I think I am starting to like mowing my yard. Really. Just hear me out for a second.
I know, I always say that I don’t like outside and I hate nature unless it is the beach, but that sort of comes into play.
First (and least surprisingly) it is good exercise and gives me a feeling of accomplishment. When I am done I can actually see that the lawn looks different. That is nice.
Second (or third, that part was kind of two) my iPod is awesome. My iPod is way better than other people’s iPods because there aren’t any songs on it that I hate. I used to put stuff on my iPod so that my husband wouldn’t laugh at me, or so if someone was in my car they would think I was cool. I don’t do that these days. I don’t give a shit anymore. Now I just put on songs I like. Right now I have 594 songs all of my choosing. Today when I mowed I heard Slayer, Mozart, Tomahawk, Alice in Chains, R.E.M., KIX and Blur. It ruled.
My attitude is also better. Well, maybe not better, but it works.
Mowing my yard has become Sarah vs. Nature. When Slayer is on – no mercy, when Mozart is on la vendetta. Pixies? Wave of Mutilation.
Now that I think about it my iPod has a lot of pent up hostility.

So, mowing works for me, and I think it makes Gabe’s life slightly easier.
Plus my neighbors think I am a good worker.
It is a win/win/win/win. For now. Soon it will get too hot and I’m sure I’ll hate it again.
