Upside is that this was 20+ years ago, so there was nothing but trees/parks around that old-ass development @ the time and I lived right off of Villbig lake for like $109k on a really large lot. :hs:
That lot is probably worth $950,000 now lmao

SOOOOOOOooooooooo..........

Years ago i had the brilliant idea to replace the bushes/mulch in front of my house with red rubber mulch. Good idea for about 6 years.

The last year the weed barrier has really failed and it's just a mess so it was time to scoop all that shit up, back down to the dirt. This sucks and with some shit going on, it almost kills me. (for reference, i used to knock out 50 miles in 102F temps and no big deal now i can do like 4 miles on the bike in 70 degree temps).

Spent a few weekends clearing out half, ended up with this mess this morning but hey, it's cleared out, barrier is down

as you can see, the other side if a mess. Neighbor says "my cousin can do that for you" and we negotiate a price (waaaay high but the cousin is there because grandma has stage3 breast cancer and can use cash)

about 90 mins later

now, who knows where i can getg a good deal on about 1200lbs of river rock (1.5-3")

will prob also roll out a few quick strips of extra barrier because i still have a mile of it. but at least no more shoveling up ruibber, dirt, rocks, weeds. fuck that.

Also there were 3 snakes (lil guys) in that side

check with your HOA and make sure all of that is "allowed"

Moose got upset about it at around 3:30, so I got up for about an hour, thinking it would pass quickly. Well it didn't, so I ended up lifting him onto my bed (too high for him to leap anymore) and let him sleep with me for a few hours.

I could not sleep at all last night. Storm was relentless in W. Frisco near lake lewisville. :hs:
I was lucky I went to bed way earlier than I normally do. Lol. Like 9pm so by the time I was woken up at 5 I was like, "welp, time to start my day."

Shit started around 2:30 for us. I had juuuust fallen asleep after not trying to get to sleep until midnight. Paying for that choice today. Worth it, though. :o :rofl:

Had a strike last night that sounded super close to my house

Tried finding it on my cams but no luck yet. Couldn’t have been more than a couple hundred feet away
