Yard Men & Wooden Hangers...

The hubby and I like to play this game called "I know I've made it when..." Most people recognize this game as "if I won the lottery..." But, since we're young and the hubby's dream is to take over the Waffle House world, our version of the game is still a possibility. Especially since we don't play the lottery, "if I won the lottery..." doesn't really work for us.

Recently we had one of these spirited conversations dreaming of our what our future holds. The only rules to the game is that it has to be everyday things. Like, "I know I've made it when I can buy the country of Iceland," doesn't work. At least not in our version of the game.

Personally, my ultimate "I know I've made it when..." is when I can have yard men come and take care of my lawn on a weekly basis. I love nicely manicured lawns with flower beds overflowing with colorful flowers...who doesn't? But, no matter how hard I try, the gardening bug can't bite me. I have a mother-in-law who can garden all day long and she has on several occasions tired to show me her ways, but I just can't get into it. It's not that I mind hard work and getting dirty, I just get bored with it fast. So, as soon as a nice group of Mexicans (you know it's true-they do a heck of a job) can come on a weekly basis and landscape my yard and I'm not talking about just coming to mow the lawn and pick up leaves, I'm talking planting flowers too, then I know I've made it.

So, what is the Hubby's "I know I've made it when...?" He knows he's made it when all his clothes are hanging in the closet on wooden hangers. Go figure...that's all it takes?

So what's your "I know I've made it when...?" You know your thinking about it now.

I know I've made it when I take my first all girls cruise (you're in right?@?)!
AND I want a lawn crew too!

David has great taste in hangers.

Ya'll are so my kind of people. :)

Mine is a cleaning lady. Just twice a month to do the floor and bathrooms. That would be heaven. :)
