Finally we came to an agreement that if we build up the back wall, we could remove the bushes. So this weekend we cut down all the bushes to the base, bundled them up, and piled them just waiting for today. In the spring we'll remove the flower bed trim, plant some sod, and maybe even add a fire pit to the area that was just a mess of bushes and weeds.
Well this morning it rained on our 8 bundles of bushes. And the trucks were late. So Logan and I loaded all the bundles into the dumpster and a few rocks Dave wanted removed as well. It was so cold and messy, but I'm so glad it's done.
Monday was pretty crazy too. Logan's been teething again. I swear he gets the worse teething of anyone I know! Logan kept trying to put both fists in his mouth to gnaw on, along with everything else he could find. He was so ornery all day long! He refused to wear a shirt, screaming at me when I put it on, and ripping it off again and again. So I gave in and let him go topless for the afternoon.
Also, since he refused to nap and was crying anyway, I decided to do the canning I had planned for the rest of the week. We did applesauce and spaghetti sauce. I'm just glad it's now over. Logan loves applesauce, and we've eat a lot of pasta, so both will be used.
He's been ornery again today, and I hope this tooth comes in quickly. The rest of the week will be wasted if not!
