of July. It seems like the summer just started with the long horrible winter we had. Before you know it, the kids will be back in school, and I will be getting out the snow blowers.
Time has been zipping by lately for me. I did 6 jobs today, and it will rain tomorrow into Sunday so I am not sure how much work I will be able to do on Sunday or Monday yet. The problem is we can get the 4 inches they are claiming, or nothing at all, so I have to wait and see what happens and take it from there at this point.
I have 2 that I didn’t get to, another person called, and 3 or 4 for this Sunday. I am pretty much swamped and have no clue when I will finally get caught up and at this point I am not sure if how much I care, as long as I can keep busy I will be happy. Tomorrow will be my first day off since I am not counting the one day that I did some weeding only.

Today was a long day even though I only got 3 yards done. The problem was I got stuck waiting for people today, so I started late, and then I took a break and next thing I knew I was sitting there for a half hour! I have a lot to do tomorrow as well.
I am looking at the weather and this weekend will be a wash out with someone saying they heard 2 to 3 inches of rain. If we get that, I will probably not be doing much of anything this weekend at all! I have at least 3 planned for Sunday though.

Today was a long day and tomorrow looks to be another long one, with Friday being even worse! I plan to see what I can get done tomorrow to take off some of my load for Friday since at least 4 of the ones I will be doing on Friday are close to each other.
Of course, with the way this weather is, everything is growing like crazy. I am not sure but they are saying that it will rain again on Saturday and even some on Sunday which means I may not be able to do much this weekend but it is still too far off.
