I am dreading going home today!
Well, it’s not so much that I am dreading going home, more like I am dreading what I will see when I get home. Mr OL had grass laid in our backyard over the weekend.
The reason we needed new grass is because the dogs destroyed the old stuff. A combination of digging and running left our backyard a dust bowl. They had literally run a race track around our garden. The track was about ½ a meter deep and was complete with steep cambered corners and everything – perfect if we had a little boy who needed a BMX track but not so good when you want a stylish back yard.
My solution was to leave it – who knows maybe in a couple of years we would need a BMX track????
Mr OL’s solution – fix it. Hmmm, I am not so optimistic. I think he has a short term memory problem. I recall what happened about a year ago to my lavender plants, I recall what happened about 6 months ago to the newly installed irrigation system and I recall what happened about 2 months ago to my little tomato plants. I fear the freshly laid grass is going to go exactly the same way as those things did. Dug up and chewed!!!!
So, when I get home and I going to find two “innocent” looking dogs covered in mud or am I going to be pleasantly surprised?
