Birthday Gifts ala Home Ownership

When you buy a new home, you begin to receive gifts for birthdays and Christmas specific to caring for said abode.

Yesterday, my parents gave me a Weed Eater lawn mower and mulcher for my birthday! (See picture to the left.)

You're probably saying, "A lawn mower? What kind of gift is that?!"

Actually, I'm thrilled with the gift. Even though my yard is the size of a postage stamp, it's so much nicer to care for with a mower than with a weed whacker.

I can't wait to see what I get for Christmas! Thanks, Mom and Dad! (Oh, and a special thanks to Dad for actually mowing and trimming my lawn yesterday.)

(Now if I can just find a way to make the feral cats in the neighborhood stop crapping in my grass, I'll be ecstatic.)

I LOVE those really practical gifts! Like I really need another pair of earrings? I mean, I'd never turn them down, but it's nice to get something that's going to make your life better on a very regular basis.
