I am alive!

It’s been a while! Boy, nothing like coming home from vacation to set you up for needing another one, eh?  We decided, okay I decided that we needed to attack our back yard and eradicate the weeds.  When we moved into this house in August of 2007 the landscape guys seeded our lawn.  I got out there when I could to weed out the little pests and was doing a pretty good job. Then as the grass really grew in, the landscape company came in to take care of the lawn, with their dirty equiptment.  They introduced more and more weed seeds until our lawn was nothing but weeds and some grass.  I mostly just ignored it and focused on doing other things inside, but recently declared NO MORE WEEDS!  we dug up the back yard (a smallish fenced in area) and got out as many weeds as possible and planted grass.  We bought trays of grass but not enough to lay it like sod, hey that’s a lotta jack! we cut it up in little squares and put it out. we’ve been watering and continuing the weeding process and hopefully before we move out of here in 3 years there’ll be grass back there.
