First of all, HAPPY FRIDAY! It’s so nice to see the week come to an end! I feel as though it’s kind of dragged on.
Second of all, I have beef!! No, no…I’m not speaking of the juicy hamburger kind of beef. I’m speaking of the kind where I have a problem with something. And today’s your lucky day! I’m gonna get right up on my soapbox and tell you all what it is!!
As you could have guessed by the title of this blog, I’m a small town country girl! I love where I live. There are a few problems though.
You see I live on a dirt road and I don’t really have a lot of houses around me like you would find in typical suburbia. As nice as it is to not have any neighbors and lots of privacy I still get these guys…
LOTS OF FLIES!
Every year around this time the flies start hibernating or something within the corners of my house!!! It’s not just one or two it’s about a dozen per room! O.K, well just kill them and get on with it, you say Lindsay? Well, I HATE FLIES and they always come back! I’m actually convinced that the more I kill them, the more they mutate and multiply!! It’s quite frightening I assure you….
Now, I live in a home that I am very proud of! It’s white siding and a green roof! O.k, right now you’re probably have this image of this house with pristine white siding. Well, get that thought out of your head because this is what happens when you live in the country……
Bugs and spider webs that are CRAZY sticky!
These webs are the kind that stick to the house and won’t sweep off with a broom. It’s my nemesis, it drives me crazy! We have to take a pressure washer to these areas twice a year!
Lastly, I’d like you, Jason Aldeen with your Dirt Road Anthem and you there, Mr. Keith Urban and your Where The Blacktop Ends and SHOVE IT! Or better yet let’s make another song and perform a duet, it will go:
Back country I like to drive slow
where the fields of green grass grow.
I know a slower speed is a must
or my pick up truck with shoot a lot of dust!
Yes, I think that could be a billboard hit! Hopefully the song will help all the crazy fast drivers to slow it down so that I don’t need to spit dirt out of my mouth when I’m walking on the road!
I’m stepping down now, the vent is over. :-)
