I have missed the Cousins Camp Out this year. On the other hand, the Mr. and I have done a lot of yard work.
We've been a bit chainsaw happy, getting rid of a lot of dead branches and undergrowth. On the other hand, we've now given the deer an easier pass over the back fence.
The backyard looks a lot better. On the other hand, the Mr.'s face doesn't. (He might have lost the battle with a branch that skinned up his nose and cheek.)
We'll have to admit that we've been able to accomplish quite a bit. On the other hand, it wasn't as much fun as hanging out with the CrAzY cousins.
On the other hand--there's always next year.
