Daddy's gone tool shopping, Everybody run!

I spent most of the day looking for another new weed-eater. And now that I am home with a new machine, no one is here to ogle it with me. The wife and kiddos have gone up to The Mother of the Bride's house until Monday afternoon.

Sadly, I had to miss the trip since I have to teach Sunday School AND the yard needed to be hit with a fully functional weed-eater. No way am I leaving town with a half edged yard. The neighbors would talk...

I found the newest family member (And that is true, since my new nephew was born at like 3pm and I bought the weed-eater at 7:30) at Lowes for $50 more than the gas powered junk-mobile from Sears. It was $50 well spent. More money seems to = AtHomeDaddy not throwing a hissy fit in the driveway when the machine turns out to be a piece of crap.

Now that the yard is finally finished, I am having big fun. Watching the Bravo broadcast of the Live Earth concert and catching up on a little blogging. Not sure what I will do until Monday afternoon.

Probably nothing. Lots and lots of nothing.

Glad you found a more reliable weed eater. You're right - no one likes to see a grown man throw a tantrum in his own lawn.

Yeah, even though I am a Jedi level hissy fitter, it still isn't something for the neighbors to see.

My MIL is great. Especially since she can handle me being around. Gotta be nice you know, she reads sometimes...
