My Brother-in-Law rocks! [Dec. 11th, 2007|02:31 pm]

[Current Mood |gratefulgrateful]

As a housewarming gift, Lan just came over, fixed our leaking sink, raked up a metric TON of leaves, trimmed all of our shrubs that were out of control, and really made me feel SO GOOD about how our yard looks. He's still out there 3 hours later working his butt off. I can't imagine a better gift. Seriously. I'm amazed.

If you want to give me the very best gift ever, take some tasks off of my plate that are difficult for me to do. In fact, I was so overwhelmed with the plants in general that I couldn't do this by myself, plus, I know nothing about plumbing.

Being so type A, if I feel "behind in tasks" it makes me feel like I can't relax and am not doing well in life. I worry about how crazy motherhood would make me for that reason. How could you ever not be behind in tasks with a toddler?

It was seriously the best present ever! Please tell him a big THANK YOU from both of us. It really made my whole week.

Heh. I told him what you said about it and he said, "Yeah, well, she has to say that, what's she going to say, your present sucked?" And he told me he forgot to tell you that you can change the color of your hydranges (sp?) by messing with the acidity of the soil. They can be pink, purple, or white, but it's really hard to make them white. He also told me there was lots of other stuff that needed to be done but you'd need a truck to haul away the garbage.
