MOWING THE SLOPES

Question Of The Week 8-4-14

Is there one 
of your responsibilities 
you wish you 
could get rid of?

Love to mow but not the slopes or hills.

  1. My slopes are mild compared to yours, but I still avoid them. I hate that feeling of sliding off the the tractor. I have never actually slid off, but it always feels inevitable.

  2. Actually the slopes are the only thing that make me glad I am overweight so I can keep mower from tipping over.

    The last hospital stay for Ron had me sitting in the waiting room with a mother whose daughter was having her feet reattached after turning over her lawnmower on a slope and lost both feet.

    I am overweight too but it still doesn't give me much reassurance.

    But Olga and Patti both, what about the question? What responsibilities in your lives would you like to give up.

  5. The last time I pushed a mower (not a riding one), my foot slipped under it on a slope and I lost 1/4 of my big toe. I will never touch a mower again.

  6. I'd give up kitchen and bathroom cleaning.

    getting to the odd spot in a bathroom hurts my back really bad and while I love to cook and eat, the cleanup is major aggravation to the point that I have almost stopped cooking at all and just eat when I can grab out of the fridge-- sandwiches or salads.

    Living in this new town home removed all exterior work for me~! yeaaaaa

    love you barrels and buchels..

  7. I suppose my biggest responsibility is to myself, insuring that I am moral, compassionate, upstanding and courteous so I have decided I would like to give that up and become an asshole like most everybody else… they seem to enjoy it!

  8. I'd love to do volunteer work every day, which would mean that I would have to give up my paying job. :)

  9. '' wish I'd seen Alan's comment before I posted.:)
    I wanna do that too and truth me told these new meds they have me on are leading me quickly in that direction. they have just about completely removed my former "Charm Factor", where for 57 years I spent smiling sweetly and saying what folks wanted to hear.
    its a very liberating experience even if I do hear people whisper behind my back when I walk away, "what a BEOTCH" sonny is..

    lol lol

    Making my bed used to be a lot easier before they came up with all these extra throw pillows and decorative matching pillows with cases that have to be piled on the bed too.

    OMG! Never dreamed you had cut off part of your toe. I want to see that when we meet.

    I gave that up. Have a housekeeper who loves to clean:)

    Somehow I doubt you would be a successful asshole but then again, who really knows about such things.

    Lynn
    I would like that for you so much. You are perfect for caring for others and spreading sunshine.

    sonny
    No Sonny is NOT a BEOTCH! But I do bet that you can dish it out when it is necessary. Bunches and bushels of love and hugs from me too.

  11. Kitty litter. Decidedly kitty litter.
    And, if I knew where my guilt button lived I would disconnect it permanently - which would free me from quite a number of 'chores'.

  12. Oh my goodness. My role in the family business is, shall we say, a mixed blessing. I will not be sure until many years from now whether or not it's a good investment of my time, or if it will all come to a bad end, but in the meantime it's my responsibility whether I like it or not.

  18. Just one? no- many!

    Litter box Scooping several times per day, Scrubbing floors by hand n moving the furniture to do it, hand -washing all the laundry in buckets, every morning n evening, bailing the bottom of my drippy in summer heat frig with sponges daily,- then there's the work hurting my body stuff like my blister sores on fingertips this week. That's just the beginning...
