Mowing the Lawn

We have a fairly big yard--about 1 acre, and it takes Ben about 1 1/2 hours to mow (it takes me 2 hours because I am a little slower) on our riding lawn mower.  We have been in this house for almost 5 years, and the first time I moved the lawn was last year.  Ben didn't want me using his mower--wouldn't even let me touch it.  I offered several times, but he politely refused.  Finally the first time I got to mow it he was weed eating while I mowed, and when he was done he kept looking at me and motioning  "Get off"  and following me around and saying "My turn."  I just kept going and laughed.  I don't know what it is with guys and their lawn mowers.  This morning I was talking on the phone with him at work and said, "I am going to mow the lawn this afternoon."  "NO!" He says, "I will do it when I get home."  I said, 'When? We have this and this and this, there is no time." "No," he says, "I will do it."  I said, "What?  You don't like the way I mow the lawn?"  then he didn't really answer and I just laughed.  It must be a guy thing.  But I admit, I would be kind of leery of him using my Cricut, so I guess it goes both ways. :) But I'd better go, I have to get the lawn mowed before he gets home :)


  1. Oh Jen, I sooo identify! Although with the "new" business and it taking 3 hours to mow... I have been doing it the last 3 years! HA HA Last weekend I was finishing it as Herb came home from work and he tried to get my attention so he could finish... ha ha But then I don't want him messin' with my equipment either! :D

  2. You are so funny Jen! I was cracking up the whole time while reading this post. I too can identify!
