Nellie, can you send "your guys" to my house. 
I was working all week to get the grass down to a manageable height.  After 3 weeks of not mowing, I guess longer if you figure it had not been done since last year, I could have waited 1 more week and had it baled. 
The "guys" doing the neighbors lawn stopped and he has been after me for 2 years now to let him do my lawn and I always said no....well he got me at a week, hot, exhausted moment and I broke down and said he could knock down the tall stuff.  got it done for $25.00.  He said he could do that for the same price on occasion if I so chose. Was nice not having to do it myself for once. But I do like mowing it's just with the dull blade and the grass so tall I could not get through it. (and all I have is an electric mower, reasons of safety in case my husband gets hold of the mower..)
But I did get the mulch in the beds turned so I can get a delivery of mulch.  Now all I have left is the side where my Hosta plants are.  That will take a week or more to get under control.

nikki,
wouldn't that be a real 'road trip'
you probably should let him come by on some schedule, as hard as you work to take care of hubby it would relieve you of the 'grunt' work'         

I guess we're on weekly schedule now
they came yesterday again     and it really needed a cut

I'll second that Maxine!  But I had to do it anyway.  Yesterday the front, today the back.  My husband did get some quotes from a few people to do the landscaping but no decision yet about who he wants to hire.  He better hurry up and get somebody because I'm ready to quit!

One neighbor mowed early an edged up as I planted. Between the sneezing, pollen, mowing and extra activities I worked as fast as possible to beat the heat

Would you feel better if you paid yourself for doing the yard work? 
Take the 30-40 or more that you would pay per week and set it into an account for yourself.

I chopped the weeds that were turning into seeds before it rained again. It was not as hot as it has been. It was dry and it looked like I was in the great dust bowl at times.
