Feeling Naked

February 6, 2009

It has been a very exciting day thus far.  The tree people came at 9:00 AM, right on time and proceeded to hack away.  It didn’t take long at all….then a few hours later the stump grinder specialist came by.  Who knew that the tree people outsource the stump grinding because the machine is so expensive to maintain.  That’s your lesson in Tree Removal today, you can thank me later when it comes up in dinner party conversation.  The next step is to pick some trees and have them planted.  What are your thoughts on a nice Red Oak:

Or a Chinese Pistachio:

Submit your suggestions and if I choose your tree I will let you come over and mow our lawn!  Exciting isn’t it – ok, ok, then you can take a dip in the pool before you trim the hedges.

Here are some photos of the carnage:

Now our yard feels so naked, so bare but at least I don’t have to look at the sad, dead trees anymore – that’s a bonus.

 

In other news here is a little tid bit on marriage.  Some say that once you get the ring all the romance and surprise just goes out the door.  I beg to differ.  Example A: last night I came home from a long grueling day.  Upstairs on our dresser was a neatly piled “after work outfit” for me and underneath that was……MARIO CART!  Chad finally found it!  My Wii game stash is finally complete.  And it was so sweet that he picked out my sexiest striped PJ pants, an equally cute 30 year old t-shirt that I stole from my Dad years ago and my uber HAWT blue fuzzy socks that I nabbed from Walgreens before Christmas….not to mention that my glasses were sitting atop the pile (are you getting a mental pic yet?).  Oh how love progresses and changes in just a matter of a few years.  No longer are elaborate dinners and nights out necessary, nope.  It really does become about the little thoughtful things that you do for one another.  Me, I keep the fridge and freezer stocked with pudding and Klondike bars at all times for Chad and I make sure to hang dry his favorite t-shirts so that they don’t shrink up and show his stomach (although I will argue to the DEATH that cotton clothing does that naturally after several washes and it is NOT I repeat NOT related to my laundry skills).  Anyhow, I felt led to share that with all of you today.  Have a great weekend!

 

P.S. This weekend He’s Just Not That Into You comes out, and we are going on Saturday, I can’t wait!

    I vote for the Red Oak. They are very hearty trees – I have about 100 of them on my lot. Yep, I actually counted them. They are on 1.37 acres. We’ll let you use our riding mower if decide on the oak.

    Chad – way to go, Bubba!

    I like the red oak as well. I think they really look cool if you trim the branches as they grow.

    Oh, and nice job on the staircase!
