...how about a small disaster in your yard?
A tree...no, wait...a LARGE tree fell over in our yard into our pool today. Took out our patio table, too.
We're pretty sure that it was the installment of the french drain alongside the tree that caused it to become so weak. Not only did it have less ground to hold on to on wet days like today, but it's fucking ROOTS WERE HACKED. Now, I was unaware of that. I had no idea that a drain was even over there. I leave all the outdoor shit to Leo to handle because as soon as he starts talking about it, my brain wanders off and thinks about those awesome clothes I ordered from that British company I love and whether they'll show up anytime soon, and then whether or not I've exceeded my Weight Watchers points for the day/week, and which Friends rerun will be on tonight, etc, etc...
So I guess that was my mistake? Or lesson learned for Leo? I dunno.
But dammit. Now I REALLY need a good weekend away. Hope you're ready for me, Chicago!
Happy Memorial Day, all. And to any veterans, or families of vets that might be reading this, thank you, from the bottom of my heart. THANK YOU, for all you did, all you do, and all you continue to do in support of our great country.
