When I grow up

When I grow up…September 14, 2005

I am not doing well with my duplex responsibilities, and its only been a week.
True to my Jenni self, I have been messing up a lot lately. I try to be responsible, but then procrastination sets in and takes over. I have had my duplex since the 1st of this month, but I didnt actually move in until Saturday of last weekend. I am new to the idea of setting up utilities, gas, water etc. seeing that my rental history has been in apartments. So most of these things are new to me, granted I dealt with them while living with my parents, yes, I am making excuses.

I have a lawn that needs watering, and mowing, and its practically dead now. So I watered it this weekend, but didnt know that you dont need to water it every day like I thought. I called Mrs Green Thumb last night (mom) and she laughed at me. And it rained too so I think I may have over watered. Oh well.

This morning, as I was laying in bed after my alarm went off, I was thinking to myself "I wonder when my trash pickup is?" Outside I hear the familiar sounds of a garbage truck banging around, and then moving on to the next house. So I jump out of bed, and pull on some boxer shorts and hustle out into the garage to the large piles of trash I have amassed since moving in. As I am pulling my garage door open and running out to the drive way with my trash can rolling behind me...the garbage truck pulls away, leaving me in its dust, in my pajamas, barefoot in the middle of my driveway.

When I grow up, I want to be a responsible adult...with a lawn that isnt dead and a garage that isnt full of garbage for another week. Hey maybe next week I can actually park in the garage!
