Phew. I think I AM dead. Why? Well, it's hot here and I have been hiding in the air conditioning like I mentioned yesterday. Well, I desperately needed to mow the front lawn. I went out and got the mower started up after some work. (it has to be rigged up to run! LOL) So, I get it running, go and I"m mowing and it starts sputtering. I was hoping it would straighten out, but no. It cut off. I walked it all the way back around and put gas in it, worked on it a bit, and started it. Went and got the rest done. Just the front, mind you! So, I do that, and then remember my friend asked if I would trim some of the bushes in my driveway so they didn't brush his car. They don't brush mine so I don't pay any attention to them hanging out a bit. I came in, grabbed my clippers, and went to do that. Keep in mind that I'm already hot as hell from mowing. I get that done and then rinse off Goontz as I needed to run out. Well, I turn to go into the house and realize my keys are not on my wrist. D'OH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So, I think and think, where the heck did they go? I looked all around and then I remembered when I went out front to clip a few weeds at the street that my mower can't get, I laid them down. I go, thinking they are there and they are not. I think, okay, I know I didn't leave them there. What if I did leave them there? What if someone came and took them? They'll have a key to my house and to Goontz! I was freaking the f out as you can imagine. I looked in that area thoroughly, left, went back, and looked several more times. I had left my phone in my room, so I had no way to call anyone. I remembered that I have a tool that lets me get in my back door so I went to get it and got inside. (Yeah, my backdoor has issues too!) I look, hoping I had brought my keys in and forgot. Nope.
So, I got back out to the front spot AGAIN and look. I go back around the house and just stood there trying to think. It was on my arm when I was clipping the branches, maybe when I tossed the branches to the side, they fell off? So, I look in the first place, nothing, I go to the next place, move the branches and BINGO!!!!!! I let out a HUGE sigh of relief. I gathered them up and came in. Of course, by now, I was so hot, that I was almost sick. I was soaked in sweat and just miserable. I took off my soaked shirt, washed myself off with cool water, and came into my room with the air conditioner. I still need to run that errand, but it may wait until tomorrow!
