Trying to get my grass to grow back in the front yard to cover the bald spots that has been looking so darn bad for some time now. We are finally getting a few drops of rain some days while at times the drought is still upon us here in central Texas. I'm trying hard not to buy more grass to put down since my yard is not the worse looking one.
The plats of grass is so high through Home Depot and Lowe stores until buying it is expensive this year. They know we are in a drought and it cost plenty dollars to find a yard person to put it down correctly plus the cost of the grass itself and water you have to use in getting it growing.
Another thing about this time of the year is the school kids will be out soon for the summer and that is vacation time for many of them. So we keep an eye open for crowds at one house or another in trying to avoid trouble before it starts.
Being a survivor means making trips to the local stores shopping around for bargains and later shopping for school clothes as they are put on sale at all the department stores. Shopping for new cars are about over after Tax Return times. I notice now many cars with paper tags and smiling faces behind the wheel there are daily. Other shoppers will be in the market for buying houses since the interest mortgage rates has dropped so low this summer.
For me life goes on and soon it will be ten years as a survivor and I'm saying thank God I have made it this far in my recovery process with my wife! Of course my body feels like it's been all of 20 years since the stroke. I'm not complaining! Just getting older with fewer moving parts without pains!!
