It’s always damp.

So moss grows on everything. Like, everything. It’s this like neon green color that is actually quite pleasing to the eyeball but apparently when it grows in your yard it suffocates the grass and it cannot grow. Who knew?

Not this girl. So, spring arrives and I’m like, OK time to do some yard work. Let me call this lawn bruh and get a quote on what it would be to spruce up the place. Our house and yard combined are like approximately 5 square feet, so I’m thinking $200 max. Gentleman pays us a visit and takes a look. Please guess what this man quoted me. GUESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS.




$850+. Note the + !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    That quote is just crazy! I live the in the PNW but on the “dry side.” p.s. I think I could add a can of cannellini beans to almost anything! Or plop an egg on something. Hey that’s a thought, cannellini with an egg on top. Just rambling, don’t mind me!

    There are mad people out there. Really. Honestly. Mad people. They get outrageous quotes for tiny leetle bits of work and they say yes, bro – good to go. I dream of being one of those people and being able to say yes rather than having to rock that yard wear A-gain!
