Have you ever tried convincing someone you need something?

This past weekend, I convinced Flower Boy to purchase me one of these!
I wanted it!
I thought it would be easier for me to run than a weed eater.
I thought it would give me a good workout.
Plus, I felt like I would be doing my part in maintaining the yard.
(Remember, we maintain about 4 acres of yard.)
Flower Boy was against it because he says...
"You don't need to work that hard."
"We (Drewman and Flower Boy) can run the weed eaters."
I wasn't going to set, on the porch, and look pretty while they were doing all the work.
This was my argument...
"This is something I can do and I am willing to do what I can.
I know I am not a man and can't do a lot of what they do,
But this...

 Totally against Flower Boy's will, we made the purchase.
It trims around the pond nicely!

It trims up the creek line nicely.
It trims around the entry way nicely.

 It trims around the rocks nicely.

I almost wish I hadn't been so convincing!
I have a lot more to trim!
Nothing like a good 'ole country workout!
Wonder who will be setting, on the porch, looking pretty now?

  1. Shouldn't this one be titled, "Be careful for what you wish for!"? It does trim nicely though, haha
