As we all know, Sunday is Father’s Day. However, at my house, this is apparently “Father’s Weekend” and my husband has two action-packed days planned doing all of his favorite things: mountain biking, drinking beer, hanging out with his buddies, more mountain biking and eating steak.
Somehow, I don’t think mowing the lawn is on his to-do list this weekend. Since Nick is away at the shore for a week, I guess I could step up and deal with the lawnmower to cut our unruly yard. I actually have cut the grass before…once, I think. It didn’t go particularly well (apparently you don’t push a lawn mower the same way you do a vacuum cleaner) and we all agreed that I should probably never get near the mower again. My daughter could do it…wait, I’m laughing too hard to continue that sentence. Never mind.
Lest you think I only value my husband for his mad lawn care skills, I assure you that he is appreciated for far more than that! Besides being a loving partner and my best friend, he’s a great dad to our two kids and has been very involved with them throughout their lives as a coach, Scout leader and even serves on the local school board so that he can make a difference in their educational experience. He’s really a good guy and deserves to have a great Father’s Day/Weekend filled with all of his favorite activities and food.
Besides, the mower will be waiting for him on Monday.
