The Weekend

I think it's been a somewhat productive weekend for dh.  He's been doing motorcycle activities (I stayed home) and he's been working on and finally got his lawn mower to work.  See, he has a lawn mower that is like the ones lawn services use where you can stand up behind the mower (only he doesn't have the plate to stand up on) but he likes his big hunka lawn mower.  It must be like 25 years old and when it finally gave out last year he refused to purchase a new one.  So he started working on this hunka lawn mower last year.  His brother even found a used mower that didn't run for dh to take parts off of.  When the weather started getting nice here, dh started working on that lawn mower.  Then guess what?  He finally got it running yesterday!  Now he needs to work on the gears such as the brakes and such.  He's been working on it all day today.  It's almost a race against him and the grass to see who's gonna win out first.  The grass is about ankle high right now and you know if it gets too high, it's hard to cut.  So that's the biggest worry on dh's mind right now. 

Next, he'll be working to get my motorcycle running.  It hasn't run in about two years and he can't figure out what's wrong with it.  He has taken it apart and put it back together a few times, but when he gives it gas it wants to cut off.  Definitely something with the fuel line or carberator. 

I cooked dinner tonight...meat loaf and mashed potatoes.  Yesterday dh went to KFC and I made some coleslaw, so at least tonight we stayed home again. 

I need to get some cleaning done and balance the checkbook so I can pay some bills.  Until later...
