Do you wanna get it all done? And by all, I actually mean *everything*!? Here's a step-by-step tutorial:
1) Plan a trip to visit family. Tell hubby he's staying at home rather than joining you.
2) Go enjoy your time in Georgia, savoring the cuddles with cousins, field trips to the Rock Ranch, sessions at the Chuck E. Cheese, happy hours with old friends, trips to the ER for your poor son, momentarily forgetting that you have a loved one 850 miles away...
3) Make it home in one piece (despite the injured son).
4) Realize that YES, you do have it all. Be inspired by the awesomeness!
A clean side yard, less lots of junk and one dying cherry tree!
A new black-top on the driveway!
(Free) Granite staged for a patio!
More wild flowers in bloom!
Finally, a squash on the mystery vine!
Sunflowers ready to bloom!
Peppers, tomatoes, melons!*
See? It's easy to have it all! Leave for awhile, and it all magically happens!
*Having it all also means you can use exclamation points with abandon.
